Some referencing styles require you to use the journal's full name, others require a standardised abbreviation. EndNote can substitute one version of a journal's name for another in the bibliography depending on the style you are using.
There are 2 steps to this process.
- When a journal name is entered into the journal name field - it is saved into the journals term list - From the top menu select Tools - Open Term Lists - Journals Term List. Select and delete all the journal names in this list. Next click on the Lists tab and click Import List to import the required list from the selection which appears at the next screen.
Once your list of journal names has been imported you can update this list to add any journal names in your library that are not in this list - these will need to be manually edited to add the full names or the abbreviations - see section on Term Lists in this guide for how to do this.
- Customise your style (if necessary) to make sure that the style template for journal names is set to the correct journal name format - full journal name or one of the Abbreviations - this has already been set up for styles such as Harvard UofA, Vancouver, APA, and many others.
