# Numerical AND Author-year modes for cites in the same file

I want to use two ways to cite references in the same file. One numerical, and another one in the author-year style. I also want that only the numerical references appear at the end of the document in the "References", and the author-year references do not appear.

Example:

This cite will be in the references [1], but not this other one [Doe14].

References

[1] Nice Author, "Nice article", 2000

As a variant, I may want to write the author-year references in the middle of the text:

This cite will be in the references [1], and this one within the text of the document [Doe14].

• [Doe14] Jon Doe, "Messing up with bibtex", 2014

More text in the document here before the numeric bibliography.

References

[1] Nice Author, "Nice article", 2000

• How is the reader supposed to know which bib entry belongs to [DOE14] if only numbers are in the bibliography? Maybe you are just looking for something like \textcite{bibKey} from the biblatex package? – Johannes_B Jan 30 '14 at 14:41
• I am preparing an application file for a job, and my articles are already in my CV, so I want to cite them just as [DC-xx], and to put only other authors' articles in the references. The second variant will be to use bibtex somehow to write my articles in the CV section, but I can do this by hand. I will take a look at that package. Thanks. – Alejandro DC Jan 30 '14 at 14:45

I am not sure if this is a good idea; having two different styles for citations might be confusing and it is not a good practice. However, seeing the comments to the question, it seems to be required, so below there's a solution:

\begin{filecontents*}{aabcde.bib}
@BOOK{Carey,
AUTHOR="G. V. Carey",
TITLE="Mind the Stop: A Brief Guide to Punctuation",
PUBLISHER="Penguin", YEAR="1958"}

@BOOK{Cooper,
AUTHOR="Bruce M. Cooper",
TITLE="Writing Technical Reports",
PUBLISHER="Penguin", YEAR="1964"}

@BOOK{Gowers,
AUTHOR="Sir Ernest Gowers",
TITLE="The Complete Plain Words",
PUBLISHER="Penguin", YEAR="1954"}

@BOOK{Hart,
AUTHOR="Horace Hart",
TITLE="[Hart's] Rules for Compositors and Readers
[at the Oxford University Press]",
PUBLISHER="Oxford University Press",
EDITION="39", YEAR="1983"}
(but first published in 1893)
\end{filecontents*}

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{multibib}

\newcites{auyear}{Secondary Literature}
\newsavebox\mybox

\begin{document}
\cite{Gowers}, \citeauyear{Carey}, \cite{Hart}, \citeauyear{Cooper}

\bibliographystyle{plain}
\bibliography{aabcde}

\bibliographystyleauyear{alpha}
\begin{lrbox}{\mybox}
\noindent\parbox{\textwidth}{\bibliographyauyear{aabcde}}
\end{lrbox}

\end{document}


The idea is to use the multibib package to define a secondary bibliography (the one with author-year labels that will not be printed). This secondary bibliography is defined with

\newcites{auyear}{Secondary Literature}


and will have alph style. You produce the citations for items in this bibliography using \citeauyear{<key>}.

The actual secondary bibliography is never printed since it's stored in a box that is never used.

If your document is called mydoc.tex, you process the document using

pdflatex mydoc
bibtex mydoc
bibtex auyear
pdflatex mydoc
pdflatex mydoc
