I am writing a document with loads of references using
bibtex. However, I want to change the style of how latex layouts the references in the document. Currently it looks like:
 Reference 1  Reference 2
What I want to achieve are the following adjustments:
- Remove brackets
[ ]from the reference numbering
- Enlarge distance between all references
- Add additional space between the reference number and the reference itself.
The result should look like:
1 Reference 1 2 Reference 2
I am new to LaTeX and when I googled for enlarging the space between the references I found solutions for
biblatex rather than
bibtex. Thus, I tried to get biblatex running and even though it looks not too difficult I never succeeded. Therefore, I was wondering whether one can achieve my wanted adjustments using
bibtex or is t preferable to use
biblatex? Furthermore, I want to change the style of how the references are printed. I haven't yet tried all of the available styles for
biblatex seem to have many more features for that. However, it looks pretty difficult to adjust everything by hand.
