I am using ACM 2017 edition of .cls for my journal:

\documentclass[format=acmsmall, review=false, screen=true]{acmart}

using pdflatex on Overleaf and the below bibliography style:

% Bibliography
\bibliographystyle{ACM-Reference-Format-Journals}
\bibliography{acmsmall-sample-bibfile}

However, I am seeing an extra reference in my bibliography section having [1] and is empty. Can't seem to find a way to remove this extra empty reference. Any help is appreciated.

    Maybe there's a stray \cite{} in your .tex file? (Use Ctrl+F as a quick check)

  • @naphaneal, Checked the log file related to Bibtex, justs a bunch of warnings related to style and yet no error and other things helpful.

I had this problem and found that the problem was caused by an error in my .bib file. I had written:

@article{perdew_82},
title = {...}, 
journal = {...},
etc., down to a final closing }

It worked when I used the following (note the loss of a } character on the first line):

@article{perdew_82,
title = {...}, 
journal = {...},
etc., down to a final closing }
