I don't know why this was never answered. But for reference, in case anyone else sees this. When you do Insert --> List/ToC --> BibTeX bibliography, you get this window: The \bibliographystyle is chosen by the Style drop-down menu. Choose the one you want from the list. There is no style called alphaabbrv in the list, but alpha does something like what ...

You didn't tell us which document class you use. So I will add here two possibilities: one for KOMA-Script, one for class article. I put both together in the following MWE, please just change the document class and move the comment signs. KOMA-Script: In the documentation scrguide.pdf, page 92 (German, you seems to be a German) you will find ...

As mentioned in comments, to use the macro \citet, you need to load the natbib package. For details on how to use that package and the macros it provides, you may refer to its manual/documentation at texdoc.net or from the command prompt/terminal type texdoc natbib in your computer. Further, you have to use and to separate the author names instead of comma. ...

If you use biblatex and bibtex you have to add option backend=bibtex to biblatex. And you should define a style you want to use to layout the resulting bibliography, for example style=alphabetic. So with the following MWE (package filecontents is only used to have bib file and TeX code in one compilable MWE; see main changes in tex code marked with ...

You need to tell biber how to sort the entries, see biblatex - Sort cites via number (split bibliography) \documentclass{article} \usepackage[style=numeric,citestyle=numeric-comp,sorting=ynt,defernumbers=true,backend=biber]{biblatex} \DeclareSourcemap{ \maps[datatype=bibtex]{ \map{ \pertype{article} \step[fieldset=presort, fieldvalue = {A}] ...

Here’s an example for the usage of \deffootnotemark. While version A is maybe more like what you want, I’d prefer version B since there’s no reason to make the numbers as subscript. They are more visible as normal figures … \documentclass{scrartcl} % \deffootnote[mark width]{indent}{parindent}{definition of mark} % A \deffootnote[1em]{1em}{1em}{% ...

The ISO 690 Wikipedia page claims that this standard concerns the required elements, or inputs, of a bibliographic reference, and that it is not concerned with the formatting of the typeset output. If this information is correct, it doesn't make much sense to talk about an ISO690-compliant BibTeX or biblatex style: Just about all BibTeX and biblatex styles ...

Not a direct answer but rather a pointer to a possible route to a solution. Last year I developed a BibTeX style for a book catalogue bookdb.bst which involved extending one of the regular BibTeX files. Run texdoc bookdb to view the User Manual and possibly read bookdb.bst if you want the gory internal details. The User Manual doesn't describe the internal ...

Something like this? \documentclass{article} \usepackage{cite} \renewcommand\citeleft{} % no opening or closing brackets \renewcommand\citeright{} \usepackage[colorlinks,citecolor=blue]{hyperref} \begin{document} See \cite{ct1}. \begin{thebibliography}{99} \bibitem[The post]{ct1} bkarpuz, Using hyperref for a citation, StackExchange, 2016. ...

Since it's a thesis and therefore an official document, if you want to say that your thesis was done in Latex (and so on), there's the colophon. From Wikipedia: In publishing, a colophon is a brief statement containing information about the publication of a book such as the place of publication, the publisher, and the date of publication. A colophon may ...

If you are using natbib, the option [round] sets the parentheses when you load the package. Try: \usepackage[round]{natbib} There are some other useful options too. See e.g. here.

Does your friend use BibTeX, biblatex, or another tool to create the bibliography? If he uses BibTeX and the natbib citation management package, he could create "aliases" for the citation call-outs: Use \defcitealias{key}{<farsi text string>} to set up the alias, and use \citetalias{key} and \citepalias{key} to generate citation call-outs using the ...

You should load the natbib package with the options round and numbers. Be sure to recompile twice in order to propagate all changes. \RequirePackage{filecontents} \begin{filecontents}{library.bib} % create a dummy entry @misc{Turner-McGrievy2015, author = "A", title = "B", year = 2015} \end{filecontents} \documentclass[12pt,letterpaper]{article} ...

Your objectives aren't entirely clear. As you're using the plain bibliography style, which can only produce numeric-style citation call-outs, there seems to be little point in using \citet, which is a macro provided by the natbib package for the purpose of creating textual-style authoryear citation call-outs. If, on the other hand, you do want to create ...

@Tom. You need to cut the contents of bibliography and paste the same just before the \end{document} environment. Moreover, remove the \printbibliography from the preamble. This can be done as follows. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{cite} \begin{document} \section{Text goes here}. This feature works as I described in \cite{DUMMY:1} ...

That is the whole point of what bibtex does, you could have just one bibtex file for every reference you ever make in every document, and each entry could have every field that you may ever conceivably want to print alongside the reference. bibtex then takes the aux file from the latex run, which tells it which citations are needed, and the bibliography ...

You would probably give the year as 1999 here. That is the version present on that page, the 1991 version cannot even be accessed that way. Like Johannes_B I would have given the advice to use the origdate field for 1991 (this field is ignored by the standard styles). After I had a look at the page in question though, I would not even do that. It is not at ...

The easiest solution is to make biblatex "forget" the last year, so that the year is never omitted if it coincides with the last year. \makeatletter \AtEveryCitekey{\global\undef\cbx@lastyear} \makeatother Does the trick. For real APA style just load biblatex as \usepackage[backend = biber, style = apa, sorting = ...

I don't know of a universal (style-independent) field to indicate whether a book is an ebook or not. Most styles support the note and addendum fields, which you can fill with any text you want. So you could just write epub version there. If you see fit, you could also use the edition field. All the ebooks I wanted to cite so far were pretty much digital ...

You may want to load the natbib citation management package and use that package's \defcitealias macro to define, you guessed it, a "citation alias" of the form "CGAL". Then, use \citetalias{CGAL} instead of \cite{CGAL} to generate a citation call-out that uses the alias. \RequirePackage{filecontents} \begin{filecontents}{mybib.bib} @misc{CGAL, key = ...

A previous answer by Audrey provides a possessive citation command that works with older versions of Biblatex. However, this code does not work in Biblatex 3.3 due to a recent change to the format of \DeclareNameFormat. The following adaptation of Audrey's code (to which I am grateful to PLK for a slight correction) should work with Biblatex 3.3. According ...

Just add the biblatex option sorting=ynt to your biblatex options since sortcites uses the global sorting scheme. This gives you the order you want. If you want different sorting for the actual bibliography list, you can put your \printbibliography inside a \refsection with a different sorting scheme.

The formatting of the names used in the citation call-outs is governed not by the natbib package but by the bibliography style that's in use. I'm assuming that you'll want to show the first names of all authors, rather than just those of of selected authors. While you're at it, I'll also assume that you'd want to show any "junior" name components, if ...

The class bioinfo loads natbib without any options, thus the default format for citation is numeric. An option is to modify how natbib is loaded by the class. Thus one can make a copy of the class file (let us say call my-bioinfo.cls and then edit line 827. The new line 827 should be \RequirePackage[numbers,sort&compress]{natbib}

This style already uses the sorting function. You can edit sort function bib.sort.order in your .bst file. It is very good described on Bibtex .bst file modification to include alphabetical ordering. I hope it will help you.

If found this solution for R (here), which I think is a good solution as well @Manual{ram2010, title = {Mathematica 8.0}, author = {{Wolfram Research Inc.}}, year = {2010}, url = {http://www.wolfram.com}, }
