I use Zotero + Biblatex + Biber backend + TexStudio as workflow for automation of bibliography citations. You may want to have a look at my answer here, you can give it a try and let me know if that works fine with you.

This is a result of the disambiguation performed by biblatex for authoryear type styles - to avoid mistaking people with the same surname (but different initals or names), it dynamically adds initials or full names (as set by options). The apa style adapts that to add square brackets around those. For details see section 4.11.4.1 of the biblatex manual. To ...

Try the biber option --tool-resolve. This resolves crossref/xref and xdata. To reverse the standard biblatex mappings you mention (which are implemented in biblatex.def using the standard macros in the documentation), copy the standard mappings to your preamble and edit as necessary to reverse them: \DeclareSourcemap[datatype=bibtex]{ \map{ ...

I suspect you have a bibliography that has to be compiled with biber and you are trying to compile it with bibtex. Also you are probably using PDFTeXify command in WinEdt and this compiles with bibtex if you don't specify that you want to use biber. To do that in WinEdt, go to Options -> Execution modes -> Console Applications -> Accessories -> BibTeX and ...

With BibLaTeX 2.x it suffices to add the following lines to your biblatex-dm.cfg: \DeclareDatamodelFields[type=field,datatype=literal,nullok=false]{mrnumber} \DeclareDatamodelEntryfields[article,book]{mrnumber}

we now have some bibliography templates, including a basic Bibtex example, which you can look at to help things https://www.sharelatex.com/templates/bibliographies

This is because file is already a field to biblatex, although one not used by the standard styles, while mynote isn't. You must remap (via DeclareSourcemap) the mynote field to one of the user[a-f] fields before you can use them. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{filecontents} \begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib} @article{Padial:2010, title={The ...

Biblatex offers builtin support for the file field (even if it is not a standard one). Users can extend the data model by creating new fields, but they have to be declared in configuration files According to the manual (page 175) they are ordered as follows: blx-dm.def→ ‘datamodel option’.dbx → ‘style option’.dbx → ‘citestyle option’.dbx and ‘bibstyle ...

There are a number of ways you might exclude particular entries from the printed bibliography: Set skipbib=true as an option in that entry in your .bib file. Set a keyword for such entries, and print a bibliography excluding them with a notkeyword filter. Add such entries to a category using \DeclareBibliographyCategory, \addtocategory and the notcategory ...

This is a tricky topic because with pure bibtex, the .bbl you see is what is included in the document. With biblatex, the .bbl is essentially a database and not necessarily everything in there appears in the document. It depends on the biblatex style and which fields it chooses to use. In general, a wordcount of a biblatex .bbl will overestimate the number ...

Digging in the documentation of TeXcount, I can propose the following workaround. Please note that it is far from perfect: it will throw out a lot of (non critical) errors due to the way TeXcount parses \verb it will be imprecise (count some things which aren't words, not count others... I deem it as acceptable because there is the same problem with ...

just spent a day struggling with this too I used the little browse icon to the side of the bib(la)tex field to find the biber program and it worked fine. I also found that using LaTeX build option (i.e. not pdflatex,etc) for the first build then a bibtex build on the same .tex document then pdfLaTeX build worked well. my bibliography file bib.bib looks ...

jpallen wrote in the comment: James from ShareLaTeX here. Sorry that we're a bit behind the times with our lack of Biber support. BibTeX should work though. I've bumped this up our todo list since I think it's catching people out. Feel free to drop us a support query directly if you ever have similar problems again.
