I am attempting to cite previous chapters in my dissertation using bibtex, but most of these are currently unpublished so I am citing them as in prepartion. I have attempted to use the \noop{} functionality but have encountered an issue. When I attempt to cite the previous 3 chapters in the fourth chapter the last in preparation chapter is cited as "I" . For example, when I compile the command \citep{Vincent17, Chapter2, Chapter3} , I get the following

(Vincent et al. 2017; In Preparation 2017a;I).

If I cite only Chapter3 I get the result I expect of (Vincent et al. In Preparation 2017b). I started out the In Preparation without the "a" and "b", but Bibtex was not adding them. Below are the relevant citations. I am using the natbib and hyperref and cleveref packages.

  author =   {Matthew T Vincent and Travis O Brenden and James R Bence},
  title =    {Simulation testing the robustness of a multi-region tag-integrated assessment model that exhibits natal homing and estimates natural mortality and reporting rate},
  journal =      {Can. J. Fish. Aquat. Sci.},
  year =     {2017}

  author =   {Matthew T Vincent and Travis O Brenden and James R Bence},
  title =    {Parameter estimation performance in a recovery-conditioned integrated tagging catch-at-age analysis model},
  journal =      {Manuscript in Preparation},
  year =     {\noop{3333}In~Preparation 2017a}}

  author =   {Matthew T Vincent and Travis O Brenden and James R Bence},
  title =    {Testing common assumptions used in simulations of multi-region Integrated Tagging and Catch-at-Age Analysis model performance},
  journal =      {Manuscript in Preparation},
  year =     {\noop{4444}In~Preparation 2017b}}
  • The body of your question talks about bibtex, but your question is tagged biblatex. Please clarify which one you are using. – user36296 Jul 20 '17 at 20:09

    Welcome to TeX.SE. I don't think it's proper to use the @article entry type for the entries Chapter2 and Chapter3. You should be using either the @misc or the @unpublished entry type for these two entries. – Mico Jul 20 '17 at 20:11
  • Which bibliography style do you employ? – Mico Jul 20 '17 at 20:15
  • I am using the cjfas.bst, which I obtained from here: github.com/seananderson/bst/blob/master/cjfas.bst – user3653085 Jul 20 '17 at 20:17
