This is the "Publication" template. We may want to split articles, books, periodicals, and secondary sources into different categories with different templates; please put suggestions on the discussion page here.

  • For Countries, generally use the ISO 3166-1 standard two-letter abbreviations in caps, e.g. GB, US, DE, FR, IT, RU, ZA, and NL. (as wikipedia does). For unusual cases not listed there, like the earlier principalities of Germany and Italy (e.g., Bavaria), use a term or abbreviation that makes sense and we'll figure it out. List multiple countries if that makes sense, and put semicolons between the abbreviations in a list.
  • For Languages, use the w:ISO_639-1 ISO_639-1 standard two-letter abbreviations as Wikipedia does, in lower case, e.g. en, fr, de, nl. Here's a list of the abbreviations. If that list is insufficient, use something else and we'll figure it out later. List multiple languages, if that makes sense, and put semicolons between the abbreviations in a list.
  • For names of pages about publication, LTA suggests these formats for the publication info coming from Brockett pubs. Page title is "Author last name, year, and a suffix letter a/b/c/etc to make them distinct". If no author is known page title is "publication abbr, year, title". Publication Abbr will be AJ for Aeronautical Journal.
  • Econterms can imagine an alternative in which some publications especially those without clear author info are Publication #xyz where the number comes from the indexes created for separating them out among Brockett entries.
