I'm writing my thesis and I have a problem with my references. My supervisor asked me that it should be like this:

Author, title, journal, year (in bold), volume pp. xx-xx

Instead of what i got: Author, title, journal, volume, pp. xx-xx, year.

An actual MWE:


   author = "Nobody Jr",
   title  = "My Article",
   year   = "2006"

    Can you call which style sheet you are using? Do you use the packages natbib, biblatex or similar? – strpeter Jan 23 '14 at 15:17

    You maybe want to change the MWE such that it better consistent with your statement. – strpeter Jan 23 '14 at 22:31
  • Maybe i'm not getting it right but this doesn't change my final pdf. The year is still at the end of the reference, so like before – user44450 Jan 24 '14 at 8:29
  • The idea of a MWE is to give a short example of the issue you faced (as you do not have a solution jet)... Otherwise you could already write an answer below. ;) But please improve the example above in your sense - I do not want to dictate you anything. Its your proper question. – strpeter Jan 24 '14 at 10:04
