I'm preparing slides for my dissertation proposal. I want to include my bibliography on the last slide, but the references don't quite fit on one slide. Here's a small example of what I'm trying to accomplish:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{bm}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{apacite}

\title[A BNP Beta-Mixture IRT Model]
{A Bayesian Nonparametric Beta-Mixture\\Item Response Model}
\author[E. A. Arenson]
{Ethan A. Arenson}
\date{August 30, 2017}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Sample Slide}
Random text \cite{Random Author}
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}
\frametitle{References}
\footnotesize
\bibliographystyle{apacite}
\bibliography{Dissertation}
\end{frame}
\end{document} 

The \footnotesize command in the "References" frame does not reduce the font size of the references. How can I either reduce the font size or split the reference list across two slides?

  • Split the reference with with \frame[allowframebreaks]{ – Bobyandbob May 25 '17 at 9:08
  • Thanks for the tip. Although I had to use the command \begin{frame}[allowframebreaks]. – Ethan Arenson May 25 '17 at 9:36
  • You are absolutly right, sorry for missspelling. – Bobyandbob May 25 '17 at 9:45

It is in the manual of apacite.

enter image description here

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{apacite}
\renewcommand\bibliographytypesize{\footnotesize}
\begin{document}

\nocite{knuth:ct:c}

\begin{frame}{References}
  \bibliographystyle{apacite}
  \bibliography{biblatex-examples}
\end{frame}

\end{document}

enter image description here

  • Thanks for your suggestion. I put the \renewcommand\bibliographytypesize{\small} command before the \begin{document} command. I get this error message in the log: ! Undefined control sequence. l.43 \renewcomammand \bibliographytypesize{\small} with a split between the \renewcommand and bibliographytypesize commands. – Ethan Arenson May 25 '17 at 9:42
  • @EthanArenson It's \renewcommand not \renewcomammand. Also this has to come after \usepackage{apacite}. – Henri Menke May 25 '17 at 10:08
