CSL style-sheets can be easily customized to render, for example, Chinese citations like these:


from the bibtex entries below:

  langid = {pinyin},
  location = {{台北}},
  title = {易傳與道家思想},
  isbn = {978-957-05-0994-6},
  pagetotal = {382},
  publisher = {{臺灣商務印書館}},
  date = {1994},
  author = {陳鼓應},
  eprinttype = {googlebooks}

  location = {{臺北}},
  title = {陰陽五行及其有關文獻的研究},
  booktitle = {中國人性論史(先秦篇)},
  publisher = {{商務}},
  date = {1969},
  pages = {509-587},
  author = {{徐復觀}}

Org-ref seems to have its own style-sheets, which render citations like so:

  1. References
  • 徐復觀, (). 陰陽五行及其有關文獻的研究. In (Eds.), 中國人性論史(先秦篇) (pp. 509–587). : 商務.
  1. Formatted Citations

徐復觀, , 陰陽五行及其有關文獻的研究, In (Eds.), 中國人性論史(先秦篇) (pp. 509–587) (). : 商務.

I am aware that when converting to pdfs, latex style-sheets can also be used by setting:

#+LaTeX_HEADER: \usepackage{natbib} 
#+LaTeX_HEADER: \documentclass[10pt,journal]{IEEEtran}
#+bibliographystyle: natbib

But these are super difficult to hack and re-code to fit the Chinese academic format.

My question is, given the need for Chinese academic citations, which is the best way forward to render these citations in org-mode?

Is there a native way to customize citation styles in Emacs and/or Org?
