I'm super confused with BibTeX by now. I am using pandoc-citeproc to generate my PDFs from Markdown and everything works fine, except that the note field doesn't show up. I want to keep using pandoc-citeproc's CMS style, since it even supports origdate which I need. But I also need it to show the note field. I guess I will have to create a custom CSL file for that? So I need to create a modified chicago-author-date.csl I guess, but I don't know how to add the note field at all.

  • Can you come up with something illustrating your problem, like a MWE? I'm not entirely sure how a Pandoc MWE would look like, but I still think it could help us investigate the problem. I have re-tagged your question since it isn't about the LaTeX package biblatex, but Pandoc's citation handling.

  • Thanks for your help. I got an answer on GitHub and figured it out. See own answer. The documentation for GLS and pandoc-citeproc is really confusing sadly. Still not sure how BibTeX fields are translated to CLS variables

I got a hint on github and figured it out. Simply add <text variable="note" prefix=". "/> right after <text macro="access" prefix=". "/>. in your own copy of the CLS file and use it with the cls: your-styles.cls
