Encountering a wrinkle with preprints and datasets. From most preprint repositories, the name of the server is getting stored by Zotero’s translators as
container-title . This had seemed like a good idea (ala Journal titles). However, I am now seeing that some preprints and many datasets import with
container-title used to indicate the collection or larger body of works the item belongs to (e.g., doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR35531.v3).
Conceptually, I think the preprint/data repository makes good conceptual sense as either
publisher rather than
container-title (this is, for example, how the OSF repositories export in their metadata [as
publisher ], and CrossRef’s posted content type uses “group-id”, which would fit well with
publisher ; ICPSR stores its name in
publisher ). Most citation styles print
publisher , so it seems like this would work well without many changes to existing styles.
Could we come to a consensus as to where these best belong?
