Bibliographies make high demands on the editing process. References to monographs and articles in magazines or conference proceedings are committed to certain conventions with respect to italicization and the use of quotation marks. Especially in volumes in which each author is responsible for the bibliography of his own article, the way of making references may vary significantly. A solid, consistent bibliography can best be composed by collecting and administering all the data in a database. We are experienced in developing databases for bibliographical information. By using relational databases, we can minimize duplication of entries: the risk of different references to the same source is thus prevented. An example of such a database was implemented with the Analecta Husserliana project. Besides the bibliography itself, we can also make references in the footnotes consistent using our ACE-system.
