How to change font variant of title to italics?

Currently only books have titles in italics but misc, article and booklet have normal font variant.

I'm using plain BIBTeX style.


copy the file plain.bst to plain-new.bst and then replace the title.format strings with title.bformat in all FUNCTION, beginning with article. but not in the FUNCTION {format.title}.

Alternatively you can change the FUNCTION {format.title} to

FUNCTION {format.title}
{ title empty$
    { "" }
    { title "t" change.case$ emphasize}

For a book title the case of the letters is not change, the reason why in FUNCTION {format.btitle} is no change.case function.

Save the plain-new.bst first in your documents directory and choose \bibliographystyle{plain-new} for testing.
