In my thesis (based on the classicthesis package) I'd like to create a page with a list of my own publications. I want to be able to group them under different headings ("Conference Publications", "Journal Publications" etc.), and give them a specific order.

I've tried the multibib package, but I don't just want a second bibliography. I need the possibility to group and order entries by hand.

I'm using BibTeX and natbib for bibliography management. For consistency, I'd like to rely on BibTeX entries for creating the list of publications, but there might be a simpler solution without BibTeX.

    You could do this relatively easily, I think, with Biblatex, if that's an option. – cfr Dec 31 '15 at 0:51
  • @cfr I don't know, how would that look like? – clstaudt Dec 31 '15 at 10:41
  • It means using Biblatex and, probably, Biber, rather than natbib, multibib and BibTeX etc. Biblatex offers a lot more flexibility. In particular, you can filter entries when printing bibliographies according to entry type, keyword, category etc. etc. It handles multiple bibliographies much more smoothly than traditional BibTeX. – cfr Dec 31 '15 at 17:24

    Note that the newest classic thesis template (v4.2) has switched to using biblatex to manage bibliographies, and has a simple example of what you're looking for. Download the template and test if it works for you bitbucket.org/amiede/classicthesis/downloads – PhilipPirrip Jan 2 '16 at 14:49

    @clstaudt You have to make sure the right processor is run too - it's either biber or bibtex8. Check the classicthesis-config.tex file and change the biblatex processor. It's bibtex8 be default; biber is much better but doesn't work for everyone. Then pdflatex ClassicThesis; bibtex8 ClassicThesis1-blx; bibtex8 ClassicThesis; pdflatex ClassicThesis. (with biber, it's pdflatex ClassicThesis, biber ClassicThesis; pdflatex Classicthesis). – PhilipPirrip Jan 4 '16 at 21:07

This solved my problem and saved me time otherwise spent on studying bibtex, biber, biblatex, bibtex8 and natbib.
