Best workflow for dealing with cities when using multiple citation styles?

Chicago, APA, and MLA have different standards for dealing with publisher city information - always/sometimes include a state abbreviation for US cities, include/don't include country information for major non-US cities, etc.

Has anyone developed a method for dealing with this in an automated way? Ideally I want to avoid having to manually edit the reference list when changing a draft from one citation style to another.
  • In my experience, publishers don’t really care if you give too much information. I recommend just using City, ST, US or City, Country for everything.
  • I'm asking based on an editor's comment, actually.
  • CSL cannot modify the contents of the place field in any way, so there isn't a way to do this other than the edit the items or edit the bibliography manually as a step just before submission.
