Spell out periodical name

Hello,


I am quoting an article from a journal entitled "October" (https://www.jstor.org/journal/october). I am using MLA 8th edition. However, Citavi shortens it to "Oct.", so that my cited work appears as below in the bibliography:


Grossmann, Atina. “A Question of Silence: The Rape of German Women by Occupation Soldiers.” Oct., vol. 72, Spring 1995, pp. 42–63.


Is there a way to override this abbreviation and have "October" be spelled out?


Thank you very much for helping me with such a detail-oriented inquiry!

Mélanie

Dear Mélanie,

Thank you for your message.

MLA 8th ed. should not use journal abbreviations.

Please check if the complete name is entered correctly under Lists > Periodicals > Edit in the "Name" field.

Kind regards,

Jana

Dear Jana,

Thank you for your swift response. I checked the "Name" field as you suggested, and saw that "October" was indeed spelled out. Is there another way to override the abbreviation in Citavi?
