Style request: Journal of international Peacekeeping

edited August 23, 2019
I am in the process of writing an article for the Journal of International Peacekeeping (Publisher: Brill). Could I please call on the help of a professional in the field to develop a new style which meets Brill's requirements? This would save me from manually adapting all the footnotes.

* Online style documentation: https://brill.com/fileasset/downloads_products/Author_Instructions/JOUP.pdf

* ISSN: 1875-4112

* Overall instruction: All references should be spelt out in full at first mention; subsequent mentions of the citation should be abbreviated to Surname, ‘Chapter Title’ (or Book Title), date (only if necessary for clarification). The titles of books and journals should always be italicized and for English-language publications, the titles should be set in initial caps (All Main Words Should Start with a Capital).

* Examples:

In-text citation:

First citation: John L. Campbell and Ove K. Pedersen, ‘The Varieties of Capitalism and Hybrid Success’, Comparative Political Studies, vol. 40, no. 3, 2007, pp. 307-332. https://doi.org/10.1177/0010414006286542. [Comment: name of the journal should be in italics]

Thereafter: Campbell and Pedersen, ‘The Varieties of Capitalism and Hybrid Success’, p. [reference].

First citation: Isabela Mares, ‘Firms and the Welfare State: When, Why, and How does Social Policy Matter to Employers?’ in Peter A. Hall and David Soskice (eds.), Varieties of Capitalism. The Institutional Foundations of Comparative Advantage (New York: Oxford University Press, 2001), pp. 184-213. [Comment: name of the book should be in italics]

Thereafter: Mares, ‘Firms and the Welfare State: When, Why, and How does Social Policy Matter to Employers?’, p. [reference].

Bibliography: no information about this in style guide.

Many thanks in advance and best regards,
Hanna
  • @damnation: many thanks for sharing the instructions. I revised my request accordingly. Please let me know if this is sufficient.
  • Great, that all works.
    As I don't have access to the journal and you didn´t provide a link to a freely-available publication can you either upload a .pdf somewhere or at least double check for me that the articles do not have a bibliography and also that the style guide matches exactly the actual publications?

    For other sources, the following examples can be used:

    Case law:

    Court, Case name in italics, date decided [day, month, year], docket number, reporter, reporter volume, first page, p./pp./para.

    Reports:

    Author, title in italics, report number, date [day, month, year], p./pp./para.

    Many thanks in advance!

    Normally I don't do note styles, as they're too labour intensive and complicated for me, but you were lucky.
    Can you test this out? Right click, save as and install in Zotero (doubleclick): https://github.com/citation-style-language/styles/raw/4f95950afa5c5789ffc2dccccfb1449e415a0222/journal-of-international-peacekeeping.csl

    There will be small issues still that will pop up with testing, so let me know and I'll make the changes.

    Many thanks - this is really greatly appreciated. I went through the citations and have the following comments:


    General comment for all entries:

    If the same sources is cited in subsequent footnotes, “ibid in italics” can be used instead if the surname and the page number. If the same sources is cited, but with a reference to a different page, it should be cited as “ibid in italics, p., pp., para., paras.”.


    Specific comments:

    1) Book

    Comments: (i) the edition should be within the brackets after the year; (ii) there should be no comma after the title of the book; (iii) when a book is cited more than once, the citation should include specifically “p, pp., para., paras.” (not just the number).

    Example:

    First citation: Marc Weller, Alexia Solomou, and Jake William Rylatt (eds.), The Oxford Handbook of the Use of Force in International Law (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2015, 1st edn.), p. 376. [The title of the book is in italics]

    Thereafter: Weller, Solomou, and William Rylatt (eds.), The Oxford Handbook of the Use of Force in International Law, p. 376. [The title of the book is in italics]


    2) Chapter in edited volume

    Comment: (i) the edition should be within the brackets after the year; (ii) there should be no comma after the title of the book; (iii) when a book chapter is cited more than once, the citation should include specifically “p, pp., para., paras.” (not just the number).

    Example:

    First citation: Haidi Willmot and Ralph Mamiya, ‘Mandated to Protect: Security Council Practice on the Protection of Civilians’ in Marc Weller, Alexia Solomou, and Jake William Rylatt (eds.), The Oxford Handbook of the Use of Force in International Law (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2015, 1st edn.), p. 376. [The title of the book is in italics]

    Thereafter: Willmot and Mamiya, ‘Mandated to Protect: Security Council Practice on the Protection of Civilians’, p. 376.


    3) Journal article:

    Comments: (i) there is currently no comma between the issue number and the date; (ii) the DOI is now added in the end after a comma, but this should be after a dot; (iii) when a journal is cited more than once, the citation should include specifically “p, pp., para., paras.” (not just the number).

    Example:

    First citation: John L. Campbell and Ove K. Pedersen, ‘The Varieties of Capitalism and Hybrid Success’, Comparative Political Studies, vol. 40, no. 3, 2007, pp. 307-332. DOI: https://doi.org/10.1177/0010414006286542.

    Thereafter: Campbell and Pedersen, ‘The Varieties of Capitalism and Hybrid Success’, p. [reference].


    4) Reports:

    Comment: The requested citation does not seem to appear at all. It should appear as follows:

    First citation: Author, title in italics, report number, date [day, month, year], p./pp./para.

    Thereafter: Author, title in italics, p./pp./para.


    5) Newspaper article:

    Comment: The date is currently not included.

    First citation: Author, ‘Title’, date [day, month, year], URL, accessed [day, month, year].

    Thereafter: Author, ‘Title’.


    6) Case law:

    Comments: Case law strangely enough appears in very different formats. It should all follow the example below.

    Example:

    First citation: Court, Case name in italics, date decided [day, month, year], docket number, reporter, reporter volume, first page, p., pp., para., paras.

    Thereafter: Court, Case name in italics, p., pp., para., paras.


    7) Dictionary entry:

    Comment: the URL should come after the "date accessed' instead of before, with a comma.


    8) Blog post:

    Comment: (i) the date of the blog post should be included; (ii) the date accessed should be included.

    Example:

    First citation: First name surname, ‘Title’, Blog title in italics, date [day, month, year], URL, accessed [day, month, year].

    - Locators for subsequent citations now has the label (fixes this for all item types)

    1) books: Where do you see in the guidelines that the edition needs to be in the brackets?

    3) article-journal: added comma between issue and year
    4) reports get printed out like this:
    John S. Ahlquist and Christian Breunig, ‘Country Clustering in Comparative Political Economy’, MPIfG Discussion Paper, (Cologne: Max-Planck Institute for the Study of Societies, 2009).
    5)newspaper: added issue date

    8) blog: Where are you getting this from? I don't see anything about it in the guidelines. I´ve added the accessed date for now for websources (websites and blogs)

  • Thank you very much for the changes you made! Please find some responses below, as well as a repetition of a number of comments that I made above that have not yet been implemented so it seems.


    1) books: Where do you see in the guidelines that the edition needs to be in the brackets?

    HannaKUL: This is indeed not in the guidelines. The guidelines are extremely limited in information so that is why I made this suggestion myself, based on other styles I use.

    Could you please also include the following comments: (i) there should be no comma after the title of the book; (ii) when a book is cited more than once, the citation should include specifically “p, pp., para., paras.” (not just the number).

    2) Chapter in edited volume

    HannaKUL comments: (i) there should be no comma after the title of the book

    --

    3) article-journal: added comma between issue and year

    HannaKUL comments: Thank you.

    Could you please also include the following comments: (i) the DOI is now added in the end after a comma, but this should be after a dot; (ii) the DOI is now referred to in small letters but should be in capitals; (iii) if a reference is made to a paragraph, “para.” is abbreviated without a dot, it should be with a dot.

    --

    4) reports get printed out like this:

    John S. Ahlquist and Christian Breunig, ‘Country Clustering in Comparative Political Economy’, MPIfG Discussion Paper, (Cologne: Max-Planck Institute for the Study of Societies, 2009).

    HannaKUL comments: (i) Could you please add the report number and the full date (including day and month)?; (ii) if a reference is made to a paragraph, “para.” is abbreviated without a dot, it should be with a dot.

    --

    5)newspaper: added issue date

    HannaKUL: The date of the article itself (so not the date of access) is not included. Could you please add this?

    Example:

    First citation: Author, ‘Title’, date [day, month, year], URL, accessed [day, month, year].

    Thereafter: Author, ‘Title’.

    --

    6) Case law:

    HannaKUL comment: Case law still appears in very different formats. It should all follow the example below.

    Example:

    First citation: Court, Case name in italics, date decided [day, month, year], docket number, reporter, reporter volume, first page, p., pp., para., paras.

    Thereafter: Court, Case name in italics, p., pp., para., paras.

    --

    8) blog: Where are you getting this from? I don't see anything about it in the guidelines. I´ve added the accessed date for now for websources (websites and blogs)

    HannaKUL: This is indeed not in the guidelines. The guidelines are extremely limited in information so that is why I made this suggestion myself, based on other styles I use.

    Furthermore, could you please include the date of the blog post itself as well?

    Example:

    First citation: First name surname, ‘Title’, Blog title in italics, date [day, month, year], URL, accessed [day, month, year].

    --

    General comment HannaKUL:

    If the same sources is cited in subsequent footnotes, “ibid in italics” should be used instead if the surname and the page number. If the same sources is cited, but with a reference to a different page, it should be cited as “ibid in italics, p., pp., para., paras.”.
