I am using biblatex for my thesis. I have to create some entries for book reviews. But as I know, biblatex doesnt provide an entry type specifically for reviews as standard type. It seems that I have to put the reviews in the type article. However, one would expect more functionalities than the normal article. Like the link http://www.springerlink.com/content/j84v764gq0h1n826/ shows, the informations of a reviewed work should actually contain complete formatting: title in italic etc. But the article provides only one formatting for its title which seems to contain the informations of reviewed works. Is there a cleverer method for inputting the book reviews than just input them all manually in article?

biblatex does have a document type review, the standard styles just don't support it. Depending on your needs, biblatex-fiwi which has special support for review might be of interest. – Simifilm Oct 23 '12 at 20:40
I think biblatex-chicago supports this type as well. – Paul Stanley Oct 23 '12 at 21:59
I am using biblatex-philosophy. It has a better layout. But the short documentation of biblatex-philosophy is in Italian. It seems that it doesnt really provide an entrytype review. – insight Oct 24 '12 at 12:32
Perhaps it would be a good idea to build a short minimal working example (MWE) including a small bib file (use package filecontents to include it in the MWE) to play with? – Kurt Oct 24 '12 at 13:21
To answer this properly we need a MWE of the input you want to use and how it should look. Without those, it's too localized. – Joseph Wright Dec 2 '12 at 11:46
