Default [question] Removing the standard citation brackets in MS Word 2007

Hello Office 2007 users,

Is it possible to remove the standard brackets when inserting a citation in
your main text?
I would like like to add the APA-style in the following way == e,g.:
Peterson, 2007 instead of (Peterson, 2007)
The style withouth redundant brackets would be desirable in my footnotes.

Thanks in advance!

Thumbs up Answer: [question] Removing the standard citation brackets in MS Word 2007

Yes, it is possible to remove the standard citation brackets in MS Word 2007. Here's how you can do it:
  1. Click on the "References" tab in the ribbon at the top of the screen.
  2. Click on "Insert Citation" in the "Citations & Bibliography" section.
  3. Select the source you want to cite from the list that appears.
  4. Click on "Edit Citation" in the "Citations & Bibliography" section.
  5. In the "Edit Citation" dialog box, delete the text in the "Prefix" and "Suffix" fields.
  6. Click "OK" to save your changes.

Now, when you insert a citation in your main text, it should appear without the standard brackets. If you want to add the APA-style citation format, simply type the author's last name and the year of publication separated by a comma, like this: "Peterson, 2007". This format will also be used in your footnotes.

Yes. But it requires the editing of XSLT files.

The output of the APA style is created by APA.XSL locate in the
winword.exe\Bibliography\Style folder.

The decision on to put a leading and/or closing bracket depends on the
availability of the FirstAuthor and LastAuthor element.

Open bracket:

xsl:if
test="msxsl:node-set($ListPopulatedWithMain)/b:Citation/b:FirstAuthor"
xsl:call-template name="templ_prop_OpenBracket"/
/xsl:if

Close bracket:

xsl:if test="/b:Citation/b:LastAuthor"
xsl:call-template name="templ_prop_CloseBracket"/
/xsl:if

If you don't want the brackets to display, you can leave those two code
sections out.

Default [question] Removing the standard citation brackets in MS Word 2007

Thanks Yves. Your suggestion was effective to remove the brackets in
APA-style..
Now my university professor can't complain about it anymore :-).

Is it also possible to rename this modified APA-style in Word 2007, so that
I can use besides the original APA-style?
A simple "replace" of the APA-term in APA-without brackets doesn't give
useful results.

Regards,
Medioman
