This question already has an answer here:

I have a bibliography entry which shows up in my .bib file as

    author = {Weber, H F},
    journal = {Sitzungsberichte der Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin},
    pages = {809--815},
    title = {{Das W\"{a}rmeleitungsverm\"{o}gen der tropfbaren Fl\"{u}ssigkeiten}},
    year = {1885}

However when I compile this the entry shows the authors name as ----- instead of H F Weber (as shown in the picture). I have no idea what to do, however, it does seem to be linked to another article in my .bib file which is:

  author = {Weber, H F},
  journal = {Annalen der Physik und Chemie},
  number = {5},
  title = {{Untersuchungen \"{u}ber die W\"{a}rmeleitung in Fl\"{u}ssigkeiten}},
  volume = {10},
  year = {1880}

In the .bbl file the same reference shows up as:

   ------, ``{Das W\"{a}rmeleitungsverm\"{o}gen der tropfbaren Fl\"{u}ssigkeiten},'' \emph{Sitzungsberichte der Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin}, vol.~1, pp. 809--815, 1885.

Hence why I see the result I see in the bibliography... Has anyone come across this or have a solution?

Cheers Bibliography problem

    do you use a verbose-bibstyle? then maybe set dashed=false in your config: \usepackage[style=verbose,dashed=false]. If not, please provide a fully compilable MWE. – musicman Jun 11 '14 at 19:08

    It's a common abbreviation used in bibliographies. It means 'ditto'. The author is omitted because it's the same as the immediately previous entry. – John Wickerson Jun 11 '14 at 19:09
  • John, Is there a way around this abbreviation? @musicman, what package is this associated with? (\usepackage[style=verbose,dashed=false]) – Magiclamarshmallow Jun 12 '14 at 11:43

    if you're not using the biblatex package you shouldn't tag your question with biblatex... – musicman Jun 12 '14 at 12:16
