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The Conference Paper and Conference Proceedings reference types in EndNote are intended for unpublished verbal presentations of papers/proceedings.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:

Example Reference:

  • Dietrich, J., & Stewart, L. (2010). Component contracts in Eclipse – A case study. In L. Grunske, R. Reussner & F. Plasil (Eds.), Component-Based Software Engineering: 13th International Symposium, CBSE 2010, Prague, Czech Republic, June 2010, Proceedings (Vol. 6092 Lecture Notes in Computer Science, pp. 150-165). Prague: Springer.

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.
