RefWorks: Inserting page numbers

Inserting page numbers or other info into a RefWorks citation

Adapting or adding information such as pages numbers to footnotes or parenthetical citations requires inserting special characters into the RefWorks temporary citation.

FOOTNOTES (Chicago, MLA, Turabian, etc. citation styles)

/s Cite a specific page in-text or in a footnote or endnote. The /s switch is an override for the page numbers stored in the database record. By applying this switch you can cite specific page numbers both in-text citation and in a generated footnote or endnote. For example, a footnote citation would look like {{1 Smith /s43}}. The footnote will include the page number 43 instead of the page number(s) in the reference itself.

IN-TEXT-CITATIONS (APA, MLA, Turabian, Chicago, etc. styles):

/y Suppress the year field. This switch is used to hide the year field of a specific reference. Your citation should look like this, {{1 Smith 2003/y}} where the RefId number is 1. After formatting it would be, (Smith).

/a Suppress the author field. This switch is used to hide the Primary Author field for a specific reference. Your citation should look like this, {{1 Smith 2003/a}} After formatting it would be, (2003).

/h Hidden text. This switch is used to hide an entire citation. This switch takes precedence over all other switches. It will not only hide the reference it is attached to, but all other references in the specific citation location as well. The hidden references will, however, still be included in the bibliography. A hidden citation would look like this, {{1 Smith 2003/h}}. When formatted it would not appear at all.

/f Following text. This switch is used to place text at the end of a specific reference citation. You could use this switch to add page numbers after the author and year information. Your citation would look like this, {{1 Smith 2003/f p. 43}}. After formatting it would be, (Smith 2003 p. 43).

/p Preceding text. This switch is used to place text in front of a specific reference citation. All text up to the next switch or the end of the reference citation is used as the preceding text, including spaces and tab characters. Your citation would look like this, {{1 Smith 2003/pUnpublished work by }}. After formatting the citation would be (Unpublished work by Smith 2003).
