disambiguation-rule="primary-name" and possible citeproc-js issue
This came up on https://github.com/jgm/pandoc-citeproc/issues/38:
Authors “Ann Doe / Ben Doe / Ron Roe” are rendered as follows in-text with chicago-author-date.csl:
- “A. Doe, Doe, and Roe (2007)” with pandoc(-citeproc) – for MWE see link above
- “Doe, Doe, and Roe (2007)” with citeproc-js
Now I don’t think “A. Doe, Doe, and Roe (2007)” is correct according to CMoS 16e 15.21: There’s nothing to indicate they want name disambiguation in addition to the disambiguation of cites.
disambiguation-rule="primary-name" is replaced by
givenname-disambiguation-rule="by-cite", pandoc renders the in-text citation as “Doe, Doe, and Roe (2007)” (which I think is correct).
Is there any reason why chicago-author-date.csl has
"by-cite"? – I’d argue only the latter is in conformance with CMoS.
Does the fact that citeproc-js does not render the initial when the style has
disambiguation-rule="primary-name"reveal a possible bug?
