I want to change the font style of the journal in the bibliography from italic to medium using natbib?

\renewcommand{\bibfont}{\footnotesize} allows to change the size but I haven't find an option for changing the style.

Any help is much appreciated

  • The font of the journal is controlled by your bibliography style. So we need to know which style you use. Please show us an MWE/MWEB.

  • Here's a MWE of what I have: \usepackage[round]{natbib} \renewcommand{\bibfont}{\normalfont} \bibliographystyle{apalike} \bibliography{referencias}

Not entirely sure what you have in mind, so a MWE would have helped, but this changes the style to italic. biblatex is worth looking into; it has more features than natbib.

  • Thanks but what I need is to turn the whole reference to normal font i.sstatic.net/9Vm16.png This is the way it's formated and it's exactly right for what I need but the journal is in italic and I need it to be in normalfont. I would use biblatex but it generates square braquets.
