I am trying to get my bibliography in this sytle:

[#] Last or first name, First or last name, Title , Publisher, Year.

I write the name as:

Carl Kingsford

But it appears as :

C. Kingsford

URL does not appear when it has. I want all the information i enter inside jabref to appear in a format (I don't care which), but should appear consistently in all.

Bibtex code:

@Book{Observers,

  title     = {Introduction to dynamic systems; theory, models, and applications},

  publisher = {John Wiley and Sons},

  year      = {1979},

  author    = {Luenberger, David G David G},

}

Entry:

[8] D. G. D. G. Luenberger. Introduction to dynamic systems; theory, models, and applications. John Wiley and Sons, 1979.

i am using abbrv style, if you guys can suggest me a style.

Example2:

@Book{Discretetime,

  title     = {Discrete-time signal processing},

  publisher = {Pearson Higher Education},

  year      = {2010},

  author    = {Oppenheim, Alan V and Schafer, Ronald W},

  edition   = {2nd},

}

    You would need a bibliography style that keeps these things. – Pieter van Oostrum Nov 19 '16 at 8:31
  • You've set the 'biblatex' tag: Please tell us with which options you're loading the biblatex package. Please also show us the bibliographic entry: Is the author listed as Carl Kingsford or as C. Kingsford? – Mico Nov 19 '16 at 8:36
  • Incidentally, an aspect of the formatting instructions is rather ambigous: How should one interpret Last or first name, First or last name? I can think of (at least) two ways to interpret it. Moreover, it doesn't actually state one way or another if the full or the abbreviated form of the given name should be used. – Mico Nov 19 '16 at 8:52

    My guess is that you are using only bibtex, not biblatex (that can be used in LyX, but setting is not trivial). The style of the bibliography determine if the name is abbreviated or not, what part of the appear first, as well as if some fields as the URL are showed or not. You options are a) search the appropriate BibTeX style b) make your own custom BibTeX style c) switch to biblatex and c.1) find a appropriate style and/or c.2) tune it via biblatex options. – Fran Nov 19 '16 at 9:17

    @Aashu10 1) your requirements are not completely clear for me and there are many thing to fix in a bib style . It could help a more complete example of the bibtex code, including also an article reference, URL fields, etc. and the desired output. 2) Use custom-bib package for your own bibtex styles, but at the end could be better switch to biblatex if you are not comfortable with any standard bibtex style. – Fran Nov 19 '16 at 9:38

If you don't want BibTeX to abbreviate the given names of authors, don't use the abbrv bibliography style. Instead, use the plain style. I.e., change the argument of \bibliographystyle from abbrv to plain.

From a separate comment, I gather that you want the information given in the entries' url fields to be typeset. I therefore suggest that you (a) use the plainnat bibliography style and (b) load the package natbib with the option numbers.

Incidentally, the author field of one of your entries is likely incorrect. Instead of

author    = {Luenberger, David G David G},

it should almost certainly [!] be

author    = {Luenberger, David G.},

A full MWE and its output. Note that the test entries you provided don't have url fields.

\RequirePackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{mybib.bib}
@Book{Observers,
  title     = {Introduction to Dynamic Systems: Theory, Models, and Applications},
  publisher = {John Wiley and Sons},
  year      = {1979},
  author    = {Luenberger, David G.},
}
@Book{Discretetime,
  title     = {Discrete-time Signal Processing},
  publisher = {Pearson Higher Education},
  year      = {2010},
  author    = {Oppenheim, Alan V. and Schafer, Ronald W.},
  edition   = {2nd},
}
\end{filecontents}

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[numbers]{natbib}
\bibliographystyle{plainnat}
\begin{document}
\cite{Observers}, \cite{Discretetime}
\bibliography{mybib}
\end{document}
