# Full reference inline in text [duplicate]

Using natbib, how can I obtain a full reference inline in the body of a document? I need to include the full reference, not just the citation, at the beginning of a chapter.

Use the bibentry package, for example

\RequirePackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@book{Goossens-1994,
author    = {Goossens, M. and Mittelbach, F. and Samarin, A.},
title     = {The LaTeX Companion},
year      = {1994}}
@book{Press-1997,
author    = {Press, W. H. and Teukolsky, S. A.
and Vetterling, W. T. and Flannery, B. P.},
title     = {Numerical Recipes in {C}, The art of Scientific Computing},
edition   = {2},
publisher = {Cambridge University Press},
year      = {1997}}
\end{filecontents}

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{natbib}
\usepackage{bibentry}
\bibliographystyle{plainnat}
\begin{document}
\nobibliography*

\section{Inline bib entry}

\section{Normal citations}

\bibliography{\jobname}
\end{document}

Is it possible not to include the \bibentry entries in the main bibliography (if they are not cited anywhere else)? –  SabreWolfy Feb 17 '13 at 8:31
@SabreWolfy: No unfortunately not –  Danie Els Feb 17 '13 at 13:33
