having trouble getting format correctly for APA

Hi 

I'm hoping someone can help me - I'm having trouble getting endnote to correctly format some of my entries.

 

for example I have a reference for

Bellotti, V., Ducheneaut, N., Howard, M., Smith, I., & Grinter, R. E. (2005). Quality versus quantity: E-mail-centric task management and its relation with overload. Human-computer interaction20(1), 89-138.

(above copied from google scholar apa style)

 

Endnote can't find an update for this and I've played around with the format of the authores names a lot (using semicolons, comma, order of names and can't get it to put this out.....here is what I get.... 

 

Bellotti, V., Nicolas Ducheneaut, Mark Howard, Ian Smith, & Rebecca Grinter. (2005). "Quality versus quantity: E-mail-centric task management and its relation with overload.". Human-computer interaction, 20(1), 89-138.

or

Bellotti, V. D., Nicolas; Howard, Mark; Smith, Ian; Grinter, Rebecca. (2005). "Quality versus quantity: E-mail-centric task management and its relation with overload.". Human-computer interaction, 20(1), 89-138.

 

How do I get the correct order/style? (I've read a bunch of your stuff online and can't figure it out)

HELP!!!!

Re: having trouble getting format correctly for APA

The issue could be the way you have the Authors entered.

 

I would make sure you have the authors entered one name per line.

 

 

Please see the following KB articles on this type of issue.

If this does not resolve the issue then

Re: having trouble getting format correctly for APA

Authors must be entered in the record -  one per line.  Best to enter surname, firstname or with spaces between the initials.  

 

 

Bellotti, V.

Ducheneaut, Nicolas

Howard, Mark 

Smith, Ian

Grinter, Rebecca E. 

 

or 

 

Bellotti, V

Ducheneaut, N

Howard, M  

Smith, I

Grinter, R E

 

then your output style settings handle the initial or full firstname and ordering.  What output style are you using?
