The SBL Handbook of Style (e.g., §8.2) suggests several abbreviations that involve small capital letters. It had previously escaped my notice, but Zotero’s rich text markup will support the use of small capitals in a citation’s prefix or suffix fields. Zotero will turn text into small capitals if the text is enclosed by:

<span style=”font-variant:small-caps;”> and </span>

Or, apparently also the simpler:

<sc> and </sc>

For more information on this feature, see this forum discussion and the general list of rich text formatting options available for Zotero citations.

One thought on “Small Caps in Zotero

  1. we recommend using the span tags rather than the sc tags, though. The former are more standard html.
