This question already has an answer here:

How do I add a mark (asterisk/dagger) to a particular bib entry, based on a keyword? For example consider the bib file:

    author  = {J. Doe},
    title   = {Lorem Ipsum -- Part I},
    journal = {J. Dolor Sit Am.},
    volume  = {1},
    pages   = {1--10},
    month   = {1},
    year    = {2012},
    keywords = {invited},

    author  = {J. Doe},
    title   = {Lorem Ipsum -- Part II},
    journal = {J. Dolor Sit Am.},
    volume  = {2},
    pages   = {11--20},
    month   = {2},
    year    = {2012},

and the tex file:

\usepackage[backend=biber, sorting=nty, style=authoryear]{biblatex}

\printbibliography[title=Articles, prefixnumbers=A., type=article]

which will produce an output like:

[A.1] J. Doe, "Lorem Ipsum ...
[A.2] J. Doe, "Lorem Ipsum ...

Now how can I design a filter or otherwise, that will look for the presence of invited in a keyword and then produce an output like

[A.1]* J. Doe, "Lorem Ipsum ...
[A.2] J. Doe, "Lorem Ipsum ...

where there is now an asterisk next to the ref item number? This way I can easily place a footnote to indicate which references were invited articles.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Have a look at tex.stackexchange.com/a/103862/16895. If you want to use a keyword use \renewbibmacro*{begentry}{\ifkeyword{invited}{*\addspace}{}} – Guido May 8 '13 at 4:05
  • @Guido Thanks, and what should I do to place the asterisk on the citation number (as in my example above) instead of before the text? – Lorem Ipsum May 8 '13 at 13:46
  • or perhaps mark those citation numbers in a different color... – Lorem Ipsum May 8 '13 at 13:55
  • A possibility would be \renewbibmacro*{begentry}{\ifkeyword{invited}{\hspace{-\biblabelsep}\makebox[\biblabelsep][l]{*}}{}} or one has to define how labels are printed (including the same if conditions redefining) \defbibenvironment. – Guido May 8 '13 at 15:03
