Volume but no issue

In the APA 5 and APA 6 formats, when there is an issue number but no volume number (so what's entered in the Vol (Issue) field is "(115)" for example), the first parenthesis is not included in the formatted output. For example:

Kalish, C. W., & Sabbagh, M. A. (2007). Conventionality and cognitive development: Learning to think the right way. New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, 115), 1-9. doi:10.1002/cd.178

I could probably figure out to fix this; I mention it here because it's an included and popular format.
