# Bibliography style in CV

I'm using the following nice LaTeX template for CV. I'm getting the bibliography in the following style

``````Hyndman, R. J., M. L. King, I. Pitrun, and M. B. Billah etc
``````

I want the `apacite` style. I tried the following code:

``````\usepackage{apacite}
\bibliographystyle{apacite}
``````

but it did not work. I'd highly appreciate if you help me to figure out this. Thanks in advance

The problem is that the class used in this example you're referencing to uses `biblatex`. The `apacite` package is designed for use with bibtex. I've never used this style but I found the `biblatex-apa` style which might help you. – Thorsten Feb 3 '12 at 6:42
The `cv.sty` (according to the link in the question) loads biblatex so: `\usepackage[sorting=ynt,bibstyle=authoryear-comp,labelyear=false,defernumbers=t‌​rue,maxnames=20,firstinits=true, uniquename=init,dashed=false]{biblatex}`, so you probably want to comment out that line and provide instead `\usepackage[sytle=apa]{biblatex}` (as Thorsten suggests). – jon Feb 3 '12 at 18:47
Thanks @jon, I'll test this. – MYaseen208 Feb 3 '12 at 21:01
I should've added that `cv.sty` makes some other modifications to the default biblatex style. I've never used `biblatex-apa`, but I suspect the changes in `cv.sty` should also be commented out. Specifically, the `\DeclareFieldFormat`, `\DeclareBibliographyDriver`, and `\renewbibmacro*`. I think the `bibliography categories` stuff should be fine, but I guess look there first if `biblatex-apa` seems incompatible with `cv.sty`. – jon Feb 3 '12 at 21:16
I'm a casual LaTeX user. It would be fine if I get any consistent bibliography style like this: `Hyndman, R. J., King, M. L., Pitrun, I., and Billah, M. B. etc`. I tried the earlier code in your comment but unfortunately got the same style. I would appreciate if you suggest me any code to get the following bibliography style: `Hyndman, R. J., King, M. L., Pitrun, I., and Billah, M. B. etc`. Thanks – MYaseen208 Feb 3 '12 at 22:26

You need to load `biblatex-apa` as a package option when you load the `biblatex` package (thanks Thorsten). The problem is that the cv package you are referring to includes bibliography formatting commands (things like `\DeclareBibliographyDriver`) so you will need to manually load the `biblatex` pacakge after you load the cv package, but even then you might run into some compatibility issues.
Afaik you can't use `\bibliographystyle` in `biblatex`. The `biblatex-apa` style is designed to use with `biblatex`. So you can't use it like you mentioned above (`\bibliographystyle{biblatex-apa}`). It has to be used like this: `\usepackage[style=apa]{biblatex}`. This is exactly what I mentioned above in my comment. – Thorsten Feb 3 '12 at 10:11
