# How to underline the name of a journal in bibliography without modifying the .bib file [closed]

I'm trying to underline the name of the journals in my bibliography without modifying the .bib file. I'm using BibTeX. I'm not familiar with the packages and syntax that is used in the hacks I've seen posted around.

Underlining is rather unusual in printed work (it tends to be a 'by hand' indication of italic). –  Joseph Wright Mar 26 '12 at 19:02
the custom-bib package provides one of the easiest ways to set up your own bibliography style file (.bst) - it certainly allows for italic journal names, but I am not sure that it provides an underlining option. AFAIK underlining cannot be broken across lines - which might cause a problem for automatically doing is for long journal names –  prettygully Mar 26 '12 at 19:51
The underlining is a requirement in a paper I have to hand in. custom-bib doesn't suport underlining of journal names. I actually tried to modify the .bib directly but that didn't work either. Any other suggestions? –  Vincent Mar 26 '12 at 21:24
there is the ulem package - it changes emphasized text to underlined - it might work if your journal names are in \em rather than \it –  prettygully Mar 26 '12 at 21:43
Which bibliographical style are you using? –  Gonzalo Medina Mar 26 '12 at 23:49
