I want to use Chicago style. I wrote all citation in bib latex file I used google scholar by writing the title of paper then I chose Chicago but it looks like they are missing usually information about the paper. I have two questions:

  • Should I write the citation manually instead of using google scholar help?

  • I have a paper edited by two persons in university so when I put the name of university in publisher It didn't appear in citation. Where should I put the university name and the names of people edited the paper?

This is my citation:

  title={New methodologies for valuing derivatives},
  author={Paskov, Spassimir},
  journal={Mathematics of Derivative Securities,S. Pliska and M. Dempster, eds.},
  pages={545--582 },
  publisher={Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK.}

Note: I put names of editors with journal Do I have to specify Chicago style in latex file ? I used \bibliographystyle{plain}

  • It is very unusual to include the names of a jounal's editors in the journal field. What are you trying to achieve? I'm also not aware of a bibliography style that shows the contents of the publisher field for entries of type @article. If you wanted to help your readers locate the publication in question, you should really make an effort to provide volume and number fields.

  • Your write-up is quite confusing: For articles published in (academic) journals, there are usually authors but no editors. Is the entry type @article maybe incorrect? Should the entry type maybe be @incollection?

The basic issue is that you're using an inappropriate entry type. The @article entry type should be used exclusively for articles published in (academic) journals. You ought to be using the @incollection entry type, maybe along the following lines:

You will do yourself a huge service if you take the time to learn what some of BibTeX's many entry types are, learn when to use various types, and especially learn when not to use some entry types. Among the commonly encountered entry types are @article, @book, @incollection, @techreport, and @misc; the latter is the catch-all entry type.

  author    = "S. H. Paskow",
  title     = "New methodologies for valuing derivatives",
  year      = 1997,
  pages     = "545--582",
  chapter   = 27,
  booktitle = "Mathematics of Derivative Securities",
  editor    = "M. A. H. Dempster and S. R. Pliska",
  publisher = "Cambridge University Press",
  address   = "Cambridge,~UK",


  • Thank you so much.
