I am writing a document that in a way consists of many different papers. People reading the document may be interested only in a small aspect of it. I want to make it easier to read for different people by breaking up the bibliography after each section.

"How can I create bibliographies after each section?" and its Helper questions

  1. How can I show bibliographies after each section or a specific point related to the earlier section?

  2. How does your method work if some references are common between the sections?

    Have you looked into the chapterbib package? – Mico Feb 1 '15 at 1:47

    The biblatex package also allows for this with a great deal of flexibility. – jon Feb 1 '15 at 2:08

    I'm currently doing precisely this with biblatex and biber. It is much more automatic than chapterbib and bibtex. (You don't have to run the backend once per bibliography - you just run it on the main file as usual.) – cfr Feb 1 '15 at 2:14

    Same opinion as @cfr: biblatex defines the refsection and refsegment environment. You also can print bibliography organised by categories. – Bernard Feb 1 '15 at 2:26

    The answer to your second question (which you call your first) is that it depends... It depends how you configure it, which options you choose... The way I do it, a reference which occurs in multiple reference sections will be listed in the list of references in each of those sections. But you can use categories, as Bernard says, or other means of filtering, if that's what you want. – cfr Feb 1 '15 at 2:30

I don't want that the comments disappear so summarising the Biber solution so far here, hopefully someone can clarify this with SWE so easy to use this method.

so there looks to be some easy solution with Biber.
