I use \usepackage{natbib} and \bibliographystyle{apalike} for producing the bibliography in my book. Here is a sample for the items @collection built in my lib.bib file:

@incollection{MABh,
    Booktitle = {The Tibetan Tripitaka - Peking edition},
    Date-Added = {2016-10-01 20:30:51 +0000},
    Date-Modified = {2017-11-15 13:34:00 +0000},
    Editor = {Suzuki, Daisetz T.},
    Key = {MABh},
    Pages = {for Peking 264b8-408b7 (p.108-166) And for Derge 220b1-348a7},
    Publisher = {Tokyo : Suzuki Research Foundation, 1962},
    Title = {Candrak{\=\i}rti's Dbu Ma La 'Jug Pa'i Bshad Ba Shes Bya Ba (Tibetan translation of Madhyamak{\=a}vat{\=a}rabh{\=a}{\d s}ya)},
    url = "https://www.tbrc.org/#library_work_ViewByOutline-O1GS60111GS36115%7CW23703",
    Volume = {for Peking (Q 5263) dbu ma, 'a (vol.98) and for Derge (D 3862) dbu ma, 'a},
    Year = {1962}}

However, when this item is printed in the bibliography, it shows as follows: enter image description here

AS you see, the real book name is not printed in every first letter capital style. Please tell me how can I get such book name just as what I write in the "title". Thanks.

  • Off-topic: For entries of type @incollection, one should provide an author field. – Mico Nov 23 '17 at 15:41
  • @Mico I don't write Auther on purpose because I don't want it printed in my Biblio. According to an academic custom in our field, we need to print the identifying key (MABh for this case), but I don't know how to change the "author-year" system in Bibtex if I lay down the author's name there. – King Chung Lo Nov 23 '17 at 15:57

The apalike bibliography style practices "sentence style" for the contents of the title field. If you don't want to allow this and, instead, wish to preserve the existing capitalization patterns, simply encase the contents of the title field in an extra pair of curly braces:

Title = {{Candrak{\=\i}rti's Dbu Ma La 'Jug Pa'i Bshad Ba Shes Bya Ba 
          (Tibetan translation of Madhyamak{\=a}vat{\=a}rabh{\=a}{\d s}ya)}},
