how can i add the citation style "iso 690 numeric" to a lyx document? ive installed the package for miktex but it didnt help i've read that i need some kind of a ".bst" file for that, but there is none in the package.

since the mailing lists for lyx are currently unavaible, ive desided to ask here.

    Are you referring to ctan.org/pkg/biblatex-iso690? That is a package for biblatex, a more modern package for bibliographies than the standard BibTeX system that uses .bst files. See tex.stackexchange.com/questions/299312/… and tex.stackexchange.com/questions/146159/… for some instructions for using biblatex with LyX. Use style=iso-numeric in the biblatex options.

    Also note that LyX 2.3.0 will have built-in support for biblatex (wiki.lyx.org/LyX/NewInLyX23#biblatex). 2.3.0rc1 will hopefully be announced early next week, so the final release is not too far away.

  • thanks for answers, i think i got it to work now, but i have 1 more little problem... i am from germany and ofc. the bibliography should be in german, which it is, but the dates are in english format, it should say: [21. July 2015] but it says [2015-07-21] instead, which is a nogo. Can you tell me something about that or should i contact the package author?

  • The manual says something about having to specify langid={german} in the entry in the .bib file. I did try that, but it didn't seem to have any effect on e.g. a urldate. It might not be implemented, you could post an issue at github.com/michal-h21/biblatex-iso690/issues Nov 25 '17 at 9:08
