I don't see how you're going to get around a lot of hand-editing to recreate a .bib file from the .bbl file. A lot of essential meta information is embedded in bib files that's not contained in bbl files: For each and every entry, somebody competent has to decide the appropriate entry type: @article, @book, something else? You'll have to assign a key to ...

Just go to http://www.ctan.org/upload and follow the steps outlined.

The 'compile' button is running a default compilation sequence. It sounds as if this is probably pdfLaTeX in your case. (You can probably change this if you wanted - many editors allow you to customise the default.) To generate your bibliography, you need to look at what is in your document. How are you managing references? If you use commands such as ...

A possible solution is to define a new command to expand to \& or and depending whether it is executed in a \citep or in a \citep. To this end the first step is to define the bbl.amp function as follows: FUNCTION {bbl.amp} { "\protect\myamp "} This has the effect to insert \protect\myamp in the proper places in the .bbl file, in particular we need ...

If you are in mathematics then you can use AMS MRef web page to reconstruct many of the bibtex entries directly from your PDF or bbl file. For example, if you cut and paste the reference A. Beilinson, V. Ginzburg, and W. Soergel, Koszul duality patterns in representation theory, J. Amer. Math. Soc., 9 (1996), 473–527. into mref, click on the bibtex ...

It is possible to use non ASCI character in bibtex entry keys if one compiles with lualatex or xelatex and either bibtex8 or bibtexu. Here is an MWE: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{fontspec} \usepackage{filecontents} \begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib} @misc{Ricœur1955, author = {Ricœur, Paul}, title = {La parole est mon royaume}, number = ...

I tested your bib data and found that the only problem is with the dash or hyphenation character, not the length of the page numbers. Change the field from pages = {12783−12792}, to either pages = {12783-12792}, or pages = {12783--12792}, and it works. (Using double quotes instead of curly braces to delimit the field is OK too.) Observe that the − ...

Here's a solution that should work with any bib file, including one in which the entries have been sorted in reverse alphabetical order. First, insert the following instruction at the top of the bib file: @preamble{ "\newcommand{\noop}[1]{}" } At first blush, the \noop instruction would seem to be pointless as it doesn't do anything with its argument. ...

You need \usepackage{url}. \documentclass[journal]{IEEEtran} \usepackage{url}% \usepackage{filecontents} \begin{filecontents}{mybib.bib} @electronic{IntelNode, title = "Intel Intelligent Power Node Manager", url = "http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sysmgmt/sb/node_manager_white_paper.pdf", note = "Accessed: 2014-10-14" } ...

Add the following to your preamble: \AtEveryBibitem{% \clearfield{note}% } See also Guidelines for customizing biblatex styles, section "Suppressing of specific BibTeX fields".

As others have said, your question is not very clear. For that reason, I doubt very much that this will answer it. However, it is too long for a comment and perhaps it will help you to clarify your question. (At that point, I can change or delete this answer as appropriate.) I've tidied up your MWE a bit so that it includes some stuff necessary to actually ...

The citation format you want is already defined in apalike, unless you modified the style. Try the following and if it does not help, maybe update your natbib package. In mybib.bib I have three entries from different years, where the first two have the same authors and the third is modified: @article{jd12, author={Doe, J. and Bar, F. and Smith, J.}, ...

If you don't provide any \cite commands, then BibTeX (and LaTeX) won't know which entries in Bibliografy.bib to typeset: All of them? Just some of them -- and, if so, which ones? The result of having no \cite commands is the warning (not an error, by the way, "just" a warning) about Empty thebibliography environment on input line <line number>. The ...

Here is a Perl program template that can be used to extract any parts of the entry based on the key: #! /usr/bin/env perl use warnings; use strict; use feature qw(say); use Text::BibTeX; die "Usage $0 <bibfile> <key>\n" if @ARGV != 2; my $fn=shift; my $key=shift; my $bibfile = new Text::BibTeX::File($fn); while (my $entry = new ...

This can be done in the following way, if you are willing to create a custom .bst file. In your document, you need the following lines: \usepackage{titlecaps} \Addlcwords{the of into} where the \usepackage makes use of the titlecaps package which has the \titlecap macro. The \Addlcwords macro provides a list of words that should remain lower case and ...

Having a look around just found about the pagebackref option in the hyperref package, which can be loaded this way: \usepackage[pagebackref=true]{hyperref} It uses backref, so you can modify the formatting as explained here. This provides the back references for the references shown in the bibliography, not for footnotes. A question some years ago led to ...

Springer writes in its Key_Style_Points_HumanitiesRef.pdf (0.4 MB): This style is based on the reference list style as suggested by the Chicago Manual of Style (15th edn.). In order to facilitate automated processing, the citation of Internet publications has been modified and follows the standard structure of journal and book citations. If you ...

I think maybe I can answer my own question now. The key to this problem is to generate a custom bibliography style bst file. There are two ways to do it use makebst tool in package custom-bib use windows software bib-it makebst is a command-line tool to generate a custom .bst file after you answering a series of around 70 questions related to the ...

I'll answer this from the standpoint of what BibDesk is supposed to do, since it was mentioned specifically in the original question. Here is the content of the example.bib file I'll be using for this demonstration: @comment{Here is a comment} As far as BibTeX is concerned, this is also a comment. article{test1, title = "This is missing the opening ...

The econometrica.bst in CTAN is in the “obsolete” tree. It doesn't cooperate with natbib to allow longnamesfirst to act. The successor seems to be ecta and, indeed, the following input seems to produce the correct output (but with a small difference in the placement of the publisher). \begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib} @InCollection{BGG:1999, ...

Based on a quick google search, there are a couple of scripts that might work: tex2bib: http://mirror.ctan.org/biblio/bibtex/utils/tex2bib convertbiblio http://www.mi.infm.it/manini/scripts/convertbiblio.py Usual caveats of course apply to running scripts from the internet! As others have indicated, you will likely have to clean your entries up manually. ...

With many thanks to Joseph Wright I will conclude this: All that was actually required were additional braces around \v{S}. Using {\v{S}} everything works as expected. To be precise, the bib file now reads as follows: @Book{cube, Title = {Matematika ZD{\v{S}} v kocke}, Author = {Novovesk{\'{y}}, {\v{S}}. and ...

It looks like the bibliography style file ormsv080.bst was created with the makebst utility. As such, it is unfortunately not programmed to recognize -- and will therefore ignore -- a field named, say, last-accessed-date or access-date. If you want to stick with this particular bibliography style, you'll need to change the field note = {05.10.2014} to ...

As Mike Renfro has already mentioned, the problem has something to do with the citation style, in this case apalike2. The function for "incollection" is as follows: FUNCTION {incollection} { output.bibitem format.authors "author" output.check author format.key output % special for output.year.check % apalike new.block ...

Use Show advanced options. See the image below. You can edit almost everything. Go to Options menu. On the Build tab you can see the pdfchain. I guess that what you want is txs:///pdflatex | txs:///bibtex | txs:///pdflatex | txs:///pdflatex | txs:///view-pdf

I have checked the blg file. I have changed the file names to be fully in small letters instead of capital and small letters articleegc.tex and articleegc.bib instead of ArticleEGC.tex and ArticleEGC.bib and it worked! Is that even logical?

Since you're using the article document class, you can get a numbered references section by adding the following instructions to the preamble: \usepackage{etoolbox} \patchcmd{\thebibliography}{\section*}{\section}{}{} If you were using the report or book document class (or a document class that's based on either of these classes) you'd replace \section* ...

Do not run BibTeX on the .bib file. Instead, assuming your main tex file is called mytexfile.tex, you should run the following sequence of commands: pdflatex mytexfile bibtex mytexfile pdflatex mytexfile pdflatex mytexfile Observe that no file name extensions are prodived. Of course, if you use either xelatex or lualatex rather than pdflatex, you should ...

I think your problem is not Mendeley, your problem is your outdated TeX/LaTeX-distribution. In your given error message we can read: This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.4-1.40.13 (TeX Live 2012) (format=pdflatex 2012.6.30) 9 OCT 2014 12:51 entering extended mode restricted \write18 enabled. %&-line parsing enabled.

You ask: This works all fine but I would like to be able to click onto the URL and be led to the place in the internet. How can this be done? It looks like you have one too many pairs of curly braces encasing the contents of the note field. Instead of writing Note = {{\url{http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2010ApJ...720.1691S}}}, you should write Note ...
