Suppose you have two fully finished thesis, with their own bibliography and their own appendices. When I include one into the other, there is (obviously) some interference between the two different bibliographies and two different appendices.

So my question is: what is the optimal solution so that I get only one bibliography and one appendix. Also, I would like the included file to consist of one large section with subsections and not as it is at the moment, which is: each sections of the included file gets a section of its own.

Happy for any advice.

  • You might need to give more information about the structure of your documents, a latex document can only have one \documentclass so you can't include or input one in to another. If each document consists of \including a list of separate section files, you can of course make a combined document but including the combined set of sections, but without knowing the structure it is not possible to say much. – David Carlisle Sep 18 '13 at 15:53
  • Voted to reopen. Not a duplicate of tex.stackexchange.com/questions/246/…, in spite of the misleading title, that should be something like How to combine two complete theses in a document?, since neither \input nor \include solve the real question. – Fran Sep 19 '13 at 2:55

As David Carlisle said, it is not possible say much with the actual information, but I suspect that you are looking for the combine class and the packages combinet, combnat and combcite.

With texdoc combine you will obtain all the information of what you need at this respect.

If this is not exactly what you want, take a look also to the packages docmute and standalone (the package, not the document class!).
