Re: How to make "et al" appear in in-text citations in APA 6th

You need to make sure any changes are saved to a new output style and that you then select that output style in WORD on the ribbon, and not in Endnote to apply those changes.  This often means you need to show all styles and select the newly created one?

Then you are probably using an output style that is set up for footnotes and not for in text citations.  For a footnote style you need to insert the footnote using the word processor procedure and then insert the citation into the footnote.

When you change the author number from 6 to 3 in the edit box, you need to "Save" it. Either you give it another APA name or under the same name advisable give it a new name like APA 6the New or something.

Hi there,

 

I'm not sure whether you're still looking for a solution for the 'et al' issue, but if you try to add a blank space before 'et al' on the 'Author List page' in endnote, I think it should work, I'm having the same issue, now I fixed it. Hope it would work for you.

Re: How to make "et al" appear in in-text citations in APA 6th

Hi Leanne,

I am a brand new endnote user, so thanks in advance for your patience.

Under "Author Separators" I only seem to have 2 options.  Is there a way to create a 3rd option?  This is what I am trying to achieve:

2 Authors:

Always cite both authors' names in-text everytime you reference them. Example: Johnson and Smith (2009) found...

3-5 Authors:

Provide all the authors' last names when you first refer to a document with 3-5 authors. Only list the first author with the Latin abbreviation "et al." for any subsequent references.

Example:

   Jones, Chavez, Jackson, and Chen (2010) duplicated...

   Jones et al. (2010) further described...

6 or More Authors:

If a document has six or more authors, simply provide the last name of the first author with "et al." from the first citation to the last.

Example:

   Thomas et al. (2007) likened abnormal psychology to...

   ... distractions (Thomas et al., 2007).

Important Note: If you have two or more documents that look the same when shortened, please follow the guidelines set out in the Authors and Dates Matching section.

I think that is what the currrent settings will achieve?  

 

First appearance if less than 6, then all authors will be listed (that would be 2-5) the first time but if more than 2 but less than 6, only the first author will be listed et al.  

 

Subsequent appearances -- anything more than 2 (which would be listed as "Johnson and Smith") will be first author, et al.

Re: How to make "et al" appear in in-text citations in APA 6th

Hi there. I have been doing all what has been suggested but stil doesnt work.

I noticed that even though I save as a new style, as soon as I close it down and re-open the changes are gone.

 

Any reason for that?

Cheers
