upload customized reference type

It would be great if a customized reference type in the EndNote desktop version could be uploaded in EndNoteWeb. Researchers, profs and students often have bibliographic wishes that are slightly different from output styles like APA 6th. It is perfectly possible to meet those wishes in the desktop version, but up till now it is impossible to upload that adapted version to EndNoteWeb. That is one reason why profs can't convince students to use EndNoteWeb. 

I hope our suggestion will be taken in consideration. I'm sure you EndNoteguys won't let us down!

Re: upload customized reference type

Individuals can't upload custom styles, but your local site administrator should be able to (if you can discover who they are).

Re: upload customized reference type

That's what we did. We managed to upload our customized style, but when we tested afterwards, things remained the same. We even had an emailconversation with the helpdesk. They told us it wasn't possible to upload a custom made style. 

 

We first adjusted an outputstyle in EndNote X7  (attachment 1)

You can see we inserted other reference types. We also made some changes in the bibliography templates.

 

Then we uploaded everything to EndNoteWeb. (attachment 2)

 

The EndNote style we made, appears in the custom list, but when we want to add a new reference in EndNoteWeb, the reference types we first made just don’t appear in the list. (attachment 3)

 

Please take a look

Re: upload customized reference type

Ah, that makes it clearer - yes, you can upload customised styles but you can't upload custom reference types.

 

Do you actually need to set up a new reference type rather than using one of the existing ones and changing the relevant part of the output style to modify the way it prints?
