# bibliography in Beamer

In Beamer, bibliography is displayed in the way that authors, title and journals are in three lines. Here is an example.

Since I have many references, I am wondering, whether we can put them in one line to save some space? Another option is whether we can split the references into several slides?

How are you loading your bibliography? On my slides (where I use bibtex and \bibliographystyle{amsalpha}, there is no such splitting of lines. –  Willie Wong Oct 4 '11 at 12:02
Thanks Willie Wong, I am using \bibliographystyle{apalike}, after changing to amsalpha, there is no such splitting of lines. :-) –  Anand Oct 4 '11 at 12:17

For splitting the references up into several slides, use the allowframebreaks option, as in:

\begin{frame}[allowframebreaks]
\frametitle{References}
\bibliographystyle{amsalpha}
\bibliography{../bib_files/jabrefmaster.bib}
\end{frame}


For the "three line splitting", this is because you either composed a bibliography list with the \newblock command built-in, or are using a \bibliographystyle that inserts the \newblock command. Your choices are to either drop the \newblocks (either edit them out or using a different style), or modify how beamer handle's the command.

From the link, setting the following in the preamble should work:

\setbeamertemplate{bibliography entry title}{}
\setbeamertemplate{bibliography entry location}{}
\setbeamertemplate{bibliography entry note}{}

Thanks Willie Wong, your codes work perfectly on my system. Thanks a lot! :-) –  Anand Oct 4 '11 at 12:19
