The code above works, but the citation shows up as:

(Mearsheimer, n.d.)

From bib file:

@book{Waltz,
    Author = {Kenneth N. Waltz},
    Date-Added = {2017-07-03 15:08:26 +0000},
    Date-Modified = {2017-07-03 15:09:40 +0000},
    Keywords = {Structural Realism},
    Publisher = {Waveland Press, Inc.},
    Title = {Theory of International Politics},
    Year = {2010}}

With this command, the n.d. is suppressed, but the year does not appear.

\usepackage[notes, authordate, nodates=false, backend=biber, autocite = inline]{biblatex-chicago}

I would expect the year of publication to be shown in place of n.d. In my .bib file it is there and it prints correctly on the References page at the end of the document.

Any advice? Have not found anything online.

  • And maybe show the entry of Mearsheimer in the bib file. – Dr. Manuel Kuehner Jul 7 '17 at 21:13

    @HenriMenke, the suggestion worked out of a guess, but the explanation makes no sense, given that I could not reproduce the problem. If you really think it's the wisest, at your request, I will undelete the answer but edit and leave a one-liner with the solution. – gusbrs Jul 8 '17 at 2:11

Given discussion in the comments, substituting Year = {2010} by date = {2010} should be enough.

    A few versions ago date handling was changed in biblatex. One consequence was that \DeclareLabeldate needed to be changed, it now needs an explicit \field{year}, where before \field{date} was enough to cover the use of both year = {2010} and date = {2010}. Since biblatex-chicago modifies \DeclareLabeldate it could be that the OP is running an outdated version of biblatex-chicago where \field{year} is not yet included. – moewe Jul 8 '17 at 7:39
  • Now we really know what probably was going on. Tanks @moewe! – gusbrs Jul 8 '17 at 10:39
