Conference proceedings dates showing twice with Word in-text citation

Need Answer

Hello,


I am new with Citavi and am coming upon a problem. Whenever I insert a citation in Word using APA style, the citation shows both the start and end year of the dates of the conference. What is the proper way to manage this? Should I just use one date in my reference or is this normal?


Thank your very much!

Hello Jose

Which Citavi version (5 or 6) and which APA style (6 or 7) do you work with? In which format did you enter the conference date in the field of the same name?

Kind regards,

Peter

Hello Peter,

I am using Citavi 6 and APA style 7. In the conference dates I would put something like 12/05/2020 - 13/05/2020. So when I add an in-text citation, it would appear like (Author Name 2020 - 2020). Is there a way to avoid this while keeping both dates, as the publication list at the end of the paper should include them?

Thanks in advance!

Dear José,

Thanks for your reply.

In order to determine the cause of the problem, we kindly ask you to send us a sample document (max. 3 pages). First, please link a new Word document to your Citavi project, and second, please insert via the Word Add-In only those references which have given you problems.

Please send us the Word document via our website at http://www.citavi.com/transfer. Under Message, please enter the following ticket number: #132101

If you are using a modified citation style, we kindly ask you to send us this file, too. You can find the corresponding file in your Documents folder under \Citavi 6\Custom Citation Styles (for Citavi 6).

Best regards

Dear José,

Thanks for your reply.

We have just published the corrected version of the style. Please restart Citavi if you are connected to the Internet so that Citavi can download the new style version from our server to your computer. Thank you for pointing out the problem.

In the "Conference dates" field, please enter the date range as: dd.MM.yyyy - dd.MM.yyyy

Best regards

Susanne
