The answer to Jannik's question (Biblatex: Two bibliographies with different styles and sortings) is almost what I like to have. But instead of style=alphabetic I would like to use style=phys and have bolded roman numerals as labels in the first bibliography and corresponding in-text citations. (i.e. replace [Bbb02] with {\bf I} and [Aaa03] with {\bf II} and get them in the order of existence in the bibliography.)

  • Welcome to TeX - LaTeX! Can you post a MWE as in the linked question, but with the changes you have tried so far. Jan 24, 2017 at 12:59
  • In the given answer MWE I have set style=phys and tried to define new bibenvironment as follows % \defbibenvironment{mypubs} % environment for own publications with Roman numerals {\enumerate[label={\Roman*}] {} {\setlength{\labelwidth}{\labelnumberwidth}% \setlength{\leftmargin}{\labelwidth}% \setlength{\labelsep}{\biblabelsep}% \addtolength{\leftmargin}{\labelsep}% \setlength{\itemsep}{\bibitemsep}% \setlength{\parsep}{\bibparsep}}% \renewcommand*{\makelabel}[1]{\mkbibbold{\hss##1}}} {\endenumerate} {\item}

  • Sorry, I don't get the environment definition copied right, but just % environment... is real comment other %'s just end lines.

This is actually quite a bit easier than Biblatex: Two bibliographies with different styles and sortings That is because we only want to mix numeric styles and we don't need to change the sorting.



  author    = {Author Aaa},
  title     = {Some Title},
  publisher = {Some Publisher},
  year      = 2003,
  author    = {Author Bbb},
  title     = {Some Title},
  publisher = {Some Publisher},
  year      = 2002,

  author  = {Author Ccc},  
  title   = {Some Title},
  year    = 2004,
  url     = {www.test1.com/bild.jpg},
  author  = {Author Ddd},
  title   = {Some Title},
  year    = 2001,
  url     = {www.test2.com/bild.jpg},

\usepackage[style = phys, defernumbers = true,  backend = biber]{biblatex}


%Append keywords to identify different bibliography entries.
  \maps[datatype=bibtex, overwrite]{
      \step[fieldset=KEYWORDS, fieldvalue=primary, append]
      \step[fieldset=KEYWORDS, fieldvalue=secondary, append]



The first two citations \cite{LinkD01} and \cite{BookB02}. 
The others are \cite{LinkC04} and \cite{BookA03}.

\printbibliography[title=Bibliography, keyword=primary]
\printbibliography[title=References, keyword=secondary, resetnumbers]

There are more elegant ways to split bibliographies if you do not already have them in different .bib files. But that depends on your setup.
