Question regarding csl/bibtex

Jan 27, 2016 at 10:37 PM
I have a bibtex entry for a wikipedia article:
  title = {EASY (Erstverteilung der Asylbegehrenden)},
  copyright = {Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License},
  abstract = {EASY (kurz für: Erstverteilung der Asylbegehrenden) ist eine vom Bundesamt für Migration und Flüchtlinge (BAMF) betriebene IT-Anwendung, mit deren Hilfe in Deutschland die Erstverteilung von Asylbewerbern auf die einzelnen Bundesländer erfolgt. „Unbegleitete Minderjährige“ werden nicht mit EASY verteilt. Das System dient auch zur Zählung der Asylbegehrenden.},
  language = {de},
  timestamp = {2016-01-27T22:25:29Z},
  urldate = {2016-01-27},
  journal = {Wikipedia},
  month = jan,
  year = {2016},
  note = {Page Version ID: 150412400},
This is what Zotero generates. When I try to cite it with [vgl. @wiki:2016], I get following output: (vgl. 2016, O A 2016).

Any idea how to fix this?

Strange. Perhaps add an author field?

Yes, that's most probably what bibtex(?) or the cls parser are missing but the problem is also how this reference is displayed in the references. Normaly there should be time of access etc. Guess I'll just try all the things. This just used to work and I'm just not sure where the problem with citing websites which don't have an author is.

Also, the whole bibliography styles issue is not ideal -- ideally there would be just a few standard styles that everyone would work on to improve (numeric & natural; perhaps in a shortened and long form). Now everyone has slightly different styles but then most styles get out-of-date: this is what causes some styles to not render, say url's, or websites without author well. I am guessing the CSL you use has no good definition for the misc entries -- can you remind me what style you use again? I'll take a look if that is it.

Zotero does the following using "American Psychological Association 6th edition":

German output
EASY (Erstverteilung der Asylbegehrenden). (2016, Januar 19). In Wikipedia. Abgerufen von
English output:
EASY (Erstverteilung der Asylbegehrenden). (2016, January 19). In Wikipedia. Retrieved from
I'm currently using the american-sociological-association csl style which produces in the references:
O A. 2016. „EASY (Erstverteilung Der Asylbegehrenden)”. Wikipedia. Abgerufen 27. Januar 2016
and (vgl. 2016, O A 2016) in my text citing it which is a bit misunderstanding imho.

Great -- now I remember :-) Thanks!
btw. just uploaded version 1.0.0.rc4 which includes some of the improvements we discussed last week like the 'floating end period' etc.

Great! I was using a repository checkout with these changes for quite a while already ;) Works great!
