When I am inserting my bibliography (AMA format, 6th edition) the app is inserting a bibliography into word with only the first letter of the last name, i.e. John Smith is being inserted as S J. Please let me know how to make the full last name appear again in the biblio.

Hi Nima,

Thanks for your query. We had a detailed look at your issue but could not locate the exact citation style. Are you referring to American Medical Association 6th Edition? If yes, we do not have it in colwiz nor could we find its source. Any details from your in this regard would help greatly.

I have the exact same query and this applies to all the styles, including AMA as well as IEEE. Only the first letter of the last name is being used and not the whole last name as is is standard in AMA (American Medical Association).

I'm having the same problem. My citations look like this:

[9] C. FL, T. LL, and Y. SE, “The heritability of gender identity disorder in a child and adolescent twin sample.,” Jul. 2002.
