I can use


to hide urls and dois from my bibliography, but


will not compile, throwing instead a keyval error.

How can I hide the titles of articles from my bibliography?

Is \AtEveryBibitem{\clearfield{title}} what you are after? Or alternatively, \DeclareFieldFormat[article]{title}{}. – Corentin Nov 8 '13 at 5:04
@Corentin, Would I put this somewhere in the header of the LaTeX document source? – Richard Nov 8 '13 at 5:16
Yes, \AtEveryBibitem{\clearfield{title}} is working when placed in the header. – Richard Nov 8 '13 at 5:17
Yes, in the preamble of your document. – Corentin Nov 8 '13 at 6:32
  1. You can use \DeclareSourceMap:

           \step[fieldset=title, null]
  2. You can change the field format of title:


Both solutions can be done at the preamble.

Please note that \DeclareFieldFormat[article]{title}{} can have adverse effects in that it makes biblatex think it printed the title when it didn't, potentially messing up the punctuation. The preferred variant is probably \AtEveryBibitem{\clearfield{title}}/\AtEveryCitekey{\clearfield{title}}. – moewe Mar 17 '15 at 11:54
