# Bibliographies as a numbered sections in each chapter

Related to my previous question about Latex and Thai language, now I have another one:

How to make bibliography as a section in each chapter (at the last section of each chapter, such as section “1.10 References”)

Can we make it as a section in each chapter, such as 2.15 References for Chapter 2, and 15.18 References for Chapter 15?

Now, no need to think of Thai language. I translate name of books and etc. from Thai to Eng already.

• It looks like all you want now is to have the bibliography heading be a numbered section heading, instead of an unnumbered chapter heading. This should be unrelated to the separation of the bibliography amongst chapters. You can try using \printbibliography[heading=subbibnumbered] (read in the biblatex manual, not tested). – T.

• I need to do something first and I will re-make the bibliography later. If I got something, I will be back to show the result. – Langevin Jun 9 '13 at 13:35

This is how this problem is solved automatically, i.e. without manually entering \begin{refsection} and \end{refsection}. You just have to add \printbibliography at the end of each section.

\begin{filecontents*}{references.bib}
@article{bib1,
author = {Stuart Bennett},
title = {Nicholas Minorsky and the automatic steering of ships},
journal = {Control Systems Magazine, IEEE},
volume = {4},
number = {4},
pages = {10-15},
keywords = {History
Marine-vehicle control
Proportional control},
year = {1984}
}
@article{bib2,
author = {Nicholas Minorsky},
title = {Directional Stability of Automatically Steered Bodies},
journal = {Journal of the American Society for Naval Engineers},
volume = {34},
number = {2},
pages = {280-309},
year = {1922}
}
\end{filecontents*}

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[refsection=section,backend=bibtex]{biblatex}
\begin{document}
\section{Introduction}
Hi~\cite{bib1}.
\printbibliography
\section{Main}
Hi~\cite{bib3}.
\printbibliography
\end{document}


This code uses natbib and bibunit packages:

\begin{filecontents*}{references.bib}
@article{bib1,
author = {Stuart Bennett},
title = {Nicholas Minorsky and the automatic steering of ships},
journal = {Control Systems Magazine, IEEE},
volume = {4},
number = {4},
pages = {10-15},
keywords = {History
Marine-vehicle control
Proportional control},
year = {1984}
}
@article{bib2,
author = {Nicholas Minorsky},
title = {Directional Stability of Automatically Steered Bodies},
journal = {Journal of the American Society for Naval Engineers},
volume = {34},
number = {2},
pages = {280-309},
year = {1922}
}
\end{filecontents*}

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[sectionbib]{natbib}

\usepackage{bibunits}
\begin{document}

\section{Introduction}
\begin{bibunit}[plainnat]
Hi~\cite{bib1}.
\putbib[references]
\end{bibunit}

\section{Main}
\begin{bibunit}[chicago]
Hi~\cite{bib2}.
\putbib[references]
\end{bibunit}
\end{document}

1. Instead of chicago or plainnat, you can use whatever style of your choice.
2. Delete the whole block from \begin{filecontents*}... to \end{filecontents}.
3. Change \putbib[references] and replace references with your own .bib file.
4. Instead of running bibtex on your main file, typeset your file with this order (of course, use whatever engine that is suitable for your choice of packages):
• pdflatex mainfile
• bibtex bu1
• bibtex bu2
• ...
• pdflatex mainfile
• pdflatex mainfile
5. I wasn't familiar with every language-specific details of your example, but this code must be applicable to your case.
• This code made a lot of effect to my code structure. I am trying to re-write some code which will not make a lot of effect to my overall code. – Langevin Jun 8 '13 at 18:34
• Well, you didn't provide any MWE, so I started from scratch using biblatex. If you have any special structure in mind, give an example of provide some details. – Hasan Zakeri Jun 8 '13 at 18:37
• Please click this link (tex.stackexchange.com/questions/113359/latex-and-thai-language) Thank you so much for your response and sorry about that. – Langevin Jun 8 '13 at 18:39
• I will edit my answer. – Hasan Zakeri Jun 8 '13 at 19:07
• This code is so useful to make the reference at the end of each chapter. However, can we make it as a section in each chapter, such as 1.15 References for Chapter 1, and 15.18 References for Chapter 15? – Langevin Jun 9 '13 at 1:30
