Bracket positioning: Author (Year) instead of (Author Year)

Sep 20, 2013 at 12:09 PM
Hi,
I have been given instructions to write an article using the Harvard AGPS system: http://www.usq.edu.au/library/referencing/harvard-agps-referencing-guide

I have downloaded it from BibWord and installed it onto MSWord.

The problem is I want citations to display Author (Year) instead of (Author Year), i.e. change the position of the brackets. I have tried to explore the .xsl but was not able to find a way to make this modification.

Is it possible to change the way the citations are displayed?

The surrounding brackets can easily be removed.

In the code, just change
      <openbracket>(</openbracket>
      <closebracket>)</closebracket>
into
      <openbracket></openbracket>
      <closebracket></closebracket>
As for adding brackets around the year, you will have to edit the different format strings for all sources.

For example
{ %Year|"n.d."{%YearSuffix%}}
would become
{ (%Year|"n.d."{%YearSuffix%})}
