I am trying to create a table with the information that is in my BibTeX file (like year of publication, description, etc) but I don't know how to do it. For example, let say this is my BibTeX file:

  author = {t1},
  title  = {t2},
  year   = {t3}

And I want my LaTeX output to show a table that contains author, title, and year

Does anyone knows how to do it?

  • Just to be clear, you don't want the full bibliography, just the author, title and year of each entry in the .bib file? – Alan Munn Apr 27 '17 at 0:55
  • No, I want more information. The author, title, and year was just an example. I might want to show the description or the keywords that are on the bibtext – Yoiku Apr 27 '17 at 0:58

    Forget BibTeX. Use Biblatex and Biber. If you are able to, that is. – cfr Apr 27 '17 at 1:10
  • It seems like you want to decide on a per-entry which information shoud be included and which shouuld be omitted. If there is some sort of scheme, i.e. all books shall not print a publisher (for whatever reason) and all online entries shall omit the url, this would be programmable (with quite some effort). – Johannes_B Apr 27 '17 at 5:34

    If there is no scheme, using an automation tool is very pointless. – Johannes_B Apr 27 '17 at 5:35

I found a way to do it. Thanks to @crf for mentioning Biblatex library

Here is a similar question with the answer and the example of code of how to do it
