[Limdep Nlogit List] Odds ratios

I estimated a (bivariate) generalized logistic model. I am too 
obsessed with marginal effects on marginal and conditional 
probabilities, but a nutrition journal prefers odds ratios.

Specifically, I reported the marginal effects of each variable on the 
following marginal and conditional probabilities:


Personally, I might differentiate (and differencing, for discrete 
variables) what I know to be the odds ratios

   Pr(d1=1) / [1-Pr(d1=1)]
   Pr(d2=1|d1=1) / [1 - Pr(d2=1|d1=1)]

BUT, any reference to suggest?
