How do I add a book published collaboratively by two distinct organizations?
I have a book that was published through a collaboration of two distinct organizations in two different locations. Since there is only one "Publisher" and "Place" field, how should I go about entering this data into Zotero?
If you do want the CMoS proposed (or equivalent in other styles) that's not possible. I think
Chicago and London: University of Chicago Press; Weidenfeld and Nicolson
is an acceptable alternative (and you can enter those into place and publisher respectively)
Place: City1, State1 and City2, State2
Publisher: Organization1 and Organization2
But I believe this will result in something similar to this in the bibliography:
Organization1 and Organization2: City1, State1 and City2, State2
FWIW: The two publishers are actually two organizations who collaborated on the work that went into doing the research reported on in the book.
Did the publishers themselves collaborate on this publication/report or did organizations serve as administrative authors in a report jointly published by two publishers? I'm really asking if you needed both publishers to be included or both organizational authors. I'm thinking of books that are published by houses of the Holtzbrinck-Springer-Nature Group. The same book can be found published by Springer, by Macmillan, or by Palgrave depending on where the book is sold. Same authors and content but different covers and publisher locations. I want to know about how to locate the book and more importantly the authors of the book. Other examples are reports published (and authored by the organization) Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors without Borders. Depending upon the translation the publication place will differ (Amsterdam, Brussels, Geneva). There are lots of books that list a publisher with two or more publisher locations. Some Holtzbrink books list multiple publisher names and places of publication in the same book.
What will be important information for the manuscript target and for the people who read your report?
Here's what the publishing information looks like inside the book (periods added because duplicate spaces are removed from comments):
Copyright © 20XX
Organization Number One . . . . . . . . Organization Number Two
PO Box 1234 . . . . . . . . . . . . . and . . PO Box 5678
City 1, State 1 12345 . . . . . . . . . . . . City 2, State 2 67890

As far as I can tell, both organizations were equally involved in writing and publishing the book.
"At the invitation of the Organization Number One (ON1), several scientists (all faculty or adjunct faculty at ON1) have banded together to investigate this issue. Sponsored jointly by ON1 and the Organization Number Two (ON2) ...".
So, it sounds like Organization Number One was the primary publisher, and Organization Number Two primarily functioned as a source of funding.
