I want to enclose the title of articles in journal: Replacing

Amihud, Y., Mendelson, H.. Asset pricing and the bid-ask spread. Journal of Financial Economics 1986;17:223–249.


Amihud, Y., Mendelson, H.. "Asset pricing and the bid-ask spread." Journal of Financial Economics 1986;17:223–249.

Now, I'm using model4-names.bst, which can be obtained from the following site(hyperlink).

    real open and close quotes should be preferred here, instead of the "undifferentiated" double quotes, Jun 13 '15 at 12:45

Try adding the following function:

FUNCTION {quote}
{ duplicate$ empty$
    { pop$ "" }
    { "``" swap$ * "''" * }

Then, in the function FUNCTION {format.title}, change the following line from

{ "t" change.case$ }


{ "t" change.case$ quote}

Let me know if it works ;) .

    Welcome to TeX.SE. I've take the liberty of editing your answer to that double quotes rather than single quotes will be placed around the title string.
