Is there a way to create a working paper in Bibdesk?

Bibdesk does not the option of working paper and it cannot be modified to from @article to @workingpaper in the latex itself and then opened up in bibdesk again.

Anyone come across this before?

  • Hi, i am not quite sure what you are asking for. Are you asking for a new type workingpaper that you can use just like article, book or online to cite in your LaTeX document? – Johannes_B Dec 13 '14 at 11:17
  • Hi, yes I think so. There are options for @Book{abramowitz+stegun, ... @article{abramowitz+stegun} @inbook and so on, but there is not one for working papers themselves that can be cited in the LaTex document. Cheers – Nick Vanderkooi Dec 13 '14 at 11:27

It is possible to create new entry types in bib desk, just go to Preferences and then Fields and click on Custom BibTeX and Fields (edit) and then click the + under Type.
