Entering a Company Name in EndNote Web

If you have to enter a reference to a company (for example, if you are referencing an annual report), you need to be a little careful how you type it in the Author box.

For example, let's assume you want to add a reference to the American Marketing Company, Inc.

If you type American Marketing Company, Inc as the author, Endnote Web will treat the Inc as the author's first name, so in your bibliography, it will be listed as American Marketing Company, I.

The solution? Easy! Just put an extra comma in the author name. So, you need to type it as American Marketing Company,, Inc. or American Marketing Company, Inc.,

This will make sure it displays properly in your bibliography.
