# \fullcite not printing references in APA format.

I am using biblatex and biblatex-apa for formatting references in APA format. I am using \fullcite to print the full reference in APA format as I have to describe the printed reference. In my case I cannot use the \printbibliography function to print the reference. The problem using \fullcite is that it is not printing reference in APA format, it is using AND instead of &. Here is the example:

using \fullcite

Darwin, C., Ekman, P., and Prodger, P. (2002). The expression of the emo-
tions in man and animals. Oxford University Press, USA


using \printbibliography

Darwin, C., Ekman, P., & Prodger, P. (2002). The expression of the emotions
in man and animals. Oxford University Press, USA


My question is how to incorporate & instead of AND in the \fullcite function. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi, welcome to tex.sx! Although your question is not identical to this one: hanging references using \fullcite, the solution posted there solves your problem as well. – Alan Munn Mar 14 '11 at 2:22
Thanks a lot Alan! Works perfectly! – Shreyas Karnik Mar 14 '11 at 2:25
@Alan Is it possible to add a counter to the \fullcite function so that I can print the number of the reference, I know about counters but I have no idea about how to integrate it in a function such as \fullcite any pointers will be very helpful. – Shreyas Karnik Mar 14 '11 at 3:11
What are you trying to do? Because the \fullcite method isn't really intended for this. Are you trying to make a bibliography with different categories? If that's the case, you can do that in biblatex, but without using \fullcite. – Alan Munn Mar 14 '11 at 3:38
I am creating a annotated bibliography using biblatex-apa. In this process I also need to add numbers such as: 1. Ref 2. Ref to the bibliography, that is why I asked the question regarding counter integrated with \fullcite – Shreyas Karnik Mar 14 '11 at 3:46

The latest version of biblatex-apa (2.6 or above) now fixes this problem, so you should update. biblatex-apa now provides two commands: \fullcite which makes an inline reference (with no hanging indent) and \fullcitebib which makes a fake bibliography entry, with a hanging indent.

If you are making a categorised bibliography for a CV, for example, there are better ways to achieve this than using multiple \fullcitebib commands.

To make an annotated bibliography using \fullcitebib commands you could do the following:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[american]{babel}
\usepackage{csquotes}
\usepackage[style=apa]{biblatex}
\DeclareLanguageMapping{american}{american-apa}
\bibliography{biblatex-examples}

\newcounter{bibnum}
\DeclareCiteCommand{\fullcitebib}
{\renewenvironment*{thebibliography}
{\list
{\stepcounter{bibnum}\thebibnum.\ }
{\setlength{\leftmargin}{1.65\bibhang}
%
\setlength{\itemindent}{-\bibhang}%
\setlength{\itemsep}{\bibitemsep}%
\setlength{\parsep}{\bibparsep}}}
{\endlist}
\begin{thebibliography}\thebibitem}
{\usedriver
{\DeclareNameAlias{sortname}{default}}
{\thefield{entrytype}}\finentry}
{\thebibitem}
{\end{thebibliography}}

\begin{document}

\fullcitebib{glashow}

Some annotations.

\fullcitebib{herrmann}

Some annotations
\end{document}
