Submitting NSF proposals requires you to submit your references in one PDF, and the rest of everything you write in another PDF.

So my challenge is to \cite{something} from my external references.tex - and also to do so without putting

\bibliographystyle{ieee}
\bibliography{bib} 

anywhere in my abstract, or anywhere else, since the references cited are supposed to be in their own pdf

i actually found a pseudo-solution, but it is really bad. it entails building the pdflatex witch

 \bibliographystyle{plain}
 \bibliography{../references/bib} 

and then deleting

 \bibliographystyle{plain}
 \bibliography{../references/bib} 

from my .tex file and building again. On the first 'build', my references cited remain with numbers instead of [?] (and my bibliography disappears because i deleted it)- but this is a bad solution because if i build a second time, all of the [numbers] turn to [?]

  • Maybe you can compile the document with the references section, and then split the resulting pdf into two parts (with pdftk or something similar)? – Marijn Jan 24 at 15:38
