Zeitschrift für Erziehungswissenschaft (German) ZfE

Hello,

First of all I wanted to say that I am grateful for the Zeitschrift für Erziehungswissenschaft (ZfE) citation style.

I have noticed a couple of deviations from the ZfE manuscript guidelines:

http://www.zfe-online.de/images/ZfE_Manuskripthinweise_2014.pdf

1) The line spacing should be 1.15 instead of 2(?).

2) In the ZfE journal itself, there is a : after Zugegriffen, i.e. Zugegriffen: instead of just Zugegriffen when citing sources with a link. There also has to be a point after the access date.
Guideline version:
Beispiel für ein Internet-Dokument:
Statistisches Bundesamt Deutschland (2000). Bevölkerungsentwicklung Deutschlands bis zum Jahr 2050. Ergebnisse der 9. koordinierten Bevölkerungsvorausberechnung,
Wiesbaden. http://www.destatis.de/download/veroe/bevoe.pdf. Zugegriffen: 20. Juni 2005.
Current output:
Statistisches Bundesamt Deutschland (2000). Bevölkerungsentwicklung Deutschlands bis zum Jahr 2050. Ergebnisse der 9. koordinierten Bevölkerungsvorausberechnung, Wiesbaden. http://www.destatis.de/download/veroe/bevoe.pdf. Zugegriffen 20. Juni 2005
3) The DOI representation is legitimate but I would make it identical to the Zotero APA style.

4) When citing from an edited volume, why is there a comma after the editors name before the &-sign while it is not required with only two editors?

5) They require – like APA – to differentiate between journals paginated by year and by issue. How can this be solved?

6) How can the following be implemented (if at all).
Beispiel mit einer Institution als Hrsg., welche im Text abgekürzt genannt wird:
KMK (2010) = Konferenz der Kultusminister der Länder in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland. (2010). Konzeption der Kultusministerkonferenz zur Nutzung der Bildungsstandards für die Unterrichtsentwicklung. Köln: Carl Link.
  • edited July 2, 2015
    6) Save "Konferenz der Kulturminister der Länder in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland" as author and for the inline citation you can use suppress author and write the abbreviation manually as the style wishes.
  • The journal mention that they follow the Springer APA style, as do several other journals, see the dependent styles here. Moreover, we use the same style for English and German (maybe other languages as well). I am not sure at which level we can/should make a change. @adamsmith, @rmzelle: Can you give some guidance here?
  • 6) Save "Konferenz der Kulturminister der Länder in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland" as author and for the inline citation you can use suppress author and write the abbreviation manually as the style wishes.
    Good idea but how would I get the correct output for the reference list? Perhaps saving: "KMK (2010) = Konferenz der Kultusminister der Länder in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland" as author? But this would make the zotero entry only useful with the ZfE style, wouldn't it?

    Thanks for the link to the parent style. I hope minor adjustments are possible. Perhaps I could make some custom modifications for myself. However, as I do not know CSL I would need some guidance on how to implement the changes.

    Your input would be appreciated.



    I have come across another ZfE style issue:

    7) When citing a source with multiple authors, the current ZfE style gives me the following output:

    (Döbert u. a. 2008, S. 99)

    However, according the ZfE manuscript guidelines from 2014 it should be as follows:

    (Döbert et al. 2008, S. 99)

    I guess this is related to language localization. However, ZfE style requires the Latin et al. for multiple authors but German page reference S. for Seite.

    I received some help from @adamsmith:

    1) It is not possible to change the line spacing in the style.
    2) This can be changed to include to ":" always, i.e. "Zugegriffen:".
    3) We are following here Springer's style manual and there are enough examples where they use "doi:".
    4) The style (English) guide from Springer include a comma before the & also when there are onle two authors/editors. However, it is for me not clear if this is the same for the styles in German.
    5) Not possible within the style.
    6) Not possible within the style.
    7) This can be changed to replace the "u. a." with "et al.".

    Thus, I can change 2) and 7) through overwriting the local terms in the parent style for "de".
  • I'm happy for you to change 2) and 7).

    However, I only the ZfE style fairly well.


    The Kölner Zeitschrift für Soziologie und Sozialpsychologie (KZfSS) that is also published by Springer has its own stylistic variations and does not comply with the Springer guidance regarding 4), for example. KZfSS complies with the proposed changes of 2) and 7) though. See: http://www.uni-koeln.de/kzfss/konventionen/kskonms.htm
  • I've found to more German Springer journals that follow ZfE in omitting a comma between two editors (not authors) in book chapter references.

    This is some evidence that when citing a chapter from an edited volume,there has to be a comma after the editors name before the &-sign with three or more editors while it is omitted with only two editors in the German Springer APA style.
  • Dear zuphilip,

    It would be great if you could change 2) and 7) as proposed. Many thanks!
  • We fixed 2) and 7) now. Sorry for the delay. Thanks for reporting and the discussion.
