I know that cite and biblatex are incompatible. Also, natbib and bibtex. I have looked at many Q & A regarding having bib per chapters, but those except this were dealing with multiple bibs. I have just one big bib and 5 chapters (separated .tex files).

I would like to generate chapters-wised references instead of one at the end. Here is my structure and I am using Pdflatex + bibtex + pdflatex*2 + viewpdf :

Currently, it generated one reference at the end, but If I want to have that chapter-wised and I put my bib lines at the end of each chapters' tex file, it gives me error. This task should be straightforward, but it is not.

\usepackage ...         







Now, as suggested by biblatex reference, biblatex is able to provide multiple references with this structure:


I have commented my include{cite} and added those instead of \bibliography and I am recieving this error:

Process started

This is BibTeX, Version 0.99d (TeX Live 2015) The top-level auxiliary file: 
book.aux A level-1 auxiliary file: foreword.aux A level-1 auxiliary file:
preface.aux A level-1 auxiliary file: acronym.aux A level-1 auxiliary file: 
part.aux A level-1 auxiliary file: 1-survey/definitions.aux A level-1 
auxiliary file: 4-/definitions.aux A level-1 auxiliary file: 
5-/definitions.aux I found no \citation commands---while reading file book.aux 
I found no \bibdata command---while reading file book.aux I found no \bibstyle 
command---while reading file book.aux (There were 3 error messages)

Is there a way I don't change my compilation flow with this? Apparently pdflatex and latex are having differences on usage.

    See § 3.7.4 Bibliography sections, pp. 82-83 in the biblatex documentation. – Bernard Jun 19 '17 at 9:10
  • Thanks @Bernard for the reference. I did as suggested, please see my updated question. – Amir Jun 19 '17 at 15:35
  • Do you have any reason to not use biblatex? – Bernard Jun 19 '17 at 15:56
  • please see my updated question. In the doc it says I have to use latex and then biber. Latex doesn't compiler and I don't have biber. Is there a chance I keep my old compilation flow (pdflatex,...) ? – Amir Jun 19 '17 at 15:59
  • Which distribution do you have? – Bernard Jun 19 '17 at 16:07
