This question already has an answer here:

In APA style all significant words of the journal name are to be captalized, for example: Journal of Personality and Individual Differences. apacite package seems to not do it automatically, so I have two alternatives:

  1. Manually changes all my bibliography entries (but they are too many!);
  2. Manually force apacite to capitalize journals (but only significant words).

I don't know how I can carry out point 2. Is it possible? Could someone help me?

    If your .bib file has “Journal of personality and individual differences” the information has been lost. – egreg Nov 14 '13 at 18:14
  • I thought there was a method to modify the apacite.sty file in order to capitalize journal names... – this.is.not.a.nick Nov 14 '13 at 22:43
  • There's no BibTeX function for capitalizing. Only for lowercasing. – egreg Nov 14 '13 at 22:52
  • See this question for the context to this problem. I'm not sure I would call this one a duplicate, but the linked answers do make it redundant. – alexis May 16 '14 at 14:09

BibTeX has the possibility of lowercasing titles, but not of uppercasing them, because this requires subtle decision based on semantics.
