Description brunodu 2004-10-05 11:39:15 UTC
So far the bibliographic database uses one table. I think it would be *very*
usefull to have three tables instead (author, journal, references, I think this
is it, but I may spend some time on the DB design if needed).

This would bring the following functionnalities:
-allways the same spelling for one author, or one journal.

-possibility of uses different "writing" of a journal name (or author name) for
different bibliographic templates. 
Exemple: I need to use once "IEEE-UFFC" as the name of the journal, next time
"IEEE Ultra. Ferr. Freq. Contr.". With a separate table I won't be obliged to
change several hundreds of references. Even Better, the different writting could
be part of the projection of the table journal into the Index Bibliography in my
wordprocessor document.

-not typing hundreds of time the same journal name (or authors).

	Thank you for your interest and comments. The OpenOffice Bibliographic 
project at has plans to greatly improve 
the bibliographic database.  
A proposal to add a separate Author list was one of my first suggestions (see 
issue 4294)However as you suggest, other lists are required such as Journals 
and their abbreviated titles. The project would welcome your assistance with 
database design. 
I will set this issue as a duplicate to the head Bibliographic project issue, 
as database re-development is a issue already documented in the project 
Please contact me or the bibliographic project mail list if you would like to 
become involved.
