My bibliography (actually 4 different ones) is empty. If I try only one, with normal bibtex, it works.

I have read the multibib package manual pdf file. I have read the thread currvita, multibib & scrbook - multibib does not work and so many others. I had the same problem - no .bbl - file. Now i have bbl but it says I have no citations, which is not true.

Extracts of my cv.tex file:

\newcites{articles}{Artigos em Congressos}
\newcites{papers}{Papers em Journals}
\newcites{books}{Livros ou Capítulos de Livros}
\newcites{posters}{Posters}

\bibliographybooks{books}                   % Livros
\bibliographyposters{posters}             %posters

I can open all my bib files in Jabref and none gives errors. My log file:

The top-level auxiliary file: cv.aux 
The style file: IEEEtran.bst Illegal, another \bibstyle command---line 3 of file cv.aux : \bibstyle : {IEEEtran} 
I'm skipping whatever remains of this command Illegal, another \bibstyle command---line 4 of file cv.aux : \bibstyle : {IEEEtran} 
I'm skipping whatever remains of this command Illegal, another \bibstyle command---line 5 of file cv.aux : \bibstyle : {IEEEtran} 
I'm skipping whatever remains of this command 
I found no \citation commands---while reading file cv.aux 
I found no \bibdata command---while reading file cv.aux

I have IEEEtran.bst in the same folder as cv.tex

I am doing in terminal exactly what page 4 of the pdf manual of multibib says:

latex cv.tex
bibtex cv.tex
bibtex posters.aux
bibtex articles.aux
bibtex papers.aux
bibtex books.aux
latex cv.tex
latex cv.tex

What am I doing wrong?


OK, here it is a minimal example of the tex file:

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • Hi and welcome, you might be much better of using biblatex for that task. – Johannes_B May 8 '15 at 8:56
  • Did you cite anything? You can use \nocite{*} to include all available entries. – Johannes_B May 8 '15 at 8:57
  • you can see that i \nocitearticles(*) and so on, on the .tex extract file. I don't have biblatex installed. Never hear of it. bibtex always worked with me.....i just look at the info of biblatex and understand that is a more modern one and taht i need to change my bib files. that is out of question since they are huge! – Mariana Curado Malta May 8 '15 at 10:23
  • You haven't shown a minimal working example testable for us. You use different cites, but non for the main cv.tex. That does not include any cite commands, according to the BibTeX-log. I guess it is just a typo as the log file is correct, but you need to run bibtex on cv.aux. – Johannes_B May 8 '15 at 10:26
  • OK, I have changed the post with example testable. I do apreciate your help. – Mariana Curado Malta May 8 '15 at 10:40

Give the url as is, do not enclose it with \url with IEEEtran.bst.

Url = {http://iospress.metapress.com/content/t04963284412u236/?p=77f967e6089549a1b0f61a689452e804&pi=11}

Turns out that there was a local copy of multibib.sty dating back to 2003 that also prevented compiling.

  • Remember to delete your auxiliary files first. – Johannes_B May 8 '15 at 11:02
  • OK. I took \url out. And deleted all files but .tex and .bib. The "Publicações" sub section continues empty and the errors are exactly the same. – Mariana Curado Malta May 8 '15 at 18:29
  • Please add which errors you got to the question. Appart from that one entry with the url, preventing the document from compiling, everything works like a charm. – Johannes_B May 8 '15 at 18:39
  • I had to add author and title to your MWE, fixing the one entry it works. Please verify, that the minimal example works for you as well. It is possible, that the cause is somewhere else. dickimaw-books.com/latex/minexample/html <- following that algorithm, you will soon find the cause and specify the question. – Johannes_B May 8 '15 at 19:09
  • What does MWE means? – Mariana Curado Malta May 8 '15 at 19:31
