# Can someone identify the bibliography style in this paper?

I really love the citation and bibliography style in this paper: http://www.aaai.org/Papers/IJCAI/2007/IJCAI07-243.pdf but can't find the style; the aaai one itself (which I thought it might be) doesn't seem to have the square brackets in the bibliography.

• Welcome on tex.SE. Did you consider to mail the authors themselves? They will know the answer. – Dominikus K. Apr 4 '13 at 15:35
• I wanted to pick the brains of the community first in case someone already knew – Matuku Apr 4 '13 at 16:02
• author of your example might have tweaked the AAAI authors toolkit version. @DominikusK meta welcome toolkit is here – texenthusiast Apr 4 '13 at 16:12

It is the named style.

Given the location of the example pdf, you can find a template for the document here. Using this template with

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{ijcai13}

\begin{document}
\cite{StGu92,MuBeBoRo99}
\bibliographystyle{named}
\bibliography{test}
\end{document}


gives

If you only want to use the citation/referencing part of the template, use it with

\documentclass{article}

\makeatletter
\def\leftcite{\@up[}\def\rightcite{\@up]}

\def\cite{\def\citeauthoryear##1##2{\def\@thisauthor{##1}%
\ifx \@lastauthor \@thisauthor \relax \else##1, \fi ##2}\@icite}
\def\shortcite{\def\citeauthoryear##1##2{##2}\@icite}

\def\citeauthor{\def\citeauthoryear##1##2{##1}\@nbcite}
\def\citeyear{\def\citeauthoryear##1##2{##2}\@nbcite}

% internal macro for citations with [] and with breaks between citations
% used in \cite and \shortcite
\def\@icite{\leavevmode\def\@citeseppen{-1000}%
\def\@cite##1##2{\leftcite\nobreak\hskip 0in{##1\if@tempswa , ##2\fi}\rightcite}%

\def\@nbcite{\leavevmode\def\@citeseppen{1000}%
\def\@cite##1##2{{##1\if@tempswa , ##2\fi}}%
\@ifnextchar [{\@tempswatrue\@citex}{\@tempswafalse\@citex[]}}

% don't box citations, separate with ; and a space
% also, make the penalty between citations a parameter,
% it may be a good place to break
\def\@citex[#1]#2{%
\def\@lastauthor{}\def\@citea{}%

% raise the brackets in bibliography labels

• I thought that too, but that also doesn't have the square brackets – Matuku Apr 4 '13 at 16:01
• @Matuku It does when used as requested. – mafp Apr 4 '13 at 16:17
• Ah, didn't notice the additional instructions. It's very close now but in the paper multiple citations are separated by a semi-colon. Where in the bst would this be so I can change it? – Matuku Apr 4 '13 at 16:44
• @Matuku: The comma is set by LaTeX and not BibTeX. – Marco Daniel Apr 4 '13 at 17:18
