As the title suggests I would like to reference papers in my bib file but I dont want those references to appear at the end of my document. How could this be achieved?

    Have you tried leaving \printbibliography out? I don't know, if this works, but give it a try. Btw. you should give us more information about what you want to do. What is the value of a citation without reference? – LaRiFaRi Apr 15 '14 at 7:04
  • As its stands it is really hard to answer your question because it lacks basic information about what system you use to obtain a bibliography. Please provide a MWE indicating what "cite"/"bib" packages you use (e.g. natbib, cite, biblatex to name but a few), what style you use (maybe not that important here) etc. – moewe Apr 15 '14 at 7:09

From your previous question I assume you're using a normal BibTeX bibliography, so the solution is to use the package bibentry


and use the command \nobibliography instead of \bibliography.

The package also provides a command \bibentry to print the whole bibliography entry without printing the bibliography.

MWE (borrowed from your previous question):




  title={Neural networks for note onset detection in piano music},
  author={Marolt, Matija and Kavcic, Alenka and Privosnik, Marko},
  booktitle={Proceedings of the International Computer Music Conference},



Here I want to cite \cite{marolt2002neural} but I don't want the bibliography to be printed.

This is the complete entry:
