Editing APA style


I'm just starting with Zotero and I'd like to adjust APA style. Can you help me?

Changes in references would be :
- remove book collection
- remove uppercase in title after :
- italics number for journal if no volume exists

Thanks a lot,
  • What do you mean by "book collection"?

    The uppercase after : will, I believe, automatically disappear if you change the style ID (Zotero has that hardcoded for APA-type styles)

    (leaving the last one for someone else)
  • I’m not sure what you mean by the last one?
  • I figure this is "print issue number in italics if there's no volume #
  • Thank you for your help.

    By "book collection" I mean series. Sorry, bad translation from french to english.

    The uppercase after : -> APA style is selected in Zotero and Word.. but uppercase still there. Detail, I know ;)

    Last one -> maybe an exemple? Here, its ok. 97 will be in italic :

    Augier, P. (2018). Une médiation par l’art à l’école : Un espace sans élèves ni enseignants. Revue de l’enfance et de l’adolescence, 97(1), 197‑211. https://doi.org/10.3917/read.097.0197

    But with this one, i don't want parentheses and would like 33 in italic :

    Waldis, B., & Rivier, R. (2014). Médiation culturelle et action d’art collective dans l’espace public : Transformations, participations et réappropriations. InfoAnimation, (33), 17‑18.

  • Any help please?

    Uppercase after colon:
    This is hard-coded in by Zotero for styles with an id that starts with “apa”. Change the id to anything that doesn’t start with that to suppress.

    For the issue number:
    Personally, I would recommend storing "33" in Volume, instead of Issue in this case. That "33" really is functioning as a volume number, rather than an issue number.

    If you do want to change the style, find
    <text variable="volume" font-style="italic"/>
    <text variable="issue" prefix="(" suffix=")"/>

    And change it to:
    <if variable="volume">
    <text variable="volume" font-style="italic"/>
    <text variable="issue" prefix="(" suffix=")"/>
    <text variable="issue" font-style="italic"/>
