Hello Simon (and others),
In this style:
<title>American Psychological Association</title> <id>http://www.zotero.org/styles/apa</id>
you use this macro for authors:
which is subsequently called by:
<text macro="author" suffix="."/>
which (in my citeproc-py implementation) produces output like this:
Grutters, M., van Raaphorst, W., & Helder, W… (2001). Total
hydrolysable amino acid mineralisation in sediments across the
northeastern Atlantic continental slope (Goban Spur). Deep-Sea Research I, 48. , 811–832.
My concern is the double points after the last author name and before
the year. I doubt that this is what the style wants, right? On the
other hand, the macro with suffix set to “.” seems reasonable, as the
last characters of the author macro could also be a label with
parentheses. A label won’t get printed for authors and therefore the
last character becomes a point from the initials of the last author.
Is this a flaw in CSL, the style, or should I just find and replace
all double points with a single one? Or should a suffix (or prefix)
not get added if it is already part of the text?
How does Zotero handle this?
