This is what a normal reference using IEEETran.bst looks like:

[1] J. Bardeen, L. N. Cooper et al., “Theory of superconductivity,” Physical Review, vol. 108, no. 5, pp. 1175–1204, Dec. 1957.

This is what I would like to get (notice the title in bold):

[1] J. Bardeen, L. N. Cooper et al., “Theory of superconductivity,” Physical Review, vol. 108, no. 5, pp. 1175–1204, Dec. 1957.

This post outlines how to do this very efficiently using build-in commands from the IEEETran.bst style. I however can't find how to do something similar for the title. Any suggestions?

Turns out, there is no way to do this using the BSTcontrol functions. As a workaround, I modified the IEEETran.bst template as follows:

  1. Add the following function: FUNCTION {bold} { duplicate$ empty$ { pop$ "" } { "\textbf{" swap$ * "}" * } if$ }
  2. Find the following function: FUNCTION {format.article.title}

  3. Add the word bold right under select.language. The result should look something like this: FUNCTION {format.article.title} { title duplicate$ empty$ 'skip$ { this.to.prev.status this.status.std "t" change.case$ } if$ "title" bibinfo.check duplicate$ empty$ 'skip$ { quote.close 'this.status.quote := is.last.char.not.punct { punct.std 'this.status.punct := } { punct.no 'this.status.punct := } if$ select.language bold "``" swap$ * cap.status.std } if$ } There may be other places where a similar modification is required, but at least this takes care of all article citations.
