# Changing bibliography style: one item at each line

Any thoughts on how I can change my style to have it in the following format?

• Can you please tell us how you produce your bibliography at the moment? The solution will crucially depend on the bibliography/citation packages (cite, natbib, jurabib, biblatex ...) and the style you use (\bibliographystyle{?}, style=?). With biblatex you could try the option block=par. – moewe Sep 22 '18 at 11:57
• Honestly, I don't have any favorite bibliography package. I'm open to any option as long as gives what I have in mind. – Daniel Sep 22 '18 at 12:43
• I think biblatex with block=par option will give what I wanted. Thanks! – Daniel Sep 22 '18 at 12:45
• Just keep in mind that biblatex is completely incompatible with natbib or other BibTeX-based bibliography and citation packages. – moewe Sep 22 '18 at 12:57

All biblatex standard styles and most contributed styles support the option block=par (or block=npar) that gives output very similar to your screenshot.

\documentclass[british]{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{babel}
\usepackage{csquotes}

\usepackage[style=numeric, block=par, backend=biber]{biblatex}

\begin{document}
\cite{sigfridsson,worman,geer,pines}
\printbibliography
\end{document}


Many BibTeX styles make use of a command called \newblock to separate blocks. If your style uses that command you could redefine it to obtain a break or (even better) use the openbib option of your document class (if supported). See also What does the command "\newblock" in bibliographies do?

\documentclass[british, openbib]{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{babel}
\usepackage{csquotes}

\begin{document}
\cite{vangennep:trans}
\bibliographystyle{plain}
\bibliography{biblatex-examples}
\end{document}


or

\renewcommand*{\newblock}{\par}
