What Do I Do With Conference Papers?
June 13, 2011
The Conference Paper and Conference Proceedings reference types in EndNote are intended for unpublished verbal presentations of papers/proceedings. These will not display correctly for published conference papers. These are most commonly entered as a Book Section – when the papers are from a book(s). See the example below.
Occasionally conference papers may be published as part of a regular series with volume/issue and page numbers (eg: like for the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences) – in which case they can alternatively be entered as Journal Articles.
Published Conference Papers
Using the Book Section reference type:
- Dietrich, J., & Stewart, L. (2010). Component contracts in Eclipse – A case study. In L. Grunske, R. Reussner, & F. Plasil (Eds.), 13th International Symposium on Component-Based Software Engineering, CBSE 2010 (Vol. 6092, Lecture Notes in Computer Science, pp. 150-165). Springer. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-642-13238-4_9
The following fields are used:
– Author and Title are for the paper author and title.
– Editor(s) are the authors of the whole volume.
– Volume can be used if there is a relevant number.
Using the Journal Article reference type
(This is only an option for papers from a regular series title with sequential volume numbers.)
- Dietrich, J., & Stewart, L. (2010). Component contracts in Eclipse – A case study. Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 6092, 150-165. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-642-13238-4_9
