Format for Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience ?

What format would be the best fit for Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience? From the examples, it looks roughly APA-ish (except abbreviated journal names in the reference list), or generally author-date, but perhaps there is a better choice?

Re: How to escape escape characters?

OK. First I tried changing the subscript character to _ but I had any number of _ in URLs, etc., so I changed it to \ (the sole remaining option), and BookEnds beachballed. After several minutes, I force quit. When I reopened it and tried opening the library again, beachball again: force quit. Then ...

How to escape escape characters?

I have a couple of references with a pipe sign in the title, like this: Perlman, G., & Horan, F. L. (1986). Report on UNIX|STAT release 5.1: Data analysis programs for UNIX and MSDOS. Behavior Research Methods, Instruments, & Computers, 18(2), 168-176. doi:10.3758/BF03201019 I think the pipe sign is...

scan changes word theme

As my first Bookends project, I have converted a Word manuscript from Zotero to Bookends, and finally got an error-free scan. However, in the resulting document, my custom template was replaced with normal.dotm, causing the incorrect font to be used (and undoubtedly other problems). This is the most...

Re: Multiple journal names after Zotero import

OK, the first name is T2 and the second one is J2. This appears to be a bug in Zotero's export, since there were no J1s in the output and I'm assuming that T2 should be the second title line whereas J1 would be main journal name. Maybe not. I need the T2 ones. I think I'll strip them from the RIS fi...

Multiple journal names after Zotero import

I'm moving to Bookends from Zotero. I've imported all my references & pdf's with no hitches so far except one. A number of the references ended up with multiple newline separated journal names: Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition J. Exp. Psychol. Learn. Mem. Cogn. Jou...

A couple of somewhat interesting discoveries

The general topic is scripting Bookends, which I know from reading the forums is not something that is likely to come anytime soon. First, I've been playing around with Word fields, mostly with INCLUDETEXT as a way of inserting things like tables and figures into a document. I was annoyed by Bookend...

Unspecialing tmp citation delimiters?

Assuming that { and } are the temporary citation delimiters, how can I enter a sentence like this one into a manuscript ?

Author (Date) format?

In author-date style, I get it that "(Author, Date)" (i.e., entire citation parenthesized) is default and "Author, Date" (i.e., no parentheses) is produced with {*xyz}, but there is another very frequent citation format, "Author (Date)", that I don't see how to produce in Bookends except via Author ...

PsycInfo / CSA Illumina

The existing CSA filter is close but garbles the fields in PsycInfo searches, primarily because of a Source definition that doesn't match the search results. So I tried to modify it and it seems works OK for journal articles, but CSA uses the same field, SO: differently as a function of the type of ...
