Abbreviating Organization Titles for In-text citations


I am using Zotero for APA-7 citations. I need to cite a particular organization quite often. APA allows for the abbreviation of the organization in the in-text citation after the first mention of it. For example, the first citation would be: (United States of America [USA], 2023), and the second citation would be (USA, 2023). Is there a way I can use Zotero for this without making changes to the reference entry?

Thank you!
  • Not currently, no. It's generally fine (in the sense of: accepted by journals using APA) to use the short form as the author and the long form as the publisher/institution, but you can't get the exact APA requirements.
