Documentation: You can find the documentation for bibliographies here: bibmod-doc A new implementation is currently in beta. You can find the documentation for it here: mkiv-publications From BibTeX to ConTeXt MKVI Some examples: These citation styles seem to work out of the box: (Author, YYYY) \cite[alternative=authoryears][author2001] Author ...

jabref can do this in both command line and gui modes. First gui mode: Keep your master.bib file open in jabref. Then in Tools → New subdatase based on AUX file to get Here select the .aux file, click parse, and select and the generate. You should get a sub database opened in jabref. Save it. From command line, assuming that you take care of paths do ...

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 ...

I'll will give you a more basic approach without additional tools like JabRef. In my opinion, these tools are fine and can make life a lot easier, but you should have a basic knowledge of what is going on under the hood. Another example is latexmk which takes care of the multiple runs of different programs needed for the finished document. But you should ...

The failure is not related to arara, but to the fact that you're loading twice your bibliography database: \addbibresource{test.bib} \bibliography{test} All you have to do is to remove the line \bibliography{test} which is redundant. So the MWE % arara: xelatex % arara: bibtex % arara: xelatex % arara: xelatex \documentclass{article} ...

article class (and probably most others) defines the bibliography with \sfcode`\.\@m so you do not get end of sentence spaces.

For the answer to your edited question see here (the old version with explanations is left below). Our bibliography environment can be even more mundane now \defbibenvironment{bibliography} {\noindent} {\unspace} {} The work is now done by begentry which prints the label \renewbibmacro*{begentry}{% \printtext[labelnumberwidth]{% ...

From the babelbib manual: If you don’t want this behaviour you can use additional variants that use the same notation for all names. By appending -fl to the style name, e.g., babalpha-fl, all names are written “Forename Lastname”. By appending -lf, e.g., babalpha-lf, all names are written “Lastname, Forename”. So use babplain-lf instead of ...

Technical Limitations The technical limitations of using the DOI as bibkey are that they should not contain a character that has special meaning in the .bib file syntax, that is you cannot have a comma , or curly braces {/} because that will make Biber/BibTeX think the bibkey has ended when it hasn't. Additionally one should be wary of special UTF8 ...

As with various parts of the TeX tool chain, often the most sensible way to report a bug in BibTeX is to raise the issue on the TeX Live mailing list. There are a range of TeX experts on that list and importantly the TeX Live developers are often in a good position to contact binary authors or to make changes to the code (license-dependent). Moreover, before ...

You can use the \vphantom command to include the closing bracket but not showing it, i.e. @book{test_123, title = {How to use \{\vphantom{\}} in Bib(La)TeX?}, author = {Vinckevicius, Aurimas} } works for me with normal BibTeX and the following tex file: \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \cite{test_123} \bibliography{references} ...

Bibtex solution: Multiple bibliographies are not possible with standard bibtex. However, the multibib package allows for it. multibib offers the \newcites{ac}{Academic} commands that appends the proxies ac to standard bibliography commands, i.e., \citeac, \nociteac, \bibliographystyleac and \bibliographyac. The second argument is the heading of the ...

Use grep or some other search tool, or use a number in order of reference bibliography style and put \nocite{*} at the end of the document then any "unused" references will appear at the end of your reference list with the highest numbers, coming after any real reference

In order for a compound name to be considered a single token as far as abbrv.bst is concerned, it's sufficient to hide the hyphen: @phdthesis{phd/MW2014, author = {Klopotsko M{\"u}ller{-}Wachtendonk}, title = {Das Bild h{\"a}ngt schief}, year = {2014} } Note that the entry is missing the school field (not required, but important for ...

You are refering with a wrong bibtex key.

If one does some digging in chicago-notes.cbx, in the definition for the cite bibmacro one finds \ifboolexpr{ test {\iffieldundef{shorthand}}% or ( togl {blx@skipbiblist}% and togl {cms@inheritshhand}% and not test {\iffieldundef{crossref}}% ) } And indeed that seems to be the boolean expression that causes etoolbox ...

To create a .bib file from scratch, the simplest is to use JabRef, a multiplatform bibliography manager written in java. You only have to choose the type of entries you want to cite (article, book, conference &c.), fill in forms for the relevant fields. JabRef has import and export functionalities. Added: As @AlanMunn recalled, Mac users have another ...

It is in no way discouraged to comment any files you might have written. What you came across is a slight discrepancy in the handling of comments, or if you will a disagreement about what constitutes a comment. According to btxdoc, §4, item 7, p. 13 BibTeX allows in the database files any comment that's not within an entry. If you want to comment out an ...

According to the documentation of bibtex, the sort order of plain is author, year, title, as the OP stated, not author, title, year. This seems to be a misunderstanding. This refers to plain standard style, where as in section 2.2 of bibtex manual the changes are described: If the author, title, year sorting is requested, it's perhaps better to use the ...

@egreg's comment is correct; the user base for amsrefs is mainly material published by the ams, although i know of a few other journals that accept its use. bibtex was very solidly entrenched before amsrefs was envisioned, and there were (sadly unrealized) hopes for its "completion". there are, as far as i know, no formal pros/cons lists for amsrefs. one ...

The implementation in biblatex-ieee follows as far as possible that in ieeetran. The latter describes itself as being official correct, so this is a reasonable reference point. On the specific point about the 'Oxford comma' here, if you look at texdoc ieeetran and for example ref. 20 you will see C. Barratt, M. C. Grant, and D. Carlisle. with a comma. ...

Natbib sets the punctuation before the post-note with the key notesep in \setcitestyle. So to make it a space instead of comma-space, just put in the preamble \setcitestyle{notesep={ }} Also, do not put \begin...\end in your .bib file.
