Footnotes with full bibliography information

I would like to add footnotes, with the text of the .bib file, not only the name of the cite. Found some solutions using jurabib, but my other packages aren't compatible. How could I fix this?

My tex file:

    \documentclass[]{report}
\usepackage{times}
\usepackage[dutch]{babel}
\usepackage{cite}
\usepackage{comment}
\usepackage[hidelinks]{hyperref} %Makes Table of Contents clickable

\begin{document}

\includecomment{comment} %change exclude to include for showing in pdf too

% Article top matter
\title{X}
\author{XX}
\date{\today}
\maketitle

\tableofcontents

%Begin text

Text\footnote{name1} more text

%End text

\bibliography{pws}{}
\bibliographystyle{plain}

\end{document}


My bib file:

    @misc{name1,
author = "Name, Name",
title = "",
date = "17-05-2014",
howpublished = "conference"
}

• The question is missing a lot of detail in terms of what you want the final product to look like. It is hard to provide a detailed answer without this information. – cslstr May 25 '14 at 18:53

You can do this type of thing with biblatex. The code below uses backend=bibtex option, so you still do the latex>bibtex>latex>latex compile routine. (Though more options are available for bibliographies when using the newer biber backend.)

You don't mention requirements for numbering and/or still printing these citations in a bibliography at the end of the document. Thus, this is a basic version that illustrates how to get started.

biblatex provides the \footcite command that allows you to also specify text to go before or after the citation itself: \footcite[<prenote>][<postnote>]{<key>}. See more in the documentation (\footcite appears on page 80).

\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@misc{name1,
author = "Name, Name",
title = "",
date = "17-05-2014",
howpublished = "conference"
}
\end{filecontents}

\documentclass[]{report}
\usepackage{times}
\usepackage[dutch]{babel}
%\usepackage{cite} % Not compatible with biblatex
\usepackage{comment}
\usepackage[backend=bibtex,citestyle=verbose-ibid]{biblatex}
\addbibresource{\jobname.bib}
\usepackage[hidelinks]{hyperref} %Makes Table of Contents clickable

\begin{document}

Text\footcite[See][pages 1--2]{name1} more text

\printbibliography

\end{document}


Footnote citation looks like this:
