\begin{document}

\printbibliography[category=cited,check=noThinking,prenote={JoPE},title={Bibliography excluding articles in \emph{Thinking: The Journal of Philosophy for Children}}]

\end{document}

and this bibliography entry in thesis.bib

@article{Allhoff2005,
author = {Allhoff, Fritz},
file = {:Users/study\_mini/Documents/Mendeley Desktop/Allhoff - 2005 - A Defense of Torture Separation of Cases, Ticking Time-bombs, and Moral Justification.pdf:pdf},
journal = {International Journal of Applied Philosophy},
keywords = {ch5},
mendeley-tags = {ch5},
number = {2},
pages = {243--264},
title = {{A Defense of Torture: Separation of Cases, Ticking Time-bombs, and Moral Justification}},
volume = {19},
year = {2005}
}
@inbook{1Almond2010,
    year={2010},
    Crossref = {9BaileyHandbook2010},
    booktitle={The Sage Handbook of Philosophy of Education},
    title={The Value of Knowledge},
    author={Brenda Almond},
    chapter={20},
    pages={297--306}    

I get in my bibliography:

volume.number, pp. ...

I wish to remove the comma after number but deleting \addcomma does not make any difference to the final output. Do I need a \renewcommand instead or a tweak to my existing code?

  • Hi! Please make your code compilable, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. That may seem tedious to you, but think of the extra work it represents for TeX.SX users willing to help you. Help them help you: remove that one hurdle between you and a solution to your problem.

  • @DGarside Add the following to you preamble if you want to replace the punctuation in front of the page numbers by a space: \renewcommand*{\bibpagespunct}{\addspace} Naturally you can also remove the space or use a different separator. Note that your example is not exactly minimal, and it also does not compile in the present form. Among other things, the prenote={JoPE} does not compile, you don't cite any of the references and Crossref = {9BaileyHandbook2010} is not provided. Nov 26, 2013 at 16:46

You only need one line

\renewcommand*{\bibpagespunct}{\addspace}

This tells biblatex to only put a space right before the pages, no other punctuation.

You can force this for @articles only by using

\renewcommand*{\bibpagespunct}{%
  \ifentrytype{article}
    {\addspace}
    {\addcomma\space}}
