Change textual citation "(author, year, p. )" for "(author, year, page)".

I'd like to change citation, to replace "(author, year, p. 1)" for "(author, year, page)" without "p.".

Example: (Atria, 1998, p. 1) for (Atria, 1998, 1).

Thank you so much!!!
  • What style are you using? What style are you trying to fit?

    And also, are you submitting this paper to a particular journal or outlet?
  • I'm using APA, American Pshycological Association 6th edition (no ampersand).
    No, Im not, I just want to have citation in that way. Thank you!
  • Download the .csl style file from here:

    Open in a text editor (like TextEdit, Notepad, etc.).

    <label variable="locator" form="short"/>

    And change it to:
    <else-if locator="page" match="none">
    <label variable="locator" form="short"/>

    Change the style name and style ID at the top of the file to something else, save, and install.

  • Thank you so much, but I make a mistake when I start this conversation because I´d like to change for (Author, year: page), not for (Author, year, page). Its a colon after the year, not a comma. Could you help me with this? Thank you anyway

    In addition to the other change, you'll also want to make the change here (line 627):
    <group delimiter=", ">
    <text macro="author-short"/>
    <text macro="issued-year"/>
    <text macro="citation-locator"/>

    change to:
    <group delimiter=", ">
    <text macro="author-short"/>
    <text macro="issued-year"/>
    <text macro="citation-locator" prefix=": "/>
  • I´m so sorry, I don´t know it was rude to do that. I just did it because it was no possible to change my original comment (which have a mistake) and I thought that everyone will see that post mistaken. I hope you understand this because my english is not so good.

    Thank you so much for your help anyway! It works perfectly!!
  • (if you hover over your post (at the top right) there is a little gear icon that you can click to edit it. If you think your post has been forgotten -- which does happen -- just add another post to that thread, which will "bump" it to the top).
  • Ah, ok! I see it now.
    Thank you, so helpful
