As I am writing the manuscript of my PhD thesis, I am facing a `LaTeX' obstacle. Chapter 2,3 and 4 of my thesis will, each, be a copy of a published article. For so, I would like each of this chapter to end with the bibliography of the article.

I also want a bibliography at the end of thesis for the references I used in the introduction ( chapter 1), and in the chapters 5 to 7, plus the appendices.

I could use a \includepdf for the articles but that will remove the hyperref link inside the chapters and for so I would like to avoid that.

How can I have multiple bibliographies in a single tex document.

ps: I don't mind merging all my .bib files into one, there should be no conflict.


You can use multibib package to define multiple bibliographies inside the same document.

Here is a MWE:

\newcites{ltex}{\TeX\ and \LaTeX\ References}
References to the \TeX book \citeltex{Knuth:1991}
and to Lamport’s \LaTeX\ book, which appears
only in the references\nociteltex{Lamport:1994}.
Finally a cite to a Postscript tutorial
\renewcommand{\refname}{Postscript References}

The output will look like this:
