I have the same question as:

Any updates as on MacTeX 2019?

I am asking a simple way to suppress fields provided in bst, but not by manually modifying entries in bib files.

Please note:

  • I would like to use bibtex and not biblatex, at least for the particular paper I am working on right now, wanting to use jecon.bst. No advice thus is necessary to switch to biblatex. (Though I am not particularly good, I am already using biblatex to some extent in other occasions.)
  • I am asking whether there is a simple method like adding options in the preamble.

Many thanks in advance.

    In general there is no simple setting in the preamble you could use. If you are using BibTeX there are essentially two strategies: (1) Modify the .bib file. This doesn't have to happen manually. You could for example use bibtool or Biber's --tool mode. See tex.stackexchange.com/q/415007/35864. (2) Modify the .bst file to ignore certain fields. This is pretty much what the second part of Alan's answer at tex.stackexchange.com/a/263392/35864 does. – moewe Apr 23 at 5:10
  • Very few .bst files offer an additional option for customisation via control entries in the .bib file. Some have a few simple function definitions at the beginning for customisation. But it is unlikely that any of that would help you in removing fields. – moewe Apr 23 at 5:14

    it is usually fairly simple to modify a copy of the bst bibtex style but the details depend on the style and which field you want to drop. – David Carlisle Apr 23 at 7:00
