Using abbreviations for the Tertiary tile field
Author: Harry Hoffner    Posted: Mon, 14 Apr 2003 07:53:05 -0500

Some journals and publishers that I write for prefer the series titles
written out in full, while others prefer abbreviated ones. To save me from
having to search and replace for a large number of different series titles
before submitting each paper I would like to be aable to use a term list
like that provided for journals, which gives me the option of abbreviating
or leaving the full title. But since most of the books I cite which are in
series are edited volumes of essays, the Reference type in which they appear
is "Book Section", in which the book's series title appears in the Tertiary
(not Seconday) Title field, to which the Journal Abbreviation capability
apparently does not apply. If I interchange the data in the Secondary Title
and Teriary title fields in all records of the Book Section reference type,
I can use the Term List for Journals, but then I have to change the
templates for all the readymade styles sent with EndNote, such as Chicago 1
and 2, etc.

Does anyone know of a way in EndNote that I can establish abbreviations for
the Tertiary Title field, so as not to have to interchange the data in that
field with the Secondary title? If there is no way, I wonder if the endNote
Developer would like to consider implementing abbreviation (term) lists for
all title fields? Or am I just overlooking an existing capability? Sorry if
I am. Please enlighten me.

Harry,

I'm having the same problem. I've got a help request in at Endnote
so I'll let you know what I find out.

Additionally, I have the problem that when a title in my Journals list
matches the title of a book, the abbreviation is used. But this ONLY
happens when I have used "Book Section" for the title. This is, of
course, where the "Series Title" or "Journal" otherwise normally
appears, but it has been bumped down to the Tertiary Title in "Book
Section."
