NOTE: In the EndNote record, when entering corporate authors, put a comma after the name. For example:
The comma at the end of the corporate author name ensures the name displays correctly in the reference list at the end of the paper. Use the Preview tab in the Reference/Preview panel to check author formatting before inserting the citation into the paper.
Cite While You Write places field codes around and inside formatted citations in Word. These hidden codes allow EndNote to format, unformat, and reformat citations within Word. EndNote recommends you do NOT view field codes in Word.
Take precautions before using Cite While You Write: make copies of your Word document before sharing or opening those files in other word processors or another version of Word. If a formatted document is opened and saved with an incompatible word processor, the formatted EndNote citations and bibliography lose their field codes. When this happens, EndNote cannot reformat the document.
Before submitting a paper to a publisher, you may be asked to remove the field codes. Removing field codes deletes Word’s Cite While You Write field codes and saves the formatted citations and bibliography as text with all Word field codes.
Note: Because EndNote and Cite While You Write cannot reformat or unformat your paper once field codes are removed, the remove field codes utility makes a copy of your document without codes.
