I currently use org-ref and helm-bibtex to manage my database of academic sources, with one notes file per source. A lot of my sources are books. So note typically grow over time, as I add multiple headers (each pertaining to a chapter or topic/note taken from that source).

But now I want to produce a citation that references the page numbers where I captured that note...

What is the recommended way to handle this? Are you breaking notes into individual files, each with their own @inbook citation? And suppose you are capturing a section (not necessarily a chapter title). Are you still using @inbook?

Thanks!

Generally speaking, referencing page numbers and sections of a cited
source is not handled by dedicated citations, but rather by
annotations on the containing citation (book etc.).

So in the pandoc syntax, for example, [@book, p23].

I do the same with notes, and just included the specific citation with
the note if I need to maintain the specific source page.

In org-ref you also handle this by annotations of the cite links, e.g.
[[cite:book-key][p23]] and then bibtex or biblatex does the formatting.

Hi Bruce/John,

Thanks for getting back to me. So I guess your notes file would look something like this?


#+TITLE: Bradley, J. (1973): Essential Mathematics For Economists

* Dynamic models: the consumption function
[[cite:bradley1973es][p164]]

* Changes in Capital Stock
[[cite:bradley1973es][p188]]

* The Accelerator-Multiplier Model
[[cite:bradley1973es][p200]]


So when when it comes time to author your paper, if you run org-store-link on any of these, the description gets stripped off the link, so that only cite:bradley1973es is stored (which obviously defeats the purpose). And if you copy the link over by hand, it maps back to the document bradley197es.org <http://bradley197es.org/> (not the actual note).

Am I missing anything?

Adam

It seems like some ideas are getting mixed up in your description. A cite
link in org-ref is related to a bibtex entry in a bibtex file, not to an
org heading in an org-file. In other words in your example, I would expecta
bibtex entry with the key bradley1973es to exist in one of the default
bibliography files you use (or in the one you define in a bibliography
link). The notes are just for your purposes.

the headings/links in your notes file will not show up in any completion
backend in org-ref for citation selection, as only the bibtex entries are
used to construct those.

 If you are looking for a way to select one of those headings from your
notes, and then insert the appropriate link, you would have to use
something different than org-ref. there is not presently a way to map an
annotated cite link to the specific note. I am not even sure you can write
a function that does that, as the functions only take a key for looking up
the note file, and not the description too. It certainly is possible to
write a new function that would work on the link at point to do that, and
to call it interactively, or add it as an action though. You would still
get the key to open the note file, and then use the link description if it
exists to somehow search forward for the relevant heading or text, failing
gracefully if you, for example, make a cite to a page you did not make a
note on.

When it comes time to authoring a paper, I think the workflow is you would
have to open the notes you made, find the section you want to use in your
paper, and copy the link you put in your notes to your new document. There
are some variations you might consider, but none of them would really be
integrated into the org-ref completion mechanisms that are generated from
the bibtex entries.

For example you  might store the link or parts in a property like this:

* The Accelerator-Multiplier Model
  :PROPERTIES:
  :key:      bradley1973es
  :page:     p200
  :cite: [[cite:bradley1973es][p200]]
  :END:


and then write a small function you use interactively to copy it, e.g.

#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
(defun get-link ()
  (interactive)
  (kill-new (org-entry-get (point) "cite")))
#+END_SRC

and you might bind that to a key if you use it a lot. Alternatively you
might put the key in file-level property, and only store the page, and use
property inheritance, to build the link. There are a lot of options to
choose from. But, simply copying and pasting a link might also be the
simplest.

It might be possible to use the org-store/insert-link machinery for this
too, but I have found that to be trickier than I thought it should be in
the past.

Thanks John!

I think you have just given me my next homework assignment for "Adam's list of things to noodle around with in eLisp" :)
