I am making my slides with beamer and for the references, I'm referencing it to a .bib file. In that file I have the following entry:

  title={Disease-Gene Association Using a Genetic Algorithm},
  author={Tahmasebipour, Koosha},
  school={Brock University}

My problem is that, in generated slides, it can't recognize \cite{kooshathesis} while there is no problem with other entries of my .bib file.

Is that a problem with @masterthesis ?

Edit: As it was suggested here, I'm including a MVE here:

\setbeamertemplate{bibliography item}{[\theenumiv]}


I want to cite this work \cite{kooshathesis}, but it doesn't work!

   \tiny{\bibliographystyle{abbrv} }

  • Are you using biblatex as citation package? – Johannes_B Sep 3 '15 at 17:09
  • No I'm not, this is the references slide: \begin{frame}[allowframebreaks] \frametitle{References} \tiny{\bibliographystyle{abbrv} } \bibliography{references} \end{frame} should I use that package? @Johannes_B – ashkanent Sep 3 '15 at 17:41
  • The style actually knows that type, so i guess a minimal working example is needed. Somebody will figure out what to do once your basic code is known. – Johannes_B Sep 3 '15 at 17:44
  • Thanks for your suggestion, I just edited the post. Do you see any problem there? @Johannes_B – ashkanent Sep 4 '15 at 15:18

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the cause was a faulty database with some double entry. – Johannes_B Sep 13 '15 at 18:50
