I'm writing an article using revtex4-1 format, and in order to generate the bibliography I use the BibTeX style apsrev4-1.

Recently, the journal change the bibliography format and are now admitting the article titles in the bibliography.

Is it possible to hack the style to show the titles? Thank you.

\documentclass[twocolumn,aps,showpacs,showkeys,prd,superscriptaddress,byrevtex]{revtex4-1}

\usepackage{amsmath,latexsym}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage[%
  colorlinks=true,
  urlcolor=blue,
  linkcolor=blue,
  citecolor=blue
]{hyperref}
\usepackage{etoolbox}
\usepackage{breqn}

\makeatletter
\let\cat@comma@active\@empty
\makeatother

\begin{document}

\bibliographystyle{apsrev4-1}

\end{document}

    Does the journal provide, or suggest, a bibliography style? – Mico Jul 29 '15 at 19:11

By suggestion of @Mico, I looked at the webpage of APS and found the following

How can I make the titles of cited journal articles appear in the bibliography?

REVTeX 4.1 calls in a default BibTeX Style (.bst) file for each supported journal. The .bst files support displaying the titles of cited journal articles in the bibliography. To display the titles, simply use the "longbibliography" class option. Consult the REVTeX 4.1 documentation for more information.

Thus the solution to my problem would be the following:

  • Add the journal global option: in my case aps,prd
  • Add the longbibliography global option
  • Remove the \bibliographystyle{apsrev4-1} line.

Thus, the minimal code would be (after removing some unnecessary options)

\documentclass[twocolumn,aps,prd,longbibliography]{revtex4-1}
\usepackage{amsmath,latexsym}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage[%
  colorlinks=true,
  urlcolor=blue,
  linkcolor=blue,
  citecolor=blue
]{hyperref}
\usepackage{etoolbox}
\usepackage{breqn}

\makeatletter
\let\cat@comma@active\@empty
\makeatother
