Cover sheet citation for book chapter does not meet specs

Description

On the cover sheet for book chapter:

1. The period after the final chapter author (Garlick; see attached) is creating double punctuation. There should only be a period if the final element of the final name is an initial, or if there is no parenthetical date.

2. Book editors should be separated by commas, not semi-colons

3. Book editors should be in direct order, i.e. Firstname Lastname, Firstname2 Lastname2 (Eds.)

Fixed 1. and 2. For 3., the format of book editors' name comes directly from user's entry. Therefore it is the instruction on the RUFD input form that is incorrect. This needs to be fixed. -YY

"Give all editors, separating names with semi-colons; for example: Caruther, Abigail C.; O'Neil, James" is the instruction for Book Editor(s).
Should I change to separating names with commas, Firstname Lastname, Firstname2 Lastname2?

This requires more consideration. The citation should resemble an APA citation style, but neither the deposit form instruction nor the spec resembles APA (in that the names are given in their full form). For authors under personal name, we almost have to use full form of name for various complicated reasons (NetID, etc.). However for editors, since they're not system supplied, we have more options. Rhonda, if we change the instruction on the deposit form to say:

(Give all editors, separating names with semi-colons; for example: Caruther, A.C.; O'Neil, J.)

some people would get it right, and we could edit in WMS for the rest. This would make the citation a little more APA-ish, which might be better. Would that be fine with you?

If this is OK with jjotto, it is ok with me.

Jane and I wrote comment #4 together. I will ask Jie to make the change on the form.

Jie,

Please change the instruction for Book Editor(s)
FROM: (Give all editors, separating names with semi-colons; for example: Caruther, Abigail C.; O'Neil, James)

TO: (Give all editors, separating names with semi-colons; for example: Caruther, A.C.; O'Neil, J.)

Thanks,
Kalaivani

Jie,

Thanks for making the changes. It needs one more tweaking. Please note that we are asking the users to enter the first initial followed by a period.

This is what is there:
(Give all editors, separating names with semi-colons; for example: Caruther, Abigail C.; O'Neil, James)
O'Neil, James should be changed to O'Neil, J.

It should be:

(Give all editors, separating names with semi-colons; for example: Caruther, A.C.; O'Neil, J.)

You can just copy and paste this line.

Jie,

Needs small tweaking. Would it be easier for you to just copy and paste this line?
(Give all editors, separating names with semi-colons; for example: Caruther, A.C.; O'Neil, J.)

NOTE: Caruther, Abigail C. should be: Caruther, A.C.
