English format dates showing as US format in bibliography

Need Answer

In my references my dates are e.g. 20 May 2020, but in the bibliography in all styles I have tried the dates are in US format, e.g. 5/20/2020. How can I make the dates in teh bibliography show in English formatting, e.g. 20/5/2020?

Hello Peter,

Please have a look at "British Journal of Dermatology" (here: Internet Document). If the date is defined in citation style as follows, you get the requested result:

/4806291106d323b1cd696b2ad4f7851a

Kind regards,

Peter

It would be great if one could use existing styles, such as Citavi Default, Harvard, APA, etc. without having an automatically American date format. Readers from New Zealand, Australia, and continental Europe will be confused by the American format.

Hi Iain,

Citavi always follows the manuscript guidelines. Maybe other reference management programs do this differently than we do. If so, I would be grateful for a tip. I would like to have a closer look at it.


Kind regards

Peter
