In order for BibDesk to use a particular style file in its TeX preview, the .bst file only needs to be somewhere where a normal TeX distribution can find it, such as in TEXMFHOME. Since we're talking about a Mac here (because of BibDesk), this usually means that it needs to be in ~/Library/texmf/bibtex/bst/. (If you do not know how to set up the TEXMFHOME ...

To achieve what you want, change your Title field to Title = {{\textcolor{red}{\textbf{Messing with Devils all over the World}}}} that is, add an extra pair of braces. MWE \documentclass{article} \usepackage{xcolor} \begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib} @inproceedings{2015-3, Author = {\textbf{James Bond}}, Booktitle = {Doctoral Symposium at the ...

Putting another set of braces around \noop{} apparently solves the problem. So if I write: @article{Test, Author = {Test {\noop{Adams}} van Adams}, Date-Added = {2015-02-20 20:18:24 +0000}, Date-Modified = {2015-02-20 20:31:54 +0000}, Journal = {Sample Journal}, Title = {Sample Title}, Year = {2015}} the ...

Using TeXmaker's (any other IDE's shortcut keys) will not speed up the basic compilation process. However here are a few items for you. 1) If you are in the midst of just editing text then I suggest that you just use F6 then F7 to compile and view pdf OR use F2 then F3 for compile and view of dvi. Caution: The exact placement of items on the page may ...

It's almost as easy as changing \nobibliography* into \nobibliography{<file>}: \begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib} @article{bla, title={blabla}, author={me} } @book{blabook, title={blablabook}, author={me} } \end{filecontents*} \documentclass{article} \usepackage{natbib} \usepackage{bibentry} \bibliographystyle{plainnat} \begin{document} ...

Replace the TeX primitive input with the LaTeX command \include. Then you can select the sections to compile with the LaTeX command \includeonly{chapters/chap0}. The LaTeX include mechanism automatically takes care of cross references. You will have to re-organise your input a little, because \include forces a page break (and you don't want a page break ...

\Users is an undefined command. Use / as the path separator.

The appearance of your bibliography is determined by this command: \bibliographystyle{style-name} You can preview a brief list of author-year bibliography styles here: As Mico identified, your current bibliography style is ACM-Reference-Format-Journals, and it gives this output: The year is listed twice, but this appears to be a property of the ...

Thanks to @jon for the hint: It can be done with biber with the following command: biber --tool --output_encoding=cp1252 mybib.bib I got an error message first: read_file '/var/folders/FX/FXr0KhAz2RWkK++BYv0W1++++TU/-Tmp-/par-6d626734/cache-a3cdad9231‌​6c60c9c5179d80d6bb51a7a024393c/inc/lib/Biber/biber-tool.conf' - sysopen: No such file or directory ...

I usually create RFC documentation for personal usage. To achieve similar format, you can use biblatex package with style=alphabetic and add \DeclareFieldFormat{labelalpha}{\thefield{entrykey}} after loading biblatex package. \documentclass{article} \usepackage[backend=bibtex, natbib=true, style=alphabetic]{biblatex} ...

My mistake. I was setting the beamer template for bibitems. My file read \setbeamertemplate{bibliography item}{[\theenumiv]} when it should have read \setbeamertemplate{bibliography item}[text]

Here is a MWE, that achieves that 'van Adams' is not stored under 'v', but for some reason not that it is stored under 'a': Test.bib file just contains: @article{V, Author = {Sample Voyt}, Date-Added = {2015-02-20 20:26:14 +0000}, Date-Modified = {2015-02-20 20:27:33 +0000}, Journal = {Sample Journal}, Title = ...

This is quite the manual, and simply, solution, but would it be possible simply to manually open your .bib file and do a find and replace? Say you want to make ``Bleeker, Marjo'' bold. You simply open your .bib file, search for Bleeker, Marjo, replace it with \textbf{Bleeker, Marjo}, and compile your .tex. \begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib} ...

A solution to your problem would be to add a script to your git workflow, that reformats your .bib-file. One such tool is biber in toolmode. Calling: $ biber --tool example.bib results in a nicely formated file called example_bibertool.bib: @ARTICLE{bib:farzaneh, AUTHOR = {Seyed Amir Farzaneh and Mehran Sohrabi}, BDSK-FILE-1 = ...

Thanks to Giacomo's feedback, I found another solution for this specific problem: The problem is somehow more related to Citavi and Citavi is not as clear or transparent as LaTeX. For future reference of other people who might encounter a similar problem: Although Citavi asks to provide the date in the format urldate={dd.mm.yyyy} you can type it in as ...

for forcing the formatting in BibTeX, I use the double braces, e.g.: Urldate = {{15/01/2014}}

The idea here is that control.author can pass information about a variety of options all encoded into one number. This is the standard idea of using different bits of a number to pass a series of boolean settings. To 'recover' the data, control.author.decode first does a test that control.author is in range (greater than 0, less than 128). That's done by ...

If you are willing to use natbib, you get cite commands like the one you are looking for: http://merkel.zoneo.net/Latex/natbib.php You can use e.g. \citet*{jon90} for that. If you do not like the round brackets for citing, you can customize that (and a lot more).

In case you're still wondering: \cite[e.g.,][]{foo2012, bar2014} I guess the magic is the extra brackets.

Your file runs properly with me, so there two possible explanations: As suggested by @barbara beeton you have problems with the "dash" unicode characters, see related post.

The issue of being unable to use utf8 with LyX has something to do with ClassicThesis not using/supporting [biblatex]?

Actual Reason for this error is... I found that there are two things that I found are necessary to make the IEEEtran class compile: There needs to be a at least one correct citation in your document one in your bib (in your case, bibi.bib) file. In the tool chain, you need to compile with LaTeX (or equivalently PdfLaTeX) twice, then once with BibTex, and ...

Use biblatex. It defines a pagetotal field. For articles, you can use the addendum field, which may contain whatever you want and is printed at the end of the reference.

unsrt numbers citations in the order they appear in the document. The 2 in the \cite{} command and in the .bib file is just the "key" that's used to refer to the entry; it has nothing to do with the numbering of the citations. I don't see how it could simplify the citations: the whole point of BibTeX is to make it so you don't have to worry about any of ...

I had similar issue and here it was solved: I have a main tex file calling all other chapters including reference, and the tex file of each of these chapters are in a separate folder. If you ever used a template to produce a PhD thesis you know what I mean. In my reference folder however I have 2 files, one references.tex and another one references.bib ...

You can change the text via the IEEEtranBSTCTL special BibTeX entry, as documented in the manual (Section VII, page 7): @IEEEtranBSTCTL{IEEEexample:BSTcontrol, CTLname_url_prefix = "[Online]. Disponible en:" }

So, it really seems that the answer is no bibtex style with an easy implementation of the desired feature (or at least it is not easy with bibtex). Thanks to cfr I discovered biblatex/biber and the solution I like is http://tex.stackexchange.com/a/48409/66983 from question biblatex: make title hyperlink to DOIs, URL or ISBN. It has even more features than ...

The problem occurred because a comma was missing in .bib-file, so always remember to add comma between your statements in the bibtex database. See the following code for the fix: @INBOOK{Oestreich-Janzen, author = {S. Oestreich-Janzen}, editor = {Lewis Mander and Hung-Wen Liu}, title = {{Comprehensive Natural Products II}}, ...

This is explained rather well in the document TameTheBeast. The solution is to write Theo as {\relax Th}eo in the bibliography file. This way {\relax Th} is treated as a single special character by the bibtex processor and in particular it is not shortened to just T when creating the abbreviation. A "special character" is any group {\...} at the top ...

As already noted in the comments: JabRef is alive and well and can do the task. But you also asked if there is another tool that can do the job. So here is my answer using bibutils: bibutils is a collection of programs that can convert to and from MODS XML as an intermediate format. In order to convert from BibTeX to tagged Endnote simply call: $ ...

I think what you are searching is the powerful biblatex, coming with all the utilities you need. I made some minor edits to the example, to keep it up to date. You need to decide, if it is applicable to your own project. I used article in the example to keep everything on one page. Which documentclass you are using doesn't really matter. ...

Using and rather than , as the keyword to separate authors is the first part. The second is to determine which parts of each name constitute first names and surnames. If you write author = {Aline Vieira de Mello and Luciano Copello Ost and Fernando Gehm Moraes and Ney Laert Vilar Calazans}, BibTeX will parse each name as follows: First ...

Many journals these days have not updated their style files to incorporate eid's, though an increasing number of journals use them. The Bibulous project provides an alternative IEEE bibliography template that looks for an eid field in a given database entry if it does not find a pages field. The Bibulous-format ieeetr.bst style template file defines the ...

Which BibTeX fields are supported largely depends on which bibliography style you are using. The one recommended for use with the IEEEtrans class is IEEEtran. The style itself is defined in IEEEtran.bst which does not mention the eid field, nor seems to have special handling for article ids. Hence I would say that using the note field seems a valid choice.

Too long for a comment: Please try the following complete, compilable MWE: \RequirePackage{filecontents} \begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib} @article{bertrand, author = {Bertrand, M. and Duflo, E. and Mullainathan, S.}, title = {How Much Should We Trust Difference-In-Differences Estimates?}, journal = {Quarterly Journal of Economics}, volume = ...

I'm guessing you have a TeX distribution with an older version of fontspec which doesn't yet automatically run the option Ligatures=TeX when executing \setmainfont. If you change the instruction to \setmainfont[Ligatures=TeX]{Times New Roman} you'll get the typographically appropriate quotation marks and an "en-dash" instead of "--" to denote the range of ...

I do not have the bibliography style you used in your MWE. Do you have a link to the style so that we can use it? So I changed your MWE to show you how you can get the wanted result. The trick is to use the bibliography style unsrt. Then you get the bibliography list in the order of the cite calls. Package filecontents is used to have the bib file and the ...

The original author of achemso, Mats Dahlgren, included various non-standard BibTeX entry types in achemso.bst. When I took over the package and revised for v2.0 these non-standard types were retained: the last release on this major branch was 2008/04/16 v2.2i. The bundle was heavily revised in 2010 to properly support submission to the ACS and to address a ...

As a general rule, in order to produce the bibliography you have to run the bibliography engine (bibtex in your case) after compiling the main document. You get that warning because you didn't run bibtex. In AUCTeX, you can only issue C-c C-c RET, generally AUCTeX is able to suggest the right operation to do force running bibtex with: C-c C-c bibtex RET ...

None of them is correct, the corrected format should be as follows (just an example, which is demonstrate in page 10 of How to Use the IEEEtran BIBTEX Style ). If you want to cite your reference within IEEE standard, you should do it as IEEE required. This is How to Use the IEEEtran BIBTEX Style and the official BibTeX style . Enjoy citing!
