I would like to use double citations with the BibTeX style angewandte (chemie). In the readme file this is explained:

For double citations in the style of Angewandte Chemie (German of international edition) the second literature citation can be given with the BibTeX fields twojournal, twovolume and twopages. For the year the field year is used!

However, I don't understand these instructions. Can somebody help me in this case?

Edit: I simply downloaded the bst-file from https://chemieunser.wordpress.com/2012/05/02/bibtex-stil-fur-die-angewandte-chemie/ , put it in the folder of my tex-file and use include with the following commands (only the most important listed):

\usepackage{mciteplus}
\usepackage[hidelinks,bookmarksopen]{hyperref}
\bibliographystyle{angewandte}
\bibliography{master_references}
  • For those of us not already familiar with this particular bibliography style: What's the exact name of the style file, and is this file available on the CTAN? – Mico Jan 15 '15 at 21:41

    For non-chemists: Angewandte Chemie is published in English and German. Historically, the two editions had different articles, then the same articles but different pages. They like us to cite both editions. – Joseph Wright Jan 15 '15 at 21:42

The style linked to comes with a demo file which shows the bibliography entry should be given in the form

@ARTICLE{Ache1989,
  author = {H. J. Ache},
  journal = {Angew. Chem.},
  year = {1989},
  volume = {101},
  pages = {1-21},
  timestamp = {2012.04.27},
  twojournal = {Angew. Chem. Int. Ed.},
  twopages = {1-20},
  twovolume = {28}
}

where the two... entries are used for the second version. This leads to a minimal example something like

\RequirePackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib}
@ARTICLE{Ache1989,
  author = {H. J. Ache},
  journal = {Angew. Chem.},
  year = {1989},
  volume = {101},
  pages = {1-21},
  twojournal = {Angew. Chem. Int. Ed.},
  twopages = {1-20},
  twovolume = {28}
}
\end{filecontents*}
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[sort&compress,numbers]{natbib}
\usepackage{mciteplus}
\begin{document}
\cite{Ache1989}
\bibliographystyle{angewandte}
\bibliography{\jobname}
\end{document}

There are two Angew. Chem. styles on CTAN, my own angew style, part of the rsc package and the ChemEurJ style, part of the [chembst] bundle. My style does not attempt anything 'clever' for Angewandte citations while ChemEurJ offerss the germanpages concept:

\RequirePackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib}
@ARTICLE{Ache1989,
  author = {H. J. Ache},
  journal = {Angew. Chem. Int. Ed.},
  year = {1989},
  volume = {28},
  pages = {1-20},
  germanpages = {1-21},
}
\end{filecontents*}
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[sort&compress,numbers]{natbib}
\usepackage{mciteplus}
\begin{document}
\cite{Ache1989}
\bibliographystyle{ChemEurJ}
\bibliography{\jobname}
\end{document}

Both of these rely on a fixed relationship between the two editions: they won't work if the paper happens to be in one year in English and a different year in German.

If you are willing to consider biblatex then he chem-angew style (again written by me) offers a way to link two independent database entries:

\RequirePackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib}
@ARTICLE{Ache1989,
  author = {H. J. Ache},
  journal = {Angew. Chem},
  year = {1989},
  volume = {101},
  pages = {1-21},
  related     = {Ache1989a},
  relatedtype = {translatedas},
}

@ARTICLE{Ache1989a,
  author = {H. J. Ache},
  journal = {Angew. Chem. Int. Ed.},
  year = {1989},
  volume = {28},
  pages = {1-20},
}
\end{filecontents*}
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[backend=biber,style=chem-angew]{biblatex}
\addbibresource{\jobname.bib}
\begin{document}
\cite{Ache1989}
\printbibliography
\end{document}

This has the advantage that each entry is therefore usable on it's own in other styles. (I provide a bundle of biblatex styles but have only added this linking to the chem-angew style as other publishers do not do this routinely.)
