I need to prepare a separate abstract file without the list of references. However, I do have some citations in the abstract and I want them to be resolved, but without producing the list of refs in the end. Is there any solution?

Thanks - Baskaran

  • i do hope you're using a bibliography style that provides more than just a number or a key. those are most uninformative without suitable context. – barbara beeton Jul 12 '13 at 20:43
  • A decidedly low-tech way to go is to place the \bibliography{somebibfile} at the very end of the document (starting on a new page) and to leave off the page(s) taken up by the bibliography... – Mico Jul 13 '13 at 2:25
  • @Mico: yeah that's what I did so far. Heiko's solution solved it. – baskaran Jul 13 '13 at 6:20
  • @barbara: yeah, my style gives the name of the first author and year and so it is fine. – baskaran Jul 13 '13 at 6:22

Standard LaTeX writes the data of \bibitem via \immediate\write into the .aux file. This allows putting the bilbiography in a box that is never used:

Hello World \cite{foobar}.

\bibitem{foobar} Foo bar.
