I want to keep the month and day from showing up in bibliography references. I'm using apacite. Is there a way to suppress the two from being displayed without switching bibliography style and without manually deleting the month and day fields from the bib entries?

  • It should be easy to do with biblatex-apa.

  • @Bernard - It's not too difficult with the apacite citation management package either. :-)

  • @Mico: I don't know apacite well enoughto give this advice. For me, the main point is that biblatex is comparatively easy to customise, in general.

To suppress showing the contents of any month and day fields when using the apacite citation management package and apacite bibliography style, I suggest you issue the following command in the preamble:

\AtBeginDocument{\renewcommand{\APACrefYearMonthDay}[3]{\BBOP{#1}\BBCP}}

Notice that this command takes 3 arguments but ignores the second and third argument. I will let you form an educated guess as to what the first argument is about.
