I'm trying to have a citation (\cite{something}) appear in the footnote as well.

I've tried doing this by adding \foonote{}\cite{} to stuff, but it became weird.

\usepackage[style=footnote-dw]{biblatex} is also weird, as it just displays the label of the citation in the footnote.

Is this what is meant?? The bibentry package allows the actual citation text to be grabbed with \bibentry{<label>}, so that it can be inserted into a footnote, for example.

    author = "Frank Mittelbach and Michel Goossens  and Johannes Braams and David Carlisle  and Chris Rowley",
    title = "The {LaTeX} Companion",
    year = "1993",
    publisher = "Addison-Wesley",
    address = "Reading, Massachusetts"
        AUTHOR  = "Segletes, S. B. AND Walters, W. P.",
        TITLE = {Extensions to the Exact Solution of the Long-Rod
                 Penetration/Erosion Equations},
        JOURNAL = "IJIE",
        YEAR    = "2003",
        VOLUME  = "28",
        PAGES   = "363--376"}
Citing these references in the main text.\cite{goossens93, segl03}%
\footnote{\cite{goossens93} \bibentry{goossens93}}.
I can then access both the number of the cite as well as the full citation, 
shown here in the footnote.

Now here is the bibliography.

  • do you know how to make that work with biblatex? the \bibentry doesn't seem to work. May 9, 2016 at 13:47
  • @David天宇Wong I am not a biblatex user, but if you edit your question to post a full working example that demonstrates the problem, perhaps I or someone else could take a stab. May 9, 2016 at 13:49
  • looks like \fullcite is the biblatex equivalent. May 9, 2016 at 13:57
  • @David天宇Wong Great! Perhaps you can post your own answer showing how to access that. May 9, 2016 at 13:59
