How can I create this sort of bibliography using biblatex, ie, bibliography at the footer of every page?

Example

    It seems to me that it can be obtained using \footcites (or by setting autocite to footcite) – Guido Oct 21 '13 at 11:36

This is, basically, biblatex's verbose style, plus a few modifications (some of which I've included here; see the manual on how to do the rest):

\documentclass[twocolumn,10pt,DIV=12]{scrartcl}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage[style=verbose]{biblatex}
\addbibresource{biblatex-examples.bib}

\makeatletter
  \deffootnotemark{\textsuperscript{\thefootnotemark})}
  \long\def\@makefntext#1{\leavevmode\quad(\@thefnmark)~\nobreak\relax#1}
\makeatother

\begin{document}
\lipsum*[1]\footcite{companion}
\lipsum*[1]\footcite{moore}
\lipsum*[1]\footcite{iliad}
\lipsum*[1]\footcite{malinowski}
\lipsum*[1]\footcite{wilde}
\end{document} 

enter image description here

PS: what you see in the footnotes is not a bibliography (strictly speaking). It's just the full bibliographic data of each work cited (hence the style's name) -- making a proper bibliography obsolete, or rather an optional favour you may do the reader: \printbibliography.

  • this solution works for scartcl but not with article. it stops on \deffootnotemark as Undefined control sequence. Is it possible to do this in article as well? – novski Oct 20 '17 at 6:14
