# Looking for the bibliography style used by the journal Econometric Theory

I am looking for a bibliography style (.bst file) that looks like the one at the bottom of the second column on this webpage http://korora.econ.yale.edu/et/policy/guidelines.pdf?jid=ECT. Copied here,

Bergstrom, A.R. (1976) Statistical Inference in Continuous Time Economic Models. North-Holland.

Giraitis, L. & D. Surgailis (1986) Multivariate Appell polynomials and the central limit theorem. In E. Eberlein & M.S. Taqqu (eds.), Dependence in Probability and Statistics: A Survey of Recent Results, pp. 21–72.

Birkhauser. Gregory, A.W. & G.W. Smith (1995) Business cycle theory and econometrics. Economic Journal 105, 1597–1608.

I have searched on the webpages linked by this question (Where can I find collections of bibliography styles?) and cannot find it.

Here is an example,

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{natbib}
\begin{document}
\citet{abc}
\bibliographystyle{agsm} %I would like a .bst file to insert here instead of agsm.
\bibliography{biblio}
\end{document}


Edit: I landed up using latx makebst as suggested in the comments.

• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a complete minimal working example with your .bib file included. Is the use of BibTeX mandatory for you or you can use also BibLaTeX? – CarLaTeX Nov 1 '16 at 8:40
• Sorry for my English, for .bib file included I intended to add also the code that contains some of your bib item, for example: @book{bergstrom1976statistical, title={Statistical inference in continuous time economic models}, author={Bergstrom, Albert Rex}, volume={99}, year={1976}, publisher={North-Holland Amsterdam} } – CarLaTeX Nov 1 '16 at 9:14
• @CarLaTeX I have added an example. I looked up BibLaTeX tex.stackexchange.com/questions/5091/… and I think I could probably learn to use it. – user117670 Nov 1 '16 at 9:17
• What specifically would you like to change? The style guidelines you put up there are very similar to, e.g. chicago style. An alternative option would be run latex makebst and pick your options there. A third option is just to submit your paper "as is" and let the copy editors sort out the minutiae of the bibliography... – Seamus Nov 1 '16 at 9:32
• @Seamus there are still some differences with chicago. I would like to just leave it to the copy editors except the editor is asking for this in the revision (quite annoying). I will try to run latex makebst or learn BibLaTeX (or use the similar chicago style). – user117670 Nov 1 '16 at 9:45

Even if you have already found a solution, I'd like to show a possible one with BibLaTeX.

I invented the .bib file and the solution is unsophisticated (for example the unpublished entry should be improved to avoid the warning), but I think it could give you an idea.
