Writing thesis in Math, I use ProTex and citation package called GOST (file gost780s.bst) by Igor Kotelnikov. Problem is when I build PDF, not all the dots after the journal author`s name initials are produced. I have tried to produce bibtex and pdflatex several times, but some citations are not OK.

It looks like: Author, J. Name of work. // JF AuthorOne, JH Author // Journal name - Year....

And I need initials like J.F., J.H.

Is there any PDF editor to put the dots in PDFLatex or a tool for converting MathType embedded equations to a clean Word? I have tried Infty and NitroPDF but results are not perfect.

Thank you, I hope you understand the question and can help

  • instead of editing the PDF you can edit the .bbl file. it is a plain text file and you can open it with any text editor. The .bbl is rewritten every time bibtex is run. – Guido Oct 22 '13 at 4:44

The formatting of the author's names is controlled by the function format.names.rev in the provided bst file.

Currently the function includes the following lines

  %"{f.}{~vv}{~ll}{, jj}" format.name$ 't :=
  "{ff}{~vv}{~ll}{, jj}" format.name$ 't :=

To achieve the desired effect (i.e., initials followed by period) one has to uncomment the first of the above two lines, and comment the second; namely:

  "{f.}{~vv}{~ll}{, jj}" format.name$ 't :=
  %"{ff}{~vv}{~ll}{, jj}" format.name$ 't :=

Finally, it is better to make a copy of the bst file, rename it, modify it and use the new file.
