I have written the following entry for a URL in ieeetr bib style:

 title={Introducing the Office (2007) Open XML File Formats},

The result is the shown below:

[3] “Introducing the office (2007) open xml file formats.”

No URL and no date are shown.

UPDATE: The code for that is:


\title{The title}

The abstract goes here.



The file bibs.bib contains @misc which I pasted above.

I use TexWorks, where I run PDFlaTeX->BibTex->PDFLaTeX->PDFLaTeX.

What should I do?

    Which options do you pass to biblatex? – Andrew Swann Mar 29 at 16:18
  • In the question body you mention IEEE-tran (which is a BibTeX style), but your question is tagged with biblatex. There is biblatex-ieee for biblatex, but you can't use IEEEtran.bst together with that package. Can you please clarify which package/bibliography method you use? Ideally you would do that in an MWE (tex.meta.stackexchange.com/q/228/35864). – moewe Mar 29 at 16:23

    ieeetr is really old. Did you try the newer IEEEtran? (As recommended in the IEEEtran docs: mirrors.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/IEEEtran/… pt. XIII.C) – moewe Mar 29 at 17:14
