Journals are abbreviated – Endnote

I am a fan of Endnote, one small issue I stumbled upon was that when I edited some entries (specifically journal names) the references list seem to only partially update.

Easy way to solve this problem:

  1. Open Endnote
  2. Tools>Open Term Lists> Journals Term List
  3. Term tab
  4. Under “Full Journal” is what will be displayed in your reference list and so I found when I edited the name of the journal occasionally the full name would be listed under “Abbreviation” and not “Full Journal”.
  5. So, if under “Abbreviation” is what “Full Journal” must read, it can be easily edited with the “Edit Term…” button on the right.
  6. This correct change for the journal name should then be seen when your reference list is refreshed.
