I'm writing a PhD thesis with


I would like to highlight the papers written by me by using, only for them, a different bibliography style as in the following example:

[1] Reference 1

[2] Reference 2


[Atz13] My reference 1

[Atz14] My reference 2


Is this possible to implement?

  • Can you add a complete (minimal) compilable example to play with? – egreg Apr 1 '14 at 10:07

Since you edit your dissertation only once in its final format, you can resort to the inelegant solution of compiling your bibliography with bibtex, but editing the bbl file before the final compilations of the document.

For your example above, you would simply add the desired labels [Atz13] and [Atz14] in the \bibitem declarations of your own papers. Then comment out calls to bibtex, and insert the concents of your bbl file instead. Compile twice.

    Maybe copy the contents of yourfile.bbl into the master document, since there is no reason to keep it in a seperate file when this solution is used. – Kristian Apr 1 '14 at 13:12

  • Looks like the sanest solution for an essentially one-shot job. – vonbrand Jun 2 '14 at 4:11
