In my bibliography, I write a reference without any periods at the end, but when I write a note, a period appears between the body of reference and the note. How can I edit a copy of unsrtdin.bst so that the perido does not appear?

This is my code:

author          = {aaa, bbb},
title           = {css},
journal         = {Journal of Science},
year            = {2015}, 
note            = {accept}}

and the output in pdf file is:

aaa,bbb: css. Journal of Science (2015). - accept

The period I mean is the one after the year.

  • Try to look for FUNCTION {article} in unsrtdin.bst and comment/edit or remove note set.period.dash.check. Maybe it solves your problem... May 6, 2015 at 13:40
  • Just to be sure I understand what you want: You want to remove the period but keep the en-dash, right?

Searching for . - gives us line 212 of unsrtdin. saliUnsrtdinModified

        author          = { aaa,bbb},
        title           = {css},
        journal         = {Journal of Science},
