I am compiling a document on sharelatex.com. I would like to have a citation like "Smith (in press)". However, since I cannot edit the bibliography style's bst file online, I'm not sure how to fix this. I tried the solution with \noop mentioned here, but it didn't work. How to enter publications "in press", or "submitted to" in BibTeX?

I am using the default ShareLaTeX settings, where it's compiled with pdflatex.

The bibtex file includes

@preamble{ " \newcommand{\noop}[1]{} " }

  title={Definitely, maybe: Approaching speaker commitment experimentally},
  author={Degen, Judith and Scontras, Gregory and Trotzke, Andreas and Wittenberg, Eva},
  note={in revision},
  year={\noop{2016}in revision}

In the main file, I have the following packages loaded, and call the bibliography as follows:

\usepackage{xparse} % for the main command

    Can you give a bit more information about your set-up please? Your question does not mention which bibliography package you use explicitly. Since you mention .bst files and \noop and link to a BibTeX question, that makes me think you use BibTeX. But you have tagged your question biblatex. biblatex and BibTeX are fundamentally incompatible. Please show us a full MWEB/MWE, so we can really see what is going on at your end. – moewe Jun 7 '17 at 6:58

    I second moewe's demand for more details. But, in case you are considering biblatex as an alternative, you could look at tex.stackexchange.com/a/367423/105447 for a start. – gusbrs Jun 7 '17 at 11:55
  • Thank you guys for your comments. I added some details. How can I tell if sharelatex is using bibtex or biblatex? – Adam_G Jun 7 '17 at 22:35

I solved the problem by using biblatex as the bibliography package instead of natbib. In addition, the package gb4e has been known to create some issues. Finally, with biblatex I used the \textcite and \parencite commands in place of \cite.

  • Couldn't come earlier back here. Anyway, good to know you found your way through with biblatex. – gusbrs Jun 8 '17 at 9:53
