I'm using the bibliography style file "elsarticle-num.bst" for Elsevier (link is here). I'd like to include the DOI for journal articles but when I compile there is no space between the title and "doi:". For example it will say:

W. Cornelius, L. W. Huellmantel, H. R. Mitchell, Ammonia as an engine fueldoi:10.4271/650052.

How do I add a space? The BST file is opaque at best. Thanks.

The entry itself:

@ARTICLE{Cornelius1965, 
   author = {Cornelius, Walter and Huellmantel, L. William and Mitchell, Harry R.}, 
   title = {Ammonia as an Engine Fuel}, 
   year = {1965}, 
   month = {Feb}, 
   doi = {10.4271/650052}, 
   owner = {em793}, 
   publisher = {SAE International}, 
   timestamp = {2014.03.14} 
} 
  • Please post the bib entry in question. – Mico Mar 14 '14 at 19:35
  • From the DOI itself: @ARTICLE{Cornelius1965, author = {Cornelius, Walter and Huellmantel, L. William and Mitchell, Harry R.}, title = {Ammonia as an Engine Fuel}, year = {1965}, month = {Feb}, doi = {10.4271/650052}, owner = {em793}, publisher = {SAE International}, timestamp = {2014.03.14} } – Eric Morgan Mar 14 '14 at 19:36
  • Thanks for this follow-up. I've taken the liberty of copying the information into the body of the posting, where it'll be more easily seen by readers. – Mico Mar 14 '14 at 19:41

I suspect the problem arises because there is no journal given, which is expected to come after the title in an ARTICLE entry. Cite it as a book (which is how Google Scholar provides it, as you can see at the search results by choosing "Cite" and "Import into BibTeX".)

  • Good catch that the entry isn't an article published in a journal! Should @book not be correct, maybe @misc will do. – Mico Mar 14 '14 at 19:54
  • By the way, when I try to follow the link you've provided, I get a "403. That's an error" message. – Mico Mar 14 '14 at 19:59
  • @Kundor- You were correct. The example that I provided was listed as an article, but is actually more of a Tech Report. When I switched the entry type in JabRef, the problem went away. Many thanks! – Eric Morgan Mar 14 '14 at 20:09
  • @Mico: Thanks for letting me know. The link persists in working for me, but I guess I'm special! Hopefully linking to the search results works. – Nick Matteo Mar 14 '14 at 20:35
