In text citation - comma not appearing between author and year

Hi,

I’m using paperpile in Google docs, with the citation style Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience

Even though the text citations should look like this:
(Koonin and Wolf, 2006; Morris, 2008; Hasan et al., 2009)

When inserting a new citation it comes up without the comma, like this:
(Koonin and Wolf 2006; Morris 2008; Hasan et al. 2009)

How can I sort this out?

Thanks

This happens to me too. I have been just manually adding the comma but I was wondering if APA 7th edition changed the comma- it didn’t.

Welcome to our forum, @vfurey and @DRPRW77. If working in Google Docs, have you already clicked ‘Format citations’ on the Paperpile options in the top menu? Only then do in-text citations acquire proper formatting and the bibliography is created/updated. Let me know if this wasn’t the case for you.

Here’s a quick guide to help you write and cite in Google Docs: Getting started with Paperpile and Google Docs | Paperpile.

That fixed it. Thank you.
