Hello Tim,

It does seem like a discrepancy between the meaning of terms as used in the BibTeX and as used on the specs. The spec editors are not editors in the normal BibTeX sense of independent checkers, but are usually the primary authors.

I guess that the editors should be included in the author list, either just in the BibTeX or both the BibTeX and the specs.

Looking at the OWL 2 Primer as an example, I see that there are no authors listed on the spec, only editors, and that these editors are listed in the "author" field of the BibTeX you linked to, with no "editor" given. Maybe that's the way we should do it too: only editors for the specs, and only authors for the BibTeX?

Subject: bibtex for prov documents?


A colleague asked me how to cite the PROV documents and prefers to use bibtex.

So I started


in case any bibtex gurus know how to better model the documents.

I added the link to it from http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/wiki/OutreachInformation#Citing_PROV

One question I had was how to merge the editor, author, and contributor lists.

While looking for the Right Way to model the documents in bibtex, I came across:

http://webcapita.com/w3cbib/by-year seems to list bibtex for many W3C recommendations before 2009 and is discussed at http://www.troeger.eu/cms/?p=76

Too bad it wasn't kept up to date, or that the service isn't available…
