Problem with author separators in the citations (EndNoteX6)

Hello,

 

I have a problem with setting the semicolon (journal requirements) as a separator in the citation of several authors. Although I set semicolon:  in the 'Citations' - 'Author lists' - Author Separators' - for '3 to 100 Authors' - 'between' - before last' and 'before last in format: Author (Year)' - I receive commas between Authors.

 

I will be grateful for any help!

Re: Problem with author separators in the citations (EndNoteX6)

Are you wanting to reflect this change in the citations or in the bibliography? - With the setting you are showing, it would affect the citations, and you only have 1, 2 or 1 et al displayed according to your settings.  You also have a space in front of the last semi-colon, which should probably not be there.  

 

the citations are showing for me, with those settings (started with APA 6th): 

(Pawluk, 2018; Pedersen et al., 2018; Prieto et al., 2018; Qian et al., 2018; Rossant and Tam, 2018; Smith et al., 2018; Tettey et al., 2018; Wang et al., 2018; Wu et al., 2018; Xiong et al., 2018)

 

And author (year)

Meyer et al. (2018); Nimmagadda et al. (2018)

 

You need to do this for the bibliography settings and you would need to see more than the 2 authors to get any of those semi-colons to show?

Re: Problem with author separators in the citations (EndNoteX6)

Thank you very much for your reply. I need to show the citations (not in bibliography) in the form as you gave (Pawluk, 2018; Pedersen et al., 2018; Prieto et al., 2018; etc.) but I have: (Pawluk, 2018, Pedersen et al., 2018, Prieto et al., 2018, etc.). with the settings what I showed earlier (I removed the space before the last semi-colon - thank you for your remark). I think I may have some error in EndNote software. Is it possible?

no, the separators you need changed are in the Citation template settings.  see the image attached.
