# biblatex citestyle "phys"

I'm new to the biblatex environment and I'm trying desperately to have clean citation in my documents. I want to have something like:

I want to cite this 1

References

1 Author, etc....

I manage to get the right form in the "Reference" section by applying this preamble and more precisely the "phys" style:

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage[backend=bibtex,style=phys]{biblatex}
\addbibresource{bib.bib}


But unfortunately when I set a \cite in my text I get the following form:

I want to cite this [1]

and not the wanted "footnote" formatting as above

Thanks for help and sorry for my poor formatted question.

• Mmmh I see. Your trying to say that this is non standard and I should write a full custom bibliographic style myself ? Oct 22 '14 at 19:42
• The problem with the code proposed in this link is that it adds real footnotes my the references. My wish is only on the citation formatting being like a footnote as shown in the question, not adding footnotes. Oct 22 '14 at 19:52
• Not a whole bib style, but some customisations. It's easier with biblatex than with .bst files. Using \supercite instead of \cite should be enough. Oct 22 '14 at 19:52
• @Thomas Produit: Doesn't \supercite produce a footnote-like number? Oct 22 '14 at 20:05

Use \supercite{mykeyword} or \autocite{mykeyword} (thanks, Joseph Wright!) instead of \cite{mykeyword}.

Example:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\usepackage{garamondx}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage[backend=bibtex,style=phys]{biblatex}
\addbibresource{bib.bib}
\usepackage{filecontents}

\begin{filecontents}{bib.bib}
@BOOK{Lear71,
author = {Lear, Edward},
title = {Nonsense songs, stories, botany, and alphabets},
year = {1871},
publisher = {James R. Osgood and Company},
location = {Boston}}

@BOOK{Lear80,
author = {Lear, Edward},
title = {Lear’s Book of Nonsense},
year = {1880},
publisher = {Frederick Warne and Co},
location = {London}}
\end{filecontents}

\title{Literature Review: \\
\textbf{Nonsense Literature}}

\author{The Scroobious Bird}
\date{\today}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

\section*{\textit{Introduction}}
Some Text \supercite{Lear80}. Some more text \supercite{Lear71}.
