How can I suppress the bibliography headings References in cases like this? Or alternatively, what is a better way of doing what I'm trying to achieve here, which is to insert one or more bibliography items in a text?

To answer your first question, you can use


The better way should be to use


The cited reference will then also appear in the bibliography.

  • Why is \fullcite better? It seems to me it would require a lot of manual tweaking in order to make it look like a reference, since it doesn't include normal bibliography settings such as hanging indents.

  • If you want the reference to look exactly like in a bibliography then \printbibliography[heading=none] inside a refsection environment is the easiest solution. In that case, you maybe want to use \nocite also outside of the refsection to make sure the reference appears in the main bibliography as well. As refsections cannot be nested, there are situations where you have to use \fullcite instead.
