Some of the science journals (Zootaxa) I am hoping to submit articles to, advise that the range of pages used in a reference should be separated by en dash ’ – ’ and not the hyphen.
In the latest version, when I paste the en dash between the pages the warning triangle appears with the popup message “should contain a valid page range”. I am fairly certain in the jabref v2 & 3 series (and possibly, the earliest v4 series), the en dash could be used.
If I can only use the hyphen for the page range, I will have to edit every single reference once inserted in to my manuscript, which for obvious reasons, I would rather not have to do.
Can you set up the pages field to accept either the hypen (minus) ’ - ’ or the en dash ’ – '?
Thank you for your time considering this request
with best wishes
