5.4 Adding text to a reference in the text

There are special features for adding text to references in the text. These go only for Author/Date styles like APA 6th.
It concerns matters such as adding a text like “also see”, but also for adding page numbers.

It is essential not to do these changes directly in Word but as we show it to you here.
Changes made in Word will disappear when you start Word again.

In a text arranged according to an Author/Date style you can make changes to in-text citation.
Do that by selecting that reference in the text in Word and then click on 

You will see the following screen:

When you want to add text preceding a reference, then select that specific reference and type after Prefix (at the bottom): also see
You need to type a space after also see. Click on OK.
In the text below “also see ” has been added to the first reference that way.

Journal impact factors vary from year to year. Therefore it is more reliable to use impact factors of several years instead if just one year. Research has shown that review articles receive more citations than research articles (also see Moed & Van Leeuwen, 1995). Journals with many review articles can therefore more easily get a high impact factor than journals with many research articles.

Recently a discussion has started about the use of impact factors in research evaluation because the Internet has led to new forms of publication (Moed, 2006; Zhao, 2005).

This way you can also add page numbers after Pages.
You only type the page number (e.g. 11), not p. and so on. 
In the text below arranged according to the APA 6th style, page numbers have been added to the last two references that way. 
Behind Pages “136” was added and also “1405-1406”.

Adding page numbers that way does not work for all styles.
If it does not work this way use Suffix to add page numbers.
That way you have to type exactly what you want, for instance “[comma][space]p. 136”.
