Hi. I’m wondering what approaches others have taken with a source that just doesn’t fit into any format. For example, I’m trying to put an academic journal (called “Concilium”) in the right format. Apparently I’m not the first to struggle with this journal because I found this explanation on a university website, which I’ve copy-and-pasted below:
A Case of Difficult Journal Citation: How to Cite Concilium
Concilium is a journal that is published four times a year in numerous languages and at numerous places of publication. It has individual issue titles and editors. It does not have volume numbers, only issue numbers 1–4 in a given year.
In this case, it is necessary to use the year as a volume number (on this, see CMS 15.225, second example). It is also necessary to give the place of publication, as the journal is published at numerous locations. Finally, the title of an individual issue and its editors should be listed.
E.g., Elizondo, Felisa. “Violence Against Women: Strategies of Resistance and Sources of Healing in Christianity.” In Violence Against Women. Ed. Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza and M. Shawn Copeland. Concilium 1994, no. 1. Maryknoll, NY: Orbis, 1994, 99–108.
So, while I completely understand how the final bibliographical reference should look, I have no idea how to input this into a new reference. “Journal Article” seems like the obvious choice but there are problems there, such as not having a box for editors. Do I just learn how to customize “Journal Article” to meet these issues or is there a better way?
