I an confused by the vast BibTeX bibliography styles available in LyX. I can't find the style that fits the requirements of my university.

I currently use the "natbib" citation style, and the "plainnat" bibliography style. The citations in my document are author-year style (which is good), but the bibliographic entires containe full hyperlinks and DOI numbers (which is against my university policy).

I tried to switch from "plainnat" to "plain" or to other styles in the LyX menu, but it appeared to be incompatible with the "author-year" style.

How can I find the style that allows both author-year and removing the links?

  • Are you trying to omit the contents of fields such as url and doi entirely, or "just" the hyperlink aspects of these fields? Please advise.

  • @Mico I want to entirely omit the contents of the url and doi fields. And I don't want to change the .bib file itself because I use the same file in other projects. Oct 16 '13 at 14:40

    Please see the answer to the recent posting, Omitting fields in Bibliography. It also deals with instructing BibTeX to omit various fields such as doi, isbn, etc. The person who posted the query is, like you, a user of the plainnat bibliography style.

  • You can also use biblatex which makes it easier. Oct 16 '13 at 15:39

    I have no experiences with LyX. However biber is the official backend of biblatex. Oct 17 '13 at 19:05
