This is my first question on TeX.SX. I am currently using the ShareLatex AIP template to produce a journal article.

I have modified and customized some elements of this project's main TeX file and class file. There are a few files in the project, including the BibTex file. My main problems lie within the bibliography and citation sections. I want to obtain a bibliography in-text citation numerically with a superscript and square brackets also, so in other words, a square bracket superscript numerical citation, like 3, but in superscript. How would I achieve this?

Furthermore, I want to completely modify the reference section. I do not like the formatting at all. I would like to get rid of the quotes that surround every title.

Instead of this:

A. Gusnanto, H. Wood, Y. Pawitan, P. Rabbitts, and S. Berri, "Correcting for cancer genome size and tumourcell content enables better estimation of copy number alterations from next-generation sequence data," Phys. Rev.28, 262 (2012).

I want it to look like this:

Gusnanto, A., Wood, H., Pawitan, Y., Rabbitts, P., and Berri, S. Correcting for cancer genome size and tumourcell content enables better estimation of copy number alterations from next-generation sequence data. Phys. Rev. 28, 262 (2012).

I am attaching a MWE for the project.

I am completely new to LaTex. Please excuse my lack of knowledge or ignorance, for I am only a high school junior.

Also my MWE has some formatting errors (namely with the new column starting in the reference section)

This is my aipsamp.bib

This is my aipsamp.tex

This is revtex4-1.cls

Thanks for any help! Believe me, I have already spent 6 grueling unproductive hours trying to make it work, so ANY help is greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to TeX.SE! I've converted the various inactive links into active hyperlinks. – Mico Nov 29 '13 at 20:35
  • I couldn't tell if you've loaded the tex template that loads the natbib package. If you did, you could get superscripted citation numbers (plain, not encased in square brackets) by supplying the option [super] when loading the package. To get a bibliography style that's a quite close (but not perfectly so) to the style you wish to get, consider issuing the command \bibliographystyle{apalike}. – Mico Nov 29 '13 at 21:29
  • Thanks Mico, I was always able to get the superscript (without square brackets, and for my purposes, I don't think it is necessary to include square brackets in the citation). However, when I look at the bibliography the number is in superscript there also. That's fine, but is there anyway to change its size? The second problem I stated in my original question I think I will be able to solve by creating my own .bst file. Thanks! – user41912 Nov 30 '13 at 1:19
