How to make different rules for the year component in Books and Journals ?

Maria K. shared this question 11 months ago

Hi! According to my publisher's requirements, the years of books have to be entered in the bibliography without brackets, e. g. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1968, while they should be given in brackets together with the number of the issue, e. g. Current Anthropology (2015.5): 16-34. When I set the rules for books without brackets, the rules for journals are automatically changed in the same way. If I add brackets to the journals, they also appear in books. I would be extremely grateful for any hint how to deal with it!

Best regards, Maria
