I have papers p1, p2, p3, .... Under each of them, i'd like to list papers that cite them:

[1] c11
[2] c12

[1] c21
[2] c22


I can build *.bib files for each of my papers, but I don't know how to use them to form the above formatting.

p1, p2, ... are in mine.bib. c11, c12, ... are in citee1.bib. c21, c22, ... are in citee2.bib. ...

What I'd try to do is to add the papers to be cited in a field of the entry, and massage that into something that tricks BibTeX into spitting out what you want. Probably using Perl, as that is what I'm most familiar with. – vonbrand Feb 25 '13 at 5:43
Please provide a full minimal working example. How do you create your bibliography? Do you use biblatex? – Marco Daniel Feb 25 '13 at 5:49

Here is a solution using biblatex (and biber as backend). The key point is to use the related field provided by biblatex. This field stores a list of citation keys (and the solution uses the value citing for the field relatedtype). After that we have to define how to render the list of related. A simple way is to use an enumerated list, and for each item is rendered by using the appropriate driver.

author = "Last, First",
title = "title",
journal = "journal",
year = "2011",
related = {second,third},
relatedtype = {citing}
author = "Last, First",
title = "title",
journal = "journal",
year = "2012",
related = {one,third},
relatedtype = {citing}
author = "Last, First",
title = "title",
journal = "journal",
year = "2013",
related = {second,one},
relatedtype = {citing}
author = "Last, First",
title = "title",
journal = "journal",
year = "2014",


    \item \entrydata{#1}{\usedriver{}{\thefield{entrytype}}}\adddot 
\DeclareFieldFormat{related:citing}{\par Cited by:

\cite{one}, \cite{second}, \cite{fourth}


resulting in

enter image description here

PS The various references can be in multiple .bib files. Just load them with multiple \addbibresources.

EDIT: It is possible to change the title of the bibliography by using the title option of \printbibliography. Namely

\printbibliography[title={List of publications citing my publications}]

There are several ways to avoid printing the references. The simple one is to use \nocite{key} for each of the references to be inserted (and for which one wants to show the publication citing it).

How to change "References" to "List of papers citing my papers"? Also, how to omit the main part of the article "Last 2011, Last 2012, Last 2014"? – qazwsx Feb 26 '13 at 4:42
