Thanks for the help.

Once again, as @PauloCereda has pointed out (in a comment to Change style bibliographies), you don't have to hack into the .bst file to accomplish this, since with abntcite package, you have several options that can be chosen during the package load with

\usepackage[<option>]{abntcite}


Please refer to the documentation in the abntex-doc-<version>.<zip> file on the project's page.

To accomplish what you're asking now, you just have to change abnt-thesis-yearoption to both with

\usepackage[abnt-thesis-year=both]{abntcite}


Here's a MWE:

\documentclass{article}
% to embed a .bib file in the source
\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@MASTERSTHESIS{fabio,
author = {Anna Izabel J. Tostes},
title = {Representações neural e fuzzy de controle},
school = {Pontifícia Universidade Católica de Minas Gerais},
year = {2010}
}\end{filecontents}

\usepackage[alf,abnt-emphasize=bf,abnt-thesis-year=both]{abntcite}

\begin{document}

\cite{fabio}

\bibliography{\jobname}

\end{document}


(It's worth noting, however, that this might not be always correct, since what the ABNT aims here are those cases when the date of the public defense (the first year, next to the title) and the date of publication (the final year) are different. abntcite does not support these cases).

Thanks for answer. The just thinks that I don't have certainty is the year in final. I think that standards of my University, don't have year in finale, then I think that need withdraw. How can I do? Thanks for the help. – Fábio Cordeiro Nov 9 '12 at 18:42
Use abnt-thesis-year=title instead of both. The default is final. Those are the three options for setting the year field in thesis entries. Check the table 4.3, section 4.2.2 on the above mentioned documentation – henrique Nov 10 '12 at 0:54
thanks very. Was exactly the what I need. – Fábio Cordeiro Nov 10 '12 at 15:52
Glad it helped. You might consider to accept the answer (see How do you accept an answer?) – henrique Nov 12 '12 at 2:45
