# How do I get rid of “Note1”, “Note2”, … for footnotes placed in the bibliography?

I am writing an article based on the APS (American Physical Society), Physical Review B article format. This places all footnotes in the numbered bibliography at the end of the article. All citations and footnotes get superscript markers. I'm using:

\documentclass[aps,prb,superscriptaddress,twocolumn,showpacs,
longbibliography]{revtex4-1}
. . .
\bibliographystyle{apsrev}
. . .
\bibliography{BibTeX_Bibliography}


among other packages.

I am using TeXstudio and I made the bibliography with JabRef. Each footnote is properly placed in the bibliography section at the end of the article, but each one gets a "Note1", "Note2", etc. in front of the footnote text. I can't figure out how to get rid of this. When the .bbl file is created, I get things like:

\bibitem[{Note1()}]{Note1}
Note1, \bibinfo{note}{\protect {Bonsall  . . . spherical geometry. See Ref.\protect
\tmspace +\thickmuskip {.2777em}\protect \onlinecite {name1}, Appx. D.}}

\bibitem[{Note2()}]{Note2}
Note2, \bibinfo{note}{\protect {Eq.~\protect \ref {eq:Ecor, a_c} is . . . indices,
\protect \cite {Bonsall1977} and  . . . exact''}}.


I deleted some of the text for brevity. \tmspace +\thickmuskip {.2777em} was added by the computer, not by me. The result is: Reference #7 is a regular bibliography entry, which is correct. In the footnotes I had to use \protect around all of the text, i.e. \footnote{\protect{...}} because otherwise the first character in the text is automatically set to lower case. I also put \protect in front of the equation and reference citations or I get error messages. These work fine, but I can't get rid of the "Note1, "... I could go into the .bbl file and manually delete these, but then when I recompile the file, the .bbl gets overwritten and I get the same thing again. I also noticed that for entry #9, if I end with "exact.", then the system thinks I don't end with a period so it will insert one automatically and I end up with "exact.".

I tried using the notes2bib and endnotes packages, but these don't help.

• Welcome to TeX.SX! You don't get rid of footnotes in the bibliography, because that's the style of Physical Reviews. – egreg Jun 7 '16 at 22:02
• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – Dai Bowen Nov 19 '16 at 19:48

Try getting rid of \bibliographystyle{apsrev} (I think the prb specification in your document class should automatically call the correct bibliography style file).

• Removing \bibliographystyle{apsrev} doesn't work. – Inquisitor Dec 4 '16 at 13:57
