# Change period after the title

I will loose my nerves here... Please help me with this crazzy bibtex style code. I want to change my bibtex style file in order to change the dot after the authors and the title with the comma:

H. H. McAdams in A. Arkin. Stochastic mechanisms in gene expression. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 94 (3) 814-819 (1997).

with

H. H. McAdams in A. Arkin, Stochastic mechanisms in gene expression, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 94 (3) 814-819 (1997).

How can I do that on this file https://www.dropbox.com/s/hog42r9fa669uzt/physicsFNM.bst ?

Also I would need to make a Misc or Electronic source which looks like that:

N. FAMILYNAME, TITLE. Pridobljeno DATE iz LINK.

How can I manage to do that?

Thank you very much! Vito

• Can you please provide the .bib entry corresponding to the mentioned work? – Gonzalo Medina Mar 1 '14 at 0:17
• Do you have a special reason for using this style instead of biblatex? – Marco Daniel Mar 1 '14 at 7:54
• @ Gonzalo: Examples are quoted, .bst file is on the dropbox link provided. @ Marvo: Yes, we have specific rules on my faculty so I need specific bib style. And they are very very stricts with the periods and commas. – Vito Mar 1 '14 at 9:00
• When I typeset your example with your .bst file using an @inproceedings entry I do not get the output you quote. Could you provide your .bib entry? – Jeroen Zuiddam Mar 1 '14 at 11:47
• Sorry guys for late respond, you have everything in my answer down below. – Vito Mar 2 '14 at 10:07

The separator is defined under FUNCTION {output.nonnull} in the bst file. Specifically, in your file physicsFNM, locate these lines:

...
FUNCTION {output.nonnull}
{ 's :=
output.state mid.sentence =
{ ", " * write$} { output.state after.block = { add.period$ write$...  The last line (which corresponds to line 83 on your file) should be changed to:  { ", " * write$


which yields:

Hope it helps!

Thanks Alvaro. Additionally I have figured out how to do this code (to get commas everywhere, except at the end): ARTICLE: Change function output.nonnull with:

FUNCTION {output.nonnull}
{ 's :=
output.state mid.sentence =
{ ", " * write$} { output.state after.block = % { add.period$ write${ ", " * write$
newline$"\newblock " write$
}
{ output.state before.all =
'write${ add.period$ " " * write$} if$
}
if$mid.sentence 'output.state := } if$
s
}


Also change the function format.journal.pages with (to get comma before pages):

FUNCTION {format.journal.pages}
{ pages duplicate$empty$ 'pop${ swap$ duplicate$empty$
{ pop$pop$ format.pages }
{
", " *
swap$n.dashify "pages" bibinfo.check * } if$
}
if$}  MISC (electronic source): Change the function misc with this (in order to get"Pridobljeno" in front of note and "iz" in front of howpublished): FUNCTION {misc} { output.bibitem format.authors output title howpublished new.block.checkb format.title output ". Pridobljeno " * write$
format.note output
" iz " * write\$
format.url output
new.block
howpublished new.block.checka
howpublished "howpublished" bibinfo.check output
new.block
format.date output
fin.entry
empty.misc.check
}
