I am writing my PhD thesis and my supervisor has asked me to append the references at the end of each chapter. However, the template (which I am using) is unable to do so. I have downloaded this template, somewhere from the Internet.

I am using \printbibliography at the end of the chapters but still I can't see any references at the end. As a MWE (Thesis_Template), I am using two chapters with one common reference (Bannerman_2009) and a different reference (Chan05). I can see their proper citation in the text (Please see pg. no. 17 and 19 in main.pdf) but they are not being listed at the end. I am very worried because my professor want chapters for the review but my thesis is still not in the specified format. I am using MiKTeX 2.9 with TeXstudio for compiling the code.

Please explain elaborately, where I am making a mistake or there is some specific order of compiling the code, which I have to follow. Looking forward to your kind and prompt help.

My files are as follows:

%%% Main.tex %%%

\usepackage[style=numeric- comp,bibstyle=numeric,hyperref=true,backref=false,refsection=chapter,sorting=none,abbreviate=true]{biblatex}
\bibliography{main}%%% the bibtex file

%%% Chapter1.tex %%%

\chapter{Example One} 
This is a part of chapter one.~\cite{Bannerman_2009}

%%% Chapter2.tex %%%

\chapter{Example Two} 
Chapter with Nunc vitae placerat ligula.~\cite{Bannerman_2009, Chan05}

%%% main.bib %%%

    Welcome to TeX.sx! Usually, we don't put a greeting or a "thank you" in our posts. While this might seem strange at first, it is not a sign of lack of politeness, but rather part of our trying to keep everything very concise. Upvoting is the preferred way here to say "thank you" to users who helped you. – Guido Apr 20 '13 at 5:27

    Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem directly in the question. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – Guido Apr 20 '13 at 5:34
  • The template works for me. You have to run pdflatex, biber, `pdflatex. – Guido Apr 20 '13 at 5:42

    Which editor do you use. To simplify the compilation steps I recommend arara. As a MikTeX user you have to install arara manually. The order of compilation is pdflatex->biber->pdflatex->pdflatex – Marco Daniel Apr 20 '13 at 9:51

    TeXStudio is like TeXMaker so this one will help you: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/107989/… ... Now you can put the following lines at the begin of you main document: % arara: pdflatex, % arara: biber, % arara: pdflatex, % arara: pdflatex and all needed compilations are done by one compiling klick of arara – Marco Daniel Apr 20 '13 at 10:24
