Tips for manual entry
If you can't find a particular field required for the reference type, check you are using the correct template. Some less common reference types require specific and unusual adjustments. Check APA 6th & EndNote if you are having trouble
For corporate or group authors, e.g. a report by Creative New Zealand, you must add a comma directly after the last letter of the name. Otherwise the software will assume it is the name of an individual and output it as Zealand, C.N.
Spelling and capitalisation must be entered correctly. Check APA 6th Referencing Style guide (or a guide to the style you are using) if you are unsure
Authors' name - enter full names into the author's field. If you have a number of articles written by an author in your library, make sure all references should use exact same full name, e.g. do not use N. Smith in one record and Nick Smith in another.
Every template has a large number of fields in addition to those required for referencing. You can use these to input a journal abstract or source language, for example. Other fields may be used to add information relating to your specific research interests that can be retrieved using the Search panel
