I've been writing my thesis and using bibtex, unfortunately I could not find a .bst to match the required format. It requires some particles to change from English to Spanish, as well as some changes in formatting. The most similar style I could find was Harvard's agsm.

  1. Authors to be listed with "y" instead of "and".
  2. Use "et al" in text when there are more than 3 authors.
  3. Underline the title.
  4. Place the year after the title.

This is shown here!

Can this please be done by modifying directly the agsm.bst? I've tried to use makebst but latex doesn't seem to be able to use the .bst produced by that.

My code is this:

\decimalpoint %\spanishdecimal{.}


asdasd \cite{chsh_inequality} asdasd \cite{aspect_test_bell}


and my bib is

   author = {{Clauser}, J.~F. and {Horne}, M.~A. and {Shimony}, A. and {Holt}, R.~A.
    title = "{Proposed Experiment to Test Local Hidden-Variable Theories}",
  journal = {Physical Review Letters},
     year = 1969,
    month = oct,
   volume = 23,
    pages = {880-884},
      doi = {10.1103/PhysRevLett.23.880},
   adsurl = {http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/1969PhRvL..23..880C},
  adsnote = {Provided by the SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System}

   author = {{Aspect}, A. and {Grangier}, P. and {Roger}, G.},
    title = "{Experimental Tests of Realistic Local Theories via Bell's Theorem}",
  journal = {Physical Review Letters},
 keywords = {Fluorescence, phosphorescence},
     year = 1981,
    month = aug,
   volume = 47,
    pages = {460-463},
      doi = {10.1103/PhysRevLett.47.460},
   adsurl = {http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/1981PhRvL..47..460A},

Welcome to TeX.sx! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem (what do you meant that the style produced with makebst does not work?) –  Guido Jan 5 '13 at 7:41
for a first test put the new bst-file into your documents directory and change \bibliographystyle{...} to the new bst name. –  Herbert Jan 5 '13 at 7:58
If I use \bibliographystyle{fiuady} instead of \bibliographystyle{agsm} I get The style file: fiuady.bst instead of The style file: agsm.bst Database file #1: ejem_biblio.bib –  Oscar Lazo Jan 5 '13 at 8:09
The result is a document in which there are question marks in citations, and there is no Bibliography –  Oscar Lazo Jan 5 '13 at 8:13
@OscarLazo Your custom .bst should work after latex, bibtex, latex, latex (the standard 'recipe'), certainly if BibTeX is finding it. On your various cusomisation questions, the StackExchange model works best if questions apply to more than one person. Each customisation does, but asking them all in one go makes it very unlikely to apply to anyone else. You might want to see if the individual parts have been asked before. –  Joseph Wright Jan 5 '13 at 8:55
