JSTOR "issue" getting filled with wrong info

On a Mac with Safari 7.0.1 and the Zotero standalone.

Clicking on the connector button when viewing an article in JSTOR gets the wrong info stuck into the "issue" field. For example,


which has the following RIS:

The M1 data seems to get put into the issue field, instead of [nothing].
  • Thanks, we'll take a look.
  • @Aurimas - you have M1 as a fallback for issue in the RIS translator. Thoughts on how to handle this? I see two main options:
    1. Remove it in the JSTOR web translator or
    2. Remove it when we have an IS tag, even when it's empty.
  • @John, should be fixed now. Update your translators via Preferences -> General -> Update Now

    @adamsmith, went with option 1
  • Excellent. Thanks!
  • This was caused by the recent change to support Endnote import. Endnote (for some reason) puts journal issue numbers into 'M1'. Does this fix still maintain the Endote compatibility? If not, is it reasonable to submit a forked "Endnote Import" to handle its inconsistencies?
  • the fix is in the JSTOR translator, so Endnote import isn't affected.
