How do I insert an organisation's acronym in my references using EndNote?
To include an acronym or abbreviation of an organisation's full name in references using EndNote, please follow these steps:
- Add the organisation's full name, followed by the bracketed acronym in the Author field of the EndNote reference, with a comma at the very end (this is to ensure it appears in the end text references correctly).
- The first time the reference is used as an in-text citation, insert the full name (with acronym) version.
- For second and subsequent uses of the organisation name, you may use the acronym only. To do this for an APA in-text reference:
Author (Year): use the edit function to change the reference format so that it is the Exclude Author style, and manually type the acronym before the date brackets.
(Author, Year): use the edit function to change the reference format as above, and add the acronym as a Prefix, remembering to type the comma and space after it so that it appears correctly.
