  • Great news! Just tested it, and it looks perfect now. Here is the exact output before/after the update: Before: Alexandros Tsadiras, ‘The Ombudsman’, EU Administrative Law (2nd edn, OUP 2012) 754. After: Alexandros Tsadiras, ‘The Ombudsman’ in Pa…
  • (Before I begin, let me thank you adamsmith for your latest post. I did not realize that the item type was the culpit.) I came across a peculiar form of book chapter today, namely a chapter by one author in what is (apart from that chapter) a monog…
  • Today I noticed that conference papers are not rendered correctly in OSCOLA. At present I get the following when using the word plugin or "copy to clipboard" function on a item with all necessary metadata: Motoyo Kamiya, ‘A Study of Formal Relations…
  • I don't have a concrete example of a book at hand now (away from the office), but as you can see the OUP house style allows for both US and UK styles when writing, with their respective quotation mark standards: https://global.oup.com/academic/autho…
  • @fbennett: The thing is that OSCOLA is strictly a referencing style. See the style guide, which is very meager, which has nothing to say about the style of quotation marks or anything else outside the references themselves: https://www.law.ox.ac.uk/…
  • Thanks for the quick and useful clarification! I only have one thing to add, to help others: If we are first to make custom alterations to the style, another way of achieving this would be to omit the final period. If so, it would be possible to ad…
  • Of course, if Juris-M style case support (including multiple jurisdictions) is implemented, the primary case would be moot. And I see the point of keeping things simple on the word processor plugin change. I even agree that ibid is not too problemat…
  • For case citations two things are missing: First, proper citation formats (MLZ/Juris-M seems to have that working, though, but I prefer to use the official client). Second, the need for multiple bibliographies - one for each category of sources (cas…
  • I don't think you quite got my point. Look very closely at the example I provided and read the text afterwords carefully. To clarify even more, here is a screenshot showing a similar example (grey shading = Zotero field), with the edit citation win…
  • That's what I thought. But maybe it will be rectified in Zotero's core some time. Perhaps it should be added to GitHub as an enhancement request? Your suggested solution would work. I might just do that as part of the finalization process (but that…
  • I just came across another quirk in the OSCOLA style (for regular Zotero, not MLZ), specifically how it refers back to previous footnotes in Libreoffice. This works very well for the normal case where the footnote numbers run continously throughou…
  • Adamsmith: I have two suggested enhancements for OSCOLA when it comes to citation of secondary sources. Hope you have time to take a look at them - would love to help out myself, but the style has become so complex that I can't understand most of th…
  • I have brought this up as a feature request for Libreoffice, and had it accepted. If you wish to see this feature implemented in Libreoffice, please help out here: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=80786 Also, it was suggested as a worka…
  • A minor bug: ibid is capitalized, which according to OSCOLA 4th ed it should not. Example of present behavior (footnote): "Ibid 492 and 507–512."
  • Yes, this is what I was referring to. I though it might be possible to drop the URL if the # Pages field in Zotero for a book was populated in order to tackle this problem. Anyway, as a workaround I'll just move the URL to the "extras" field for th…
  • 1) Here is one example of a book that has a page range of 1-393 in the # Pages field in Zotero, but nevertheless there is still an URL added tot he citation (using square brackets instead of "
  • Any progress on fixing this bug?
  • Another bug: after clicking the "Remove Field Codes" button in Zotero, italic styling of e.g. book titles is removed.
  • Found what I believe is a small bug: When citing books that have a populated URL field, the OSCOLA style will include the URL and even if a pagerange is present. This is not the correct behavior. eBooks are to be cited as regular books, as long a…
  • Another thing I am unsure of is whether it is wise to include the closing period in the Zotero-generated citations. At least in one instance this will be problematic, namely when I want to use other fields in a footnote. An example footnote (square…
  • @paultroop The way to handle this is to put two separate citations in your footnote. Insert the first footnote, and the immediately after press the spacebar and type "See also" and then insert a new citation by pressing the button on the Zotero tool…
  • Saving of bibliographic information has nothing to do with styles. What has probably happened in your case is that the Oxford library catalog has changed, or that the translator for that site has a bug. If you want it fixed, I suggest you create a …
  • I found a slight error in the style when doing supra cites. The style uses too many commas. In the OSCOLA manual, the following example of a supra cite is given: "1 Robert Stevens, Torts and Rights (OUP 2007) . … 26 Stevens (n 1) 110 ." Here i…
  • I did not get it to work at first, but now it works. Seems like Zotero does not react to the "Refresh" button being pressed if no Zotero activity has taken place since the last update (e.g. if I have only added a footnote containing pure text).
  • Brilliant, didn't know of the checkbox. Thanks! One more thing: As for the note number (n X), they do not seem to be automatically updating. I have heard that this is impossible with Zotero, so I guess that is the reason. Am I right?
  • Excellent work! Two comments from my first minute of testing: 1) Why are URLs added to all articles, even though they are published in a journal? Even though I have downloaded the articles from Hein/JSTOR etc. it is customary to not cite the URL, b…

  • The citation format for ECJ cases is very simple. See these examples: https://ilrb.cf.ac.uk/citingreferences/oscola/tutorial/page07.html The ECR number = the page number in the European Court Reports. So, if there is no page number given, then drop…
  • Thanks for the tip! I see your point on "edit" bibliography, but there is an option for manually touching up individual items (the textbox bottom middle). One would therefore presume that inputing an URL in angle brackets would work - everything els…
