# Using bibentry to insert reference in text and omit the list of references at the end

I am using bibentry package to insert references in the text of the document. This is a CV and the references are my own publications. I want to remove the bibliography listed at the end of the document. So far, I have had no success. Here is an example .tex file:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{natbib}
\usepackage{bibentry}

\begin{document}

\nobibliography*

Some text here. My publications:
\begin{itemize}
\item \bibentry{pub1}
\item \bibentry{pub2}
\end{itemize}

Some other text.

\bibliographystyle{plain}
\bibliography{my_pubs}

\end{document}

• @Closers Why would this question be a duplicate of the linked one? Nov 8, 2013 at 17:11
• I agree with @karlkoeller; the linked question wants a bibliography at the end whereas this one wants to remove it. Nov 8, 2013 at 17:32
• @karlkoeller, I added a comment to your solution. Thanks. Nov 11, 2013 at 14:10

You are misusing the package bibentry.

When you DON'T want the bibliography to be printed you have to use \nobibliography{my_pubs} instead of \nobibliography* \bibliography{my_pubs} in this way:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{natbib}
\usepackage{bibentry}

\begin{document}

\bibliographystyle{plain}
\nobibliography{my_pubs}

Some text here. My publications:
\begin{itemize}
\item \bibentry{pub1}
\item \bibentry{pub2}
\end{itemize}

Some other text.

\end{document}


I wanted both the list of references and the \bibentry tag to work. @karlkoeller's answer didn't work for me, but this did:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{natbib}
\usepackage{bibentry}

\begin{document}

\bibliographystyle{plain}
\nobibliography*{my_pubs}

Some text here. My publications:
\begin{itemize}
\item \bibentry{pub1}
\item \bibentry{pub2}
\end{itemize}

Some other text.
\bibliography*{my_pubs}
\end{document}

• I think \nobibliography* takes no argument, and \bibliography should be unstarred. See the bibentry documentation for full details: gking.harvard.edu/files/bibentry2.pdf
