I would like to use a bibliography style that aligns the text of the second and later lines of each reference entry with the text of the first. I have been using \bibliographystyle{apalike} but, as can be seen from in image below, the text of each line is not aligned. Which styles will achieve this? Thanks...

To remove the hanging indentation, you needn't change bibliography styles. Just set the \bibhang length parameter to zero.

Assuming the Alziary et al entry is in a file called adk.bib, running latex, bibtex, and latex twice more on the MWE below results in the following output:

Remark: You should encase the words "P.D.E.", "Asian", and "Analytical" in the title field in curly braces to prevent them from being converted to lowercase.

  • Should this also work when using \usepackage[numbers]{natbib}? I still have the indentation mentioned in the question.

  • Hi there. I did exactly the same thing as @Mico suggested, but the second line still did not align at the first line. I used separated bib file for each chapter. Any suggestions?
