Better citations for articles & chapters from multi-author works
Implement proper citations for journal articles, encyclopedia articles, and chapters from multi-author works when copying/pasting text. Currently Logos does a poor job of this, not citing the author of the article or chapter in question but only the editor of the entire work. For journals and encyclopedias the general editor should be left out and only the article author cited. For edited books, both the chapter author and the editor are normally cited. But see individual citation formats for the rules here. See such threads as http://community.logos.com/forums/t/11543.aspx and http://community.logos.com/forums/t/29583.aspx
Logos supports generating per-article citations for resources that are tagged with that information. If there are specific resources that are missing this tagging, please post in the forums to help us set the priority of resources that need to be updated.
A further suggestion which would greatly increase logos functionality for us academic users would be to have two copy functions in a book's information pane. Currently, there is only one option to copy the bibliographic format, adding another option to copy a notes/footnote version of the source's information would be wonderful.

Also, for public domain works, the citation shows only date of the Logos publication. Please show (at least) the date the book was originally published.

This is a HUGE Feature for me. I'm a Seminary student and I live and die by the journals for Academic Papers. Its almost not worth it to have to go and refind all the info on an article just to cite in a paper. (I am using the Theological Journals).

Yes... I agree that this would be a great improvement to the software. One has to put forth a tremendous effort of investigative research to hunt down all the information needed to make a proper citation.

This is a feature which would greatly improve Logos for academic use.
