The Journal of Nietzsche Studies 34 (2007) 1-2

Abbreviations and Citations of Friedrich Nietzsche's Works

The same citation format is utilized throughout the journal. References to Nietzsche's texts are given in the body of the articles. References to Nietzsche's unpublished writings are standardized, whenever possible, to refer to the most accessible edition of Nietzsche's notebooks and publications, Kritische Studienausgabe (KSA), compiled under the general editorship of Giorgio Colli and Mazzino Montinari. References to the edition of letters, Sämtliche Briefe: Kritische Studienausgabe, are cited as KSAB.

Roman numerals denote the volume number of a set of collected works or standard subdivision within a single work, and Arabic numerals denote the relevant section number. In cases in which Nietzsche's prefaces are cited, the letter "P" is used followed by the relevant section number, where applicable. When a section is too long for the section number alone to be useful, the page number of the relevant translation is also provided. In the cases in which the Kritische Gesamtausgabe (KGW) and KSA are cited, references provide the volume number (and part for KGW) followed by the relevant fragment number and any relevant aphorism (e.g., KSA 10:12[1].37 refers to volume 10, fragment 12[1], aphorism 37).
