# Workaround for bibentry when using natbib and pagebackref

I am using natbib and hyperref's pagebackref. Now I also wanted to use bibentry, but I get the error message

File ended while scanning use of \BR@c@bibitem. \par \nobibliography* % For bibentry commands

It seems this is an old bug, as described in https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/comp.text.tex/ZJCRwBhOc5s.

Is there a workaround so that I can add some full references in my text (as with bibentry) but can keep my remaining setup as is, especially keep using natbib and hyperrefs?

Details about relevant parts of my setup:

\usepackage[square]{natbib} %citation style
\usepackage{bibentry}
\usepackage[plainpages=false,
pdftex,
pagebackref,
bookmarks,
pdfstartview=FitV,
pdfpagelabels,
pdfpagemode=UseNone,
a4paper=false,
setpagesize=false]{hyperref}

\begin{document}
\include{introduction}
\backmatter
\bibliographystyle{plainnat}
\bibliography{davef,diss}
\printindex
\end{document}


and in introduction, I use

\nobibliography{davef,diss}
\bibentry{foo}

• Good idea (+1), unfortunately, it's not the same problem: unsrt style does not fix the problem. But omitting pagebackref does. I do want to use pagebackref, however. – DaveBall aka user750378 Jan 24 '14 at 21:05
• You should present a minimal example with a bib entry giving the problem. – egreg Jan 24 '14 at 22:47
