I'm using biblatex in a document with the verbose-trad1 style. The problem is that I need to put the Journal Title in the bibliography between brackets. I've just found a way to avoid the Journal Title to be in italics : \DeclareFieldFormat{journaltitle}{#1} But no way to adapt in to put the title between brackets....

I hope my request is clear enough !


  • \DeclareFieldFormat{journaltitle}{\mkbibbrackets{#1}}? – moewe May 17 '14 at 13:22
  • WOW! that was fast and works great !!!! Thanks ! – LuCouto May 17 '14 at 13:27

Just put


in your preamble.

Note in particular that internally for biblatex there is no field journal, there is only journaltitle. In the .bib file you may use either journal or journaltitle, but both get resolved to journaltitle by Biber (or BibTeX).

  • you saved my life...I was doing the craziest things with my bib-file to redeclare and whatever. I needed it non-italic, but it's the same. I forgot the *title part I just wrote \DeclareFieldFormat{journal}{\textsf{#1}} to try to make the article journal-field not italic. Solution: \DeclareFieldFormat{journaltitle}{\textsf{#1}} – Yannic Apr 24 '18 at 2:19
