Consider following MWE:


\usepackage{biblatex} % version 3.3 with biber 2.4 (TexLive 2015)
  author  = {AUTHOR A, AUTHOR B},
  journal = {NAME OF JOURNAL},
  title   =  {NAME OF PAPER},
  year    = {2016},
  volume  = {12},


  \item \citefield{example}{author}
  \item \citefield{example}{journal}
  \item \citefield{example}{title}
  \item \citefield{example}{year}
  \item \citefield{example}{volume}


enter image description here

As you can see author and journal are not given. What is the problem or is there a bug in this biblatex version?


The answer is given here https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/207676/8917

Replacing citefield with citename for entry author. For the entry journal one has to use journaltitle even though the entry is called journal in the bibfile.

   \item \citename{example}{author}
   \item \citefield{example}{journaltitle}
