Issue number but no volume number for journal
Any suggestions as to how to format an entry in Zotero (I'm actually using Juris-M but that shouldn't matter for this purpose) for an article in a journal has no volume numbers but has issue numbers that restart every year? This is common among academic journals in China: the "volume number" will be the year and each issue (which has separate pagination) is numbered 1 through n.
An issue number without a volume number is clearly wrong, since it will be treated as a running issue number; the year in the volume position also looks odd. Moreover, there may not be a date more precise than the year associated with the issue.
It's not even clear from the Chicago Manual (my preferred style) how this should be formatted, but the best option seems to be something like (in a bibliography):
Author, Alice. "Disquisitions on Matters of Some Importance." Journal of Conceptual Inquiry 2009, no. 7 (2009): 73-102.
It seems redundant to give the year twice, and potentially misleading to have 2009 in the volume position (this might be the journal's first year of publication, or its hundredth), but I don't see any other way to handle it. Ideas (both in terms of how this should go into Zotero and how the citation should look)?
