I have made a custom .bst file using makebst, but I can't remove the "In" before the booktitle in inproceedings entries. That is, right now my entries read:

..."title." In Proceedings of Conference, ...

but I would like them to read:

..."title." Proceedings of Conference, ...

Is there a way to edit this in the .dbj file, or in my .bst file directly?

  • Do you still have the .dbj file produced by the makebst utility? – Mico Nov 22 '13 at 2:25
  • Can you upload you current branch? – Marco Daniel Nov 22 '13 at 8:54
  • Mico - I do have the .dbj file – Katie R Nov 22 '13 at 21:05
  • Marco - I'm not sure what you mean by branch. – Katie R Nov 22 '13 at 21:06

In your .bst file there should be the following function:

FUNCTION {bbl.in}

{ "in" }

Replace it with:

FUNCTION {bbl.in}

{ "" }

This will remove the "in" in the reference for inproceedings entries.
