I use \bibliographystyle{apalike-fr}. I use BibDesk. In the references I get this: enter image description here

How can I change change "éditeurs" into "Eds." and "Ed." if single editor ?

  • pp. is not a French abbreviation. It should always be p., whether singular or plural. That said, it's easier to do if you use biblatex with option style=apa.

  • If you want to submit to a journal, ask the editors for advice. Most likely, they don't allow biblatex.

Just open the apalike-fr.bst file and replace the code :

FUNCTION{fr.editeur}{       %% ", \'editeur" au singulier, ou " (\'editeur)"...
", \'editeur"
}

by

FUNCTION{fr.editeur}{       %% ", \'editeur" au singulier, ou " (\'editeur)"...
", Ed."
}

and also replace the code

FUNCTION{fr.editeurs}{      %% ", \'editeurs" au pluriel, ou " (\'editeurs)"...
", \'editeurs"
}

by

FUNCTION{fr.editeurs}{      %% ", \'editeurs" au pluriel, ou " (\'editeurs)"...
", Eds."
}

    ... and after changing the file content, save it under a different name to comply with the licence of latex. May 9, 2016 at 14:29
  • Thank you! I use Texpad for Mac and I can't find this file apelike-fr.bst. Where can I find it?

  • @user105139 just click on apalike-fr.bst in the above answer. May 9, 2016 at 19:03
  • @user105139, did this fix your problem ? May 10, 2016 at 11:01
  • I can open the URL but I have no idea what to do about it. I can't find the .bst file in my computer since I use Texpad for Mac, I found the folder by the terminal, but I might need to create that?
