Referencing styles

Hi,

I'm currently using the referencing style ISO 690 although it is surrounding
my numbers with round brackets " ( ) " and I would like to use square
brackets " [ ] " for example [23] - is there a way to use square brackets?

Thanks
James

Re: Referencing styles

Hi James,


There are two ISO 690 choices in Word 2007.

The built in bibliography styles are designed to try to follow generally accepted formatting for the various named entities. One of
the sources that shows that parens are the expected method in the numeric/Vancouver system is the
http://leeds.ac.uk/library/training/referencing

If you're willing to dig into the XML/XSL files that produce the output you can modify an existing style

(although I'd suggest giving it a new name and not modify the built in one) to do what you'd like.

Excellent thanks - That will take me a little while to get my head around.
Do you know if anyone has already done the harvard referecing system?

Re: Referencing styles

Hi James,

Somewhat surprisingly, no, I haven't yet found a Harvard referencing system XLS for Word 2007. It's somewhat surprising considering
how many folks could use it and that in universities I would suspect there are a fairly good sized population of folks who are
likely to be fluent in XML/XSLT creation

There are a couple of translator sets being worked on I've seen for going between other biblio managers and Word, but since there
are other solutions already available, many endorsed or recommended by schools, libraries and publications/journals, those seem to
be more widely used

Re: Referencing styles

James_h1023, could you tell me how to change () to [] in ISO 690 numerical
style? I've read the link
(http://blogs.msdn.com/microsoft_offi...ions-1011.aspx) but still cannot figure out how to do that.
