Style Request: the journal Bioethics

Hi there,

I tried and failed repeatedly to create a citation style that accommodates the formatting for the journal Bioethics.

EndNote has a version of the citation style, but it comes out as .ens not .csl (see EndNote's formatting: ).

Zotero has a few citation styles called Bioethics or Bioethics UPdate. Unfortunately, they are not accurate. For example, they do not use footnotes, which the journal requires.

Can someone help me create this citation style for Zotero? It's a modified version APA. Here are some examples from their webpage (see:

NB: In all book/journal article/internet reference/newspaper articles, initials of the first word, words after a colon and proper nouns should be capitalised.

For references with up to 7 authors, please list all authors (use '&' before final author name). If there are 8 or more, list the first 6 and then ‘…’ followed by the final author (no ‘&’).

If anyone can help, I would be so grateful!
