I am try to publish my academic article in this journal https://link.springer.com/journal/10618. In instruction for authors they need reference citation to be like this:

Bailey N, Kapetanios G, Pesaran M H (2016) Exponent of cross-sectional dependence: estimation and inference. Journal of Applied Econometrics 31: 929-960. https://doi.org/10.1002/jae.2476

I am using biblatex to list my citations. I am get the citation by it is different from what journal want. But this is what I am getting:

Bailey, Natalia, George Kapetanios, and M Hashem Pesaran (2016). "Exponent of Cross-Sectional Dependence: Estimation and Inference". In: Journal of Applied Econometrics 31.6, pp. 929-960. https://doi.org/10.1002/jae.2476

This is my Latex code:

 \documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{article}
 \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
 \usepackage[style=authoryear,citetracker=true,maxcitenames=1]{biblatex}
 \AtEveryCitekey{\ifciteseen{}{\defcounter{maxnames}{2}}}
 \addbibresource{GoScholarRef.bib}
 \title{\texttt{biblatex}}

 \begin{document}
 \maketitle

  This is a simple text to test citation \parencite{bailey2016exponent} blah bla.

 \printbibliography
 \end{document}

And this is my biblatex file:

   @article{bailey2016exponent,
   title={Exponent of Cross-Sectional Dependence: Estimation and Inference},
   author={Bailey, Natalia and Kapetanios, George and Pesaran, M Hashem},
   journal={Journal of Applied Econometrics},
   volume={31},
   number={6},
   pages={929--960},
   year={2016},
   publisher={Wiley Online Library}
   doi = {https://doi.org/10.1002/jae.2476}
   }

How can I fix my code to get the exact citation format ?

    The link does not quite work. Have you made sure that they can accept a submission using biblatex? Many publishers use workflows that can for technical reasons not involve biblatex. See tex.stackexchange.com/q/12175/35864. Do they maybe have a .bst file you could use? – moewe Apr 8 '18 at 12:39
  • Thank you for your answer, fixed journal link, Springer did provide a bibliography citation style just EndNote format. But they need articles in latex format. @moewe – medo0070 Apr 8 '18 at 12:50
  • Still you should double-check that they can accept biblatex. You may have to go back to BibTeX or a fully manual bibliography if not. – moewe Apr 8 '18 at 12:52
  • In the instructions on springer.com/computer/… there is no comma before the parentheses around the year. Are you sure there must be one? – moewe Apr 8 '18 at 12:59
  • they did not mentioned it in the instruction. Unfortunately BibTeX did not helped me to list the above style. Editing is bit difficult. – medo0070 Apr 8 '18 at 13:04

You should double-check with the journal if they can accept biblatex submissions. See Biblatex: submitting to a journal

Here is a start that implements the example you gave following guidance from http://www.springer.com/computer/database+management+%26+information+retrieval/journal/10618?print_view=true&detailsPage=pltci_2554736

\documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{article}

\AtEveryCitekey{\ifciteseen{}{\defcounter{maxnames}{2}}}

\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}

  • Thank you for answer. Can split .bib to a separate file without using \usepackage{filecontents} ? Sorry for keep asking I am new to latex and try to learn bit by bit. – medo0070 Apr 8 '18 at 13:31
  • @medo0070 In general yes. filecontents is only used to make the example self-contained. If you want to submit a .tex file to your journal it depends - most journals don't want a .bib file and need a .bbl instead, in which case you can't use biblatex as mentioned in the link. – moewe Apr 8 '18 at 13:35
