SBL Style Updates for Zotero

This month, a couple significant updates have come through the pipe for Zotero’s SBL style. First, footnoted citations containing parentheses will, if placed within parentheses themselves in the citation editor, now automatically change the inner parentheses to square brackets in compliance with the SBL handbook’s deference to Chicago Manual of Style (e.g., 15th ed., §6.102) on this point. Second, the style now more accurately handles citations of titled sections within works.

To download the most recent version of Zotero’s SBL style, go to the style repository, click “Theology,” and find “Society of Biblical Literature (Full Note).”
