Citing the European Convention on Human Rights
Hi there, I am trying to come up with the closer item type for the European Convention on Human Rights, and the only thing I can think of is under Statute. Still, I wanted an additional opinion/suggestion. Thank you!
What I do is that I save treaties, UN resolutions and the like in Zotero and append a note with the proper Bluebook citation. When I need to cite it I just cut and paste it into my doc's footnotes. It won't appear in the bibliography/references cited list, but that is consistent with Chicago's instructions for legal material.
If the citation style is written to accommodate treaties (e.g., APA style is), this will be picked up and cited correctly. If it doesn't look right for the style you are using, say what the style is and give an example of what it shows/what it should be here.
I am between APA and OSCOLA. If you can show me I would really appreciate your help. Thank you.
Related to this, is there a way to exclude specific reference types from the bibliography? According to Chicago (which does not seem to handle "treaty" as a type anyway, I think), treaties and the like should be handled using Bluebook style as footnotes and not be in the references cited list.
