Hey there - where do you post corrections - 

One that has been bugging me for months is:
Stanley Porter's Idioms of the Greek New Testament (2nd Edition - 1994). 

When this is copy pasted it is sourced incorrectly as:

 Stanley E. Porter, Idioms of the Greek New Testament (Sheffield: JSOT, 1999), 4.

I have seen this in academic journals and printed books - uh oh!

Not sure who fixes this but there ya go

Scott,

Welcome.

I am not sure what is wrong.

If you open a book in Logos and then open the panel menu (the three vertical dots at the right), go to Information.

Or, with book in focus pres Ctrl Shift I.

Under CITATION there are 15 different citation layouts.

The 7th is Christian Writers' Manual of Style.

This gives .... Stanley E. Porter, Idioms of the Greek New Testament. (Sheffield: JSOT, 1999).

I believe the issue Scott is alluding to is that the second edition came out in 1994, whereas it was just reprinted in 1999.

My understanding of citation rules is that the publication date should be cited, not the latest reprint.

Scott - I suggest you right-click on the Second edition with corrections 1994 text on the title page, ensure that is selected on the left of the context menu and scroll down to the bottom right of the menu. That should allow you to report typo where you can explain the issue.

This gets fed back into the relevant team at Faithlife.
