# Biblatex: Removing underlining of journal title and enabling line break of it

I'd like to use authoryear-comp for my bibliography. However, I'd like to suppress underlining the journal title that seems to be set default.

Also, I got the problem that a line break is not inserted into the journal title, so that the title extends beyond the border. Is there a way to change this?

Here is an MWE:

\documentclass[12pt]{scrbook}
\usepackage[style=authoryear-comp, maxnames=1, doi=false, url=false, backend=bibtex8]{biblatex}
\bibliography{LitThesis}

\begin{document}
Here is my reference \parencite{Hummelen1997}.

\printbibliography

\end{document}


Bibtex code:

@ARTICLE{Hummelen1997,
author = {the author},
title = {the title},
journal = {Chemistry},
year = {1997},
volume = {3},
pages = {1489--1493},
number = {9},
month = {09}
}


So concerning the problem with the month I tried to do the following:

\usepackage[style=authoryear-comp, maxnames=1, doi=false, url=false, month=false, backend=bibtex8]{biblatex}


But I get an error because "month" is not recognized as a value. Is there a way to suppress showing the month in the bibliography?

Welcome to tex.sx! You don't have to sign with your name since it automatically appears in the lower right corner of your post. –  Joseph Wright May 6 '11 at 9:56
@Anja: It sounds as if you are loading a package which redefined \emph to underline. Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. –  Joseph Wright May 6 '11 at 9:57
You can try \DeclareFieldFormat[article]{title}{#1\isdot} but an example might be needed. I hav not used this style in a while but I don't remember anything beeing underlined –  Martin H May 6 '11 at 9:57
@ Joseph: While creating an MWE I noticed that indeed I had the ulem-package that was causing this problem. Upon removal of the package both problems were solved. Thank you! –  Anja May 6 '11 at 10:08
@Anja: You can load the package ulem with the option normalem –  Marco Daniel May 6 '11 at 10:47

How to hide month in the bibliography:

\documentclass[12pt]{scrbook}
\usepackage[style=authoryear-comp, maxnames=1, doi=false, url=false, backend=bibtex8]{biblatex}
\bibliography{LitThesis}
\AtEveryBibitem{%
\clearfield{month}%
}
\begin{document}
Here is my reference \parencite{Hummelen1997}.

\printbibliography

\end{document}

Thank you, Thorsten! –  Anja May 10 '11 at 9:51

To suppress underlining the journal title (and allow line breaks):

\makeatletter
\long\def\emph#1{\ifmmode\nfss@text{\em #1}\else\hmode@bgroup\text@command{#1}\em\check@icl #1\check@icr\expandafter\egroup\fi}
\makeatother

Welcome to TeX.SX! Perhaps you can extend your answer by providing a complete minimal working example to the OP. –  Claudio Fiandrino Mar 13 at 10:16
