using "in" instead of "and" to separate authors


I don’t know the final use case, but one of our users would like to
use “in” instead of “and” in some inline citations. Like “(Smith and
Murphy)” would be “(Smith in Murphy)”.

I read:
Specifies the delimiter between the second to last and last name
of the names in a name variable. Allowed values are “text” (selects
the “and” term, e.g. “Doe, Johnson and Smith”) and “symbol” (selects
the ampersand, e.g. “Doe, Johnson & Smith”).

I’ll get more information about the use case. I wonder if some of you
have thought about it.


some citations or all citations?
For all citations, it’d be easily possible to just change the term in the
style. But for some citation we’d need a trigger of some sort that would
have to be send and understood by CSL and that’s not currently possible
(and I’d say probably not something we’d want to do?).
I imagine the use case is a “cited in” type scenario - but if we do want to
address that (and it does come up a fair amount esp. in the humanities) I
imagine we’d want something cleaner & more comprehensiveOn Fri, Nov 30, 2012 at 7:30 AM, Carles Pina <@Carles_Pina>wrote:

The use case is indirect citation. I cite Doe, who is citing (or more
commonly quoting) Smith.

So either we cover this:

  1. now, using a free text prefix
  2. we add a new feature to processors to support this


Agreed: for now, custom prefix will be a workaround. For full support, you need extra variables (if I understand correctly.
