# Is there a way to specify the last connecting punctuation/word of the authors list in apacite?

How can I make apacite use a different connecting punctuation/word between the last 2 authors (in both the article body and bibliography)?

Instead of "Johnson, J. B., & Smith, J. (2013). Title of the article...", do "Johnson, J. B., 和 Smith, J. (2013). Title of the article...".

-

apacite.sty defines, and apacite.bst uses, the following macros for that:

\newcommand{\BBAA}{\&}  % between authors in parentheses and ref. sec.
\newcommand{\BBAB}{and} % between authors in text
\newcommand{\BBA}{\BBAA}


So do a

\renewcommand{\BBA}{\BBAB}


in your preamble after loading apacite.sty.

If you use a language file like english.apc (loaded automatically depending on the document language), these commands get redefined again when \begin{document} is issued. In this case,

\AtBeginDocument{%
\renewcommand{\BBAA}{and}%
}


should do the trick.
