I have seen Multiple bibliographies (cited references + list of publications) and How can I include a bibliography at the end of each part of a book? but could find an answer.

I am writing a thesis where there is an overall bibliography. Plus, I want to make a separate list of my own publications. I tried exactly this: http://memming.isloco.com/ but somehow a bibliography list is not created. Can you please tell, how can I make a separate publication list.

I am using university provided thesis, which includes natbib, so I am not sure if I can use other packages.

I would make a seperate LaTeX document for it, and then just include the resulting bibliography. You second document, let's say myrefs.tex might look like this:

% whatever you need here, basically a good idea is to use your real thesis header
Hello world!

Now you compile this by standard sequence latex+bibtex+latex+latex. In your real thesis you add the following:

\renewcommand\refname{List of my Publications}

This should add the bibliography from the second document into the first one, and the name of the chapter/section should be List of my Publications.

Thanks. It gives the same number to my papers as in the BIG bibliography. It would be good, if it gives 1, 2 .... numbers. Can you please help. – user984260 Feb 6 '13 at 16:32
I could solve that also. Thanks for your help. – user984260 Feb 6 '13 at 16:37
For document classes book and report, you need \renewcommand\bibname{List of my Publications} instead of \renewcommand\refname{List of my Publications}. – QkuCeHBH Jun 10 '13 at 20:34

The easiest way to do so is to use the biblatex package! You can put libraries where you want. You should read the manual!


\usepackage[ngerman, english]{babel}
]{biblatex} % Load the package with some options.
\addbibresource{/Users/Phil/Documents/Bibliothek/library.bib} % This is your library.


% Print your own papers.
% If you print a bibliography within this section, only citations within this refsection will be printed.

% Option 1: Make nocite for all of your papers.
% Options 2 would be a seperate file which contains all of your papers.
    Some words before I show you the list of my own papers.
    A bunch of papers are still in print and not yet published.
    title={Author's Contributions},

\chapter{First Chapter}
Some Text with reference \cite{Madelung1991}.

\chapter{Second Chapter}
Some more Text with reference \cite{Einstein1905a}.

% Here we print the overall bibliography form the rest of the document.
