In the screenshot below the concordance tool says there are three references to E. Ben Zvi's "The Chronicler as Historian". In fact, there is only one reference to that, the other two references listed are to other articles in the same book.

You can see from the screenshot that this isn't a resource error, as when you hover over the other articles, they give the correct bibliographic information.

A second bug is also apparent, and that's the mixing of citation styles. You can see that one article has the author as "Ben Zvi, E.", whilst the other has "E. Ben Zvi".

I've created cases for both the article grouping, and the doubly-listed author.

So, the good news is the same as the bad news: Bibliogaphic citation data isn't invisible any more. We've been marking up citations in bibliographies for several years, and the Concordance is the first tool to really expose all of that data in bulk. As such, we should expect it to be messy -- eg, "last, first" versus "first, last" is clearly an editorial issue in many resources.

We will probably choose to fix the data rather than try to code around it, which will take longer to accomplish (which may be frustrating), but will be better in the long run. We have assigned some people to work on data clean up but in the meantime, I still think this feature is better than nothing.

Therefore a donut is better than heaven. Stick out tongue

But I agree it is better to fix the data.

Now that's a sill-ee-gism

Love it! I'm going to share this with our professor of Logic... :)

It's what got me fascinated with logic (and language) at an early age.
