The current version of biblatex-chicago appears to be able to now use its related feature for reviews, essentially implementing the functionality provided by moewe in his answer to this question.

However, with more than one reviewed book, this solution inserts newlines between reviewed works.

% !TEX TS-program = xelatexmk
\usepackage[authordate, backend=biber]{biblatex-chicago}

    Author = {Reviewer, Ronald},
    Date = {2010},
    Journal = {Journal of Reviews},
    Volume = {1},
    Title = {Reviewtitle},
    Related = {Author2000a, Author2000b, Author2000c}, 
    Relatedtype = {reviewof},

    Title = {Title A},
    Author = {Author, Anton},
    Date = {2000},

    Title = {Title B},
    Author = {Buthor, Bruno},
    Date = {2000},

    Title = {Title C},
    Author = {Cuthor, Cesar},
    Date = {2001},



... gives ...

Reviewer, Ronald. 2010. “Reviewtitle.” Review of Title A, by Anton Author,
Title B, by Bruno Buthor,
Title C, by Cesar Cuthor. Journal of Reviews 1.

Short of redefining the reviewof macro using moewe's code from the linked answer or contacting the biblatex-chicago developer (which I'll do though), is there any quick hack for just getting rid of the newlines?


With the standard styles you could redefine the relateddelim per relatedtype and could use


This is a feature introduced in version 3.7 almost two years ago, see https://github.com/plk/biblatex/issues/455.

biblatex-chicago can't deal with relatedtype-specific relateddelims yet and so the easiest way is to redefine the 'global' macro


Of course that affects other relatedtypes as well.

I suggest you contact the maintainer and ask him to implement the relatedtype-specific relateddelim (possibly with a more sensible default for \relateddelimreviewof). If you need a type-specific work-around now, let me know, I will see what I can do.

Since the image upload does not seem to be working, I can't upload an image, so you have to trust me on this.

  • Thank you, this is perfect. Just one thing. In your solution in the other thread, you have ", and" connecting the last one of the related entries. Any way to get this with this version too? While I'm unsure how Chicago wants it (I can't find anything in the manual), the "and" makes sense to me. ... I will certainly contact David though (I have a few other suggestions too). – jan Aug 7 '18 at 16:28

    @jan For the "and" use \renewcommand*{\relateddelim}{\ifnumless{\value{bbx:relatedcount}}{\value{bbx:relatedtotal}}{\multilistdelim}{\finallistdelim}} instead. – moewe Aug 7 '18 at 19:51
  • Great, perfect! – jan Aug 7 '18 at 21:11
