Whoops, sorry!  Like so:

 

<part>

   <detail type="volume"><number>12</number></detail>

   <detail type="issue"><number>5</number></detail>

   <extent unit="pages"><start>23</start><end>30</end></extent>

   <extent unit="pages"><start>61</start><end>66</end></extent>

</part>

You could also do it this way:

 

    <part type="pages">

        <detail>
           
<number>23-30</number>
           
<number>61-66</number>
       
</detail>
   
</part>

 

Or, since extent is repeatable, you could do it this way:

 

        <extent unit="pages">
           
<start>23</start>
           
<end>30</end>
       
</extent>
       
<extent unit="pages">
           
<start>61</start>
           
<end>66</end>
       
</extent>

 

But again, whether Zotero will interpret this correctly I have no idea. 

 

So, being curious, I went hunting, and it turns out that there is a Zotero/MODS mapping example out there (from this page https://www.zotero.org/support/kb/field_mappings click on “Field mappings for most Zotero export types are listed here” which takes you to https://github.com/aurimasv/zotero-import-export-formats then click on “MODS.xml”).  Within the MODS.xml file, each <mods>….</mods> chunk is an example of how to do a different type of source.  If you look at the section for journal articles (<genre authority="local">journalArticle</genre>) the example it gives is this:

 

<part>

   <detail type="volume"><number>Volume</number></detail>

   <detail type="issue"><number>Issue</number></detail>

   <extent unit="pages"><start>Pages</start><end>Pages</end></extent>

</part>

 

This suggests to me that simply repeating the <extent> might be the right way to do it, for example:

 

<part>

   <detail type="volume"><number>12</number></detail>

   <detail type="issue"><number>5</number></detail>

   <extent unit="pages"><start>23-30</start><end>Pages</end></extent>

   <extent unit="pages"><start>61-66</start><end>Pages</end></extent>

</part>

Instead of <start> and <end> (which assumes a single start point and a single end point, since only one of each is permissible), I think <list> is a better semantic match for this:

 

https://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/userguide/part.html#list

 

<extent unit=”pages”>

   <list>22–27, 91–92</list>

</extent>

 

Of course, whether Zotero interprets that correctly is a different question altogether.  I’d

Greetings,

 

what is the MODS XML code supposed to be for an article with split pagination? Say the article is pages 23-30, and 61-66. 

 

We are trying to make sure the export for Zotero is correct and we can't find any exemplars. 

for more details see comments here: https://forums.zotero.org/discussion/comment/327068

 

all the best,
