# Customizing Citation Key Templates to change et al in Italics

Sathiyaraj S. shared this question ago

Sir,

While citing authors default Citation Key template insert authors like this (Abdallah et al., 2022). In this I need to change et al from normal text to italicized (Abdallah et al., 2022). There is no option to chnage this as it is showing only Lowercase and upper case option. Is there any other way to achieve this.
