How to insert references as Name (Year)?

Violeta G. shared this question 4 years ago

How do I make in-text citations that include the Name (year) and that stay this way without reverting to (Name, year)?

In the Word Add-In, please select the reference or knowledge item and click Insert Advanced.

Instead of the standard formatting (Miller 2013) you will see the following quick insert options:

  • Clicking (Person) results in (Miller)
  • Clicking (Year) results in (2013)
  • Clicking Person (Year) results in Miller (2013). You can enter additional text between the author and the date fields.

In addition to the quick insert options, you can also insert a reference with other formatting. Year only, Person only and Person (Year) are the same as the quick insert options. They can also be combined with the option No parentheses.

Kind regards
