Translator for American Economic Review and other AEA journals


it would be great to have support for all the AEA journals including American Economic Review, Journal of Economic Perspectives, American Economic Journal: Applied Economics, etc (full list These are some of the most important journals in economics. Here is an example page:

Currently, the only translator I can use is DOI based and not site-specific. The DOI-based translator misses the abstract, the PDF attachment, and it shows the folder icon in the Chrome plugin even when I am looking at a single article page such as the example above. One translator should be able to cover all the AEA journals.


ps: The AEA site was just redesigned so it might be the case that there actually is a translator but it's broken. I don't think that is the case though. Tried to check the translator errors page etc.
  • You are right. There is the translator for AEA journals from February 2016. It seems, that this has to be updated.
  • A translator fix is now up. Your version of Zotero will automatically update within 24hs, or you can update manually using the "Update Now" button in the "General" tab of the Zotero preferences. If you're using Standalone, restart Zotero and your browser after updating. Any further problems let us know & thanks for reporting.
