I'm trying to have two different styles for two different bibliographies in a same document using biblatex. I'm using the keyword procedure two create those two bibliography and I found a way to define a new bibenvironement with the command \defbibenvironment and then use the command \printbibliography[env=newenvrionment, keyword=blabla].

I'm using the authoryear style for the main bibliography so I'm using those options when I charge the package:

\usepackage[language=auto,backend=biber,sorting=nyt,bibstyle=authoryear,citestyle=authortitle-icomp]{biblatex}

The propose if to define a "primary sources" environment, similar to the first one but instead of showing:

author (year) title, in journal,

I want to have:

journal (year) title, author.

I am very new in using biblatex and I don't understand how to do such a thing by using \defbibenvironment.

Otherwise, if there is another solution to use here is a compilable MWE:

I want the second bibliography to be with the journal (date) title environment. It's using only articles.

    You can't do that with \defbibenvironment. Before you print your second bibliography you have to modify the bibliography driver for the entry type article (standard.bbx) – or whatever entry type you want to modify. Do you just have articles? If you want help, you should also provide a full compilable MWE.

  • I'm drawing on this topic: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/10104/… It seems that the solution was working. My problem is just that the "nolabelbib" environment proposed is not the one I need. But it's actually using \defbibienvironment

As I wrote in the comment it's not possible to use a bibenvironment for your purpose, since bibenvironments are ment to format the bibliography list.

Also biblatex doesn't provide an implemented solution to mix different bibliography styles (as far as I know), so you have to try to find a way on your own to achieve what you want.

My solution:

  1. Choose a default bibliography style (authoryear in your case)
  2. Create drivers and macros which will differ from the default bibliography style (bibdriver for article and author-macro in your case)
  3. Create and implement a toggle, with which you can switch between the default bibliography style and your new macros.

This solution will (adapted) also work for more than 2 bibliography styles.

However, the weak point is, you have to take care of every difference to your default bibliography style – and in the case you want to change your default bibliography style you have to start over...


Here is your updated and commented MWE. I've deleted a lot of unnecessary (for our issue) macros / packages. It should show you the idea of my solution.

In addition to the MWE you may modify the new macros and also set up a sorting option in the \printbibliography command etc.
