Many of the books I use are parts of series.
biblatex gives you more fields to add bibliographic information to than BibTeX does, but it has no fields appropriate for the editor of a series. If I use the
EDITOR field, the bibliography will (by default) print
edited by, which doesn't give the right impression of what the role of the series editor is.
I'm wondering if there is any easy way to add a new field
SERIESEDITOR, which will make
biblatex by default print its content preceded by
Series edited by or make sure that whatever is in
SERIESEDITOR gets printed directly after the name of the series, such that is says something like
[Name of series], edited by [series editor]. In other words, is there any way I can do this in the preamble of my document, without having to venture into writing new bibliography styles?
biblatex.cfgand then using
cversions of same? (Maybe this wasn't available when this was asked?)
:)I know nothing about
biblatex.cfg, plus I'm skeptical of messing with the internal files of
*.cfgdoes. (It does some other things which might count as messing with the internals, but not this, I don't think.)
