If one is citing a g'mara in a scholarly article, what is the proper publication information to use, including title, etc.? I can't seem to find reliable examples in either English or Hebrew.
This question extends (and becomes even less clear to me) when it comes to citing m'farshim whose comments appear in the back of the same volume.
The "editor" of the particular volume is almost completely irrelevant, considering how minimally one would alter the standard page, including text, format, notation, etc. Authorship is a bit fishy in terms of accurately pinning down an individual whose naming would truly portray their contribution to the volume in question. But it doesn't seem right or correct to skip all of the (publishing, printing, editing) middlemen and only name the original author because sometimes variation does occur and it could be significant and irresponsible to leave that information out.
