I'm quite new with biblatex.

Is there a possibility to have the shorttitle within the Reference list? I'd like to have something as the normal entries, each looking +/- like

Jorio Marco, "Wider den Pakt mit dem Teufel". Die Gegenwehr der Konservativen, in: Hildbrand/Tanner, Revolution, S. 139–160. [Jorio, Pakt]

I mainly care about the latest part. The "List of Shorthands" didn't really do the trick.

Welcome to TeX.sx! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. In special the relevant bib entry. – Marco Daniel Apr 19 '12 at 16:07

Your bibliography example doesn't contain any year data, but I'm assuming you're using the authortitle style (or one of its variants). Also note that shorttitle and shorthand are distinctive fields.





  author = {Blinder, Alan S.},
  year = {1974},
  title = {The economics of brushing teeth},
  shorttitle = {Brushing teeth},
  journaltitle = {Journal of Political Economy},
  volume = {82},
  number = {4},
  pages = {887--891},


\textheight=120pt% just for the example


Some text \autocite{Bli74}.

If you wish to add lists of shorttitles, biblatex 2.9/biber 1.9 (currently in DEV) can now print arbitrary lists of such information - a generalisation of the \printshorthands facility. See my answer to tex.stackexchange.com/questions/29122/… – PLK Mar 24 '14 at 9:26
