I am writing an ebook and I'm referring to several books many times. I could use the regular notes section and cite the book 20 times per chapter, but it's cumbersome.
What's the smartest way to deal with those repetitive references in an ebook? (I don't know which format I'll choose: it could be the Kindle format or the epub.)
One (theoretical) way would be to write a single time the ref of one of my book (ex: James, H. (1937). Ambassadors. New York, NY: Scribner.), store it in a variable. When the reader clicks on the reference, the footnote link will retrieve the variable and the page number (of the specific reference). But it creates a bigger problem: it doesn't seem to be compatible with the notes section (after each chapter). (This kind of ref will probably link to a tool-tip. And in any case I'm not sure it will work with the main ebook reader).
