I set up Srivener to invoke Mendeley, and when I copied a citation from Mendeley—-btw I could have set up Scrivener to start any exe file; it’s not partial to bib/cit software, the cite was pasted into Scrivener as plain test: “Levett, L. M., & Kovera, M. B. (2008, August). The effectiveness of opposing expert witnesses for educating jurors about unreliable expert evidence. Law and human behavior. doi:10.1007/s10979-007-9113-9.” When I cite to this article again in the same Scrivener doc or another and when I compile the docs to an RTF file, my huge concern is how will Word handle subsequent citations to the same article. I.e., unless the subsequent cites to the same article are converted to short cites—-”(Levett & Kovera, 2008, p.2)” Scrivener would continue to be unacceptable to me. (I surmise from Dr. Andres previous post that Endnote, which is not in my budget, would handle the conversion to short citations seemlessly through the MS Word plug-in.)
