Endnote X2 and American Sociological Association format

For Endnote users out there, I thought I would post bibliographic code for references in American Sociological Association format.  As I develop and refine these, I will post updates, but this might be helpful at least as a starting point for others users. I have lost the code on a couple of other occasions, and this seemed a community-friendly way to save a backup.

(I use an asterisk * to represent the figure to “Link adjacent text” in Endnote.) Users may need to use their own custom fields or create new ones in some cases.

  1. The basic rules for managing without conflict were crafted 2300 years ago – with incredible results. http://davidgjones.authorsxpress.com/2012/05/14/david-g-jones-author-of-the-school-of-sun-tzu/

      Thanks for the comment and the reference. Actually, those of us in the field of conflict transformation and peace studies have (I think rightly) increasingly abandoned the idea that we want or need to eliminate conflict. We often need more constructive nonviolent conflict (institutional or political and extra-institutional) that can generate social justice and thus more peaceful human relations.

      • Seems like a management nightmare – just to define the metrics would be mind-boggling. Why not work to control competition (make it a sporting thing) and neuter conflict. Seems cleaner and easier to me.
