# Cite bibliography in beamer

I am preparing a beamer presentation. In some slides (4 of 30) I want to cite one or two bibliographic references and put them at the bottom of each slide. They lie there just as a bulleted list, not being cited in the text of the slide.

I wonder what is the best approach to do so.

PS: I forgot to mention that bibliographic entries are stored in a .bib file

From your previous question, you know how to create references as "bulleted lists" using biblatex. Have you tried the beamer/biblatex combo? –  lockstep Aug 29 '11 at 13:47
yes, I have tried this, sorry. The problem now is that I do not get the same format for bibliography in both latex document and beamer presentation; in beamer it gets a bit weird; I do not like ; authors, ... IN Journal ... –  flow Aug 30 '11 at 11:04
Have a look at tex.stackexchange.com/q/10682/510. –  lockstep Aug 30 '11 at 11:06
ok, but now the problem continues; I get "pp" for the page numbers, like if I was to cite a proceeding instead of a journal, and the volume number appers weird like 13.4 instead of 13(4) ... can not tell beamer to put them in some concrete style? –  flow Aug 30 '11 at 11:38
beamer has nothing to do with bibliography styles. For customizing biblatex styles, have a look at this question (e.g. it tells you how to remove "pp."). Anyhow, you should ask a new question if you need additional advice. –  lockstep Aug 30 '11 at 11:43

EDIT

Here a minimal example, which you should provide.:

\RequirePackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib}
@book{test,
author={John Smith},
title={A book},
publisher={Puplisher},
year={1742},
}
\end{filecontents*}
\documentclass{beamer}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
asd\cite{test}
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}
\bibliographystyle{alpha}

\bibliography{\jobname}
\end{frame}

\end{document}


ALSO NO PROBLEM -- but the same problem you have to provide a minimal example.

thanks a lot, I forgot to mention that bibliographic entries are stored in a .bib file –  flow Aug 29 '11 at 13:37
@flow: Same as usual. –  Marco Daniel Aug 29 '11 at 13:42
thanks, now it works. The problem now is that I do not get the same format for bibliography in both latex document and beamer presentation; in beamer it gets a bit weird; I do not like ; authors, ... IN Journal ... – –  flow Aug 30 '11 at 11:04
so I wonder how can I give it the exact format for the biliography, I just would like; authors, title, journal, etc (similar so American Medical Association style) –  flow Aug 30 '11 at 11:05
Ok, I reformulated my question and put an example here: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/26959/… –  flow Aug 30 '11 at 12:42
