Post Help editing CSL style in Docear4Word
on: April 23, 2016, 02:45

Hi,

I am having a couple of issues using APA 6th style in Docear4Word.

1. There is a comma after the author name for in text citations with the author's name in the text. Instead of "Smith (2010)" it puts "Smith, (2010)". It does this consistently.

2. When I put an abbreviation for a journal name in bibliography it removes the space between words. E.g., "Curr Allergy Asthm R" becomes "CurrAllergyAsthmR".

Neither of these are issues when I use APA 5th style.

Thanks

Actually, after further research, I believe this is a bug in Docear4Word rather than a problem with the CSL code.

I am using windows 7, Docear 1.2, docear4Word 1.3 with Microsoft word 365.

Another issue is with APA 5th it puts \"&\" instead of \"and\" after the first author name for in text citations with the authors\' name in the text. Instead of \"Smith and Jones (2010)\" it puts \"Smith & Jones (2010)\".
