Entry preview - biblatex fields (journaltitle)


(Etienne) #1

Hi all,

I would like to use another entry preview than the default, for example, the American Political Science Association style. Although, I tried others with the same result. However, it never shows the field ‘journaltitle’, but only grabs ‘journal’ from my database. The journal field is empty as I follow the biblatex convention. Is there something I can do about it?

I also looked at the style file but I do not understand how I would make that change. Any help is appreciated.

Please let me also use this opportunity (my first post in this forum) to thank all the developers and contributors for their great work. I’ve been using JabRef for maybe 9 years and it has become better and better. It has become such a wonderful tool easily rivaling commercial solutions!

Thank you!

Thanks for your kind words! There are many was to contribute to JabRef , even if you’re not a programmer.

it seems like the CSL styles do not take into account the fields for biblatex. So the easiest workaround would be to fill both fields. Normally the field should be treated as alias to the bibtex journal field internally, but I will look into is.
