when trying to compile my bibtex file, only certain references appear and get numbered. many others however do not, and when using the bibtex command, I get an "Error - log file not found!". I have used \cite{} on all references, where some appear as a question mark even though it exists in the bib file.

Please see my .bib file

can anyone see anything wrong? as I said, some references do work (altschul1997gapped) for instance.

  • 2
    Only the cited ones (using \cite{}) will appear. If you want to show non cited ones use \nocite{foo,blah}. Also, you can not compile the bib file. Just use your editor to execute bibtex on the aux file. – Sigur Dec 19 '14 at 20:05
  • The normal approach is to \cite{} the references you want and obtain a bibliography with those. If you want all of them (for debugging proposes) you can use \nocite{*}. – JJoao Dec 19 '14 at 23:14
  • sorry - I have not made myself clear. I have used \cite{} on every reference, and only some work. others appear with a question mark. i will edit my question to reflect this. – brucezepplin Dec 20 '14 at 18:14
  • Please add also a Minimal Working Example (MWE) which reproduces the problem. – Astrinus Dec 20 '14 at 18:25
  • probably irrelevant to the question, but instead of the double -- marking the span in pages, just a single - is expected. – barbara beeton Dec 20 '14 at 20:49

I cannot replicate the error you report getting. I did notice, though, quite a few issues in your bibliography file that ought to be fixed.

  • Most importantly, in the title fields, you need to take care not to let BibTeX lowercase words that should not be lowercased. Among them are words such as Wales (the country) and acrynonyms (DNA, HGVbase).

  • Some authors are "Corporate Authors", e.g.,

    author={1000 Genomes Project Consortium and others},
    

    If you take no care, the first author will be interpreted by BibTeX as having given names "1000", "Genomes", and "Project" and surname "Consortium" (and thus be sorted under C for Consortium!). Yikes!! You need to write this author field as

    author={{1000 Genomes Project Consortium} and others}
    

    ie., encase the entire first author's name in an extra pair of curly braces. Similarly, you need to write

    author={Green, Eric D and Guyer, Mark S and {National Human Genome Research Institute} and others},
    
  • Take care to use only the keyword and but no commas to separate authors. In the entry with key decode, you currently have

    author={Jeffrey R Gulcher, Kari Stefansson},
    

    By BibTeX's syntax rules, this entry will be interpreted as having a single author with a triple-word last name ("Jeffrey R Gulcher") and two first names -- "Kari" and "Stefansson"; it will thus also be sorted under "J" for "Jeffrey" rather than under "G" for "Gulcher". I believe this field should be

    author={Jeffrey R Gulcher and Kari Stefansson},
    
  • You're doing a very good job inputting accented characters, but there are some other non-7bit-ASCII characters present in the bib bile. E.g., you need to replace with --- to get an em-dash.

  • No point in having duplicate entries, right? Hence, do delete the second instance of the entry with key bromberg2007snap".

  • Optional (and not implemented in the code below): I would also add periods ("full stops") at the ends of abbreviated given names, i.e., write Collins, Francis S. and Brooks, Lisa D. instead of Collins, Francis S and Brooks, Lisa D. If the bibliography style you use happens to delete the periods, that's fine. However, no bib style file I know of will add the periods automatically if they're missing.

  • Somewhere between optional and required, but certainly quite desirable (and also not implemented in the code below): You should try to keep the information about the authors' names consistent across entries. E.g., you have the following two entries:

    @article{pickrell2014epilepsy,
      ...,
      author={Pickrell, Owen and Lacey, Arron and Bodger, Owen and Demmler, Joanne and Thomas, Rhys and Lyons, Ronan and Smith, Phil and Rees, Mark and Kerr, Mike},
      ...,
    }
    
    @article{pickrell2014trends,
      ...,
      author={Pickrell, W Owen and Lacey, Arron S and Thomas, Rhys H and Lyons, Ronan A and Smith, Phil EM and Rees, Mark I},
      ...,
    }
    

    The latter entry provides middle initials for all authors, whereas the former does not. Just to avoid any confusion about whether these authors are the same, you should provide the missing pieces of information in the former entry.

  • Good bibtex analysis: (+1)! One last question about inputting accented characters: Is there any standard/portable way of using utf8 chars in bibtex files? – JJoao Dec 29 '14 at 17:03
  • 1
    @JJoao - Thanks. About non-ASCII characters in a bib file: My advice is either to convert them so that the characters can be rendered correctly with "ordinary" BibTeX or to switch to biblatex/biber (and, of course, use the appropriate input and font encoding settings so that the non-ASCII characters will be typeset correctly). There is a program called "bibtexu" (for unicode-bibtex) which supposedly can handle unicode-encoded characters. However, I have absolutely no experience with bibtexu and hence don't know how reliable it may be. – Mico Dec 29 '14 at 17:10

(This is in fact a comment, but it is easier to format it this way)

there is a repetition

Repeated entry---line 208 of file x.bib :@article{bromberg2007snap

I tried your missing ref. example with this MWE

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}    
\cite{altschul1997gapped}
\bibliographystyle{plain}
\bibliography{x}              %% to get x.bib
\end{document}

and it works fine. Please check if this works for you.

  • Removing the repeated entry will not clear up the error(s) the OP says he/she is getting. – Mico Dec 28 '14 at 18:45
  • You are right. I just report it because it produces a bibtex error that can easily be fixed. – JJoao Dec 28 '14 at 18:54
