I am using a custom class for my document where I implemented the solution given here to show the title of article items within the apsrev4-1 bibliography style. However I am not succeeding with it. With the MWE below I obtain the following.

enter image description here

Could anybody help me with having the article items showing their title?



% Load class

% Start document





%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% Identification %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\NeedsTeXFormat{LaTeX2e} % sets the LATEX version for the class to work
\ProvidesClass{MyClass} % identification of the class

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% Preliminary declarations %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\LoadClass[a4paper,12pt]{report} % loads the class report

%----------------------- General use packages -----------------------
\RequirePackage[english]{babel} % management of culturally-determined typographical (and other) rules for the document language
\RequirePackage[utf8]{inputenc} % use of non-ASCII characters
\RequirePackage[T1]{fontenc} % use of even more non-ASCII characters (T1 font enconding)
\RequirePackage[section]{placeins} % defines a \FloatBarrier command, beyond which floats may not pass, it automatically ensures floats do not go into the next section
\RequirePackage{amsmath,amsthm,amssymb} % load the AMS-LaTeX bundle
\RequirePackage{bm} % more careful way of making maths objects bold
\RequirePackage{mathtools} % extends the amsmath functions to provide additional formatting options and to clean up some of the more common problems with math typesetting
\RequirePackage{float} % include [H] option for figures and tables
\RequirePackage{graphicx} % provides a key-value interface for optional arguments to the \includegraphics command
\RequirePackage[justification=centering]{caption} % provides many ways to customise the captions in floating environments such figure and table - here loaded to provide centred captions
\RequirePackage{subcaption} % facilities analagous to those of the caption package, when writing captions for subfigures and the like

% Package for customising citations (especially author-year citation schemes) when using BibTeX
% numbers: allow numeric citations
% square: enable squared brackets
% sectionbib: to be used with the package chapterbib to add the bibliography to the table of contents as a unnumbered section instead of an unnumbered chapter

    abstract={Explicit mathematical functions are used for 2D curve definition for airfoil design. Flowphe-nomena-oriented parameters control geometrical and aerodynamic properties. Airfoil shapes are blended with known analytical section formulae. Generic variable camber wing sections and multicomponent airfoils are generated. For 3D wing definition all parameters are made functions of a third spanwise coordinate. High lift systems are defined kinematically by modelled track gear geometries, translation and rotation in 3D space. Examples for parameter variation in numerical optimization, mechanical adaptation and for unsteady coupling of flow and configuration are presented.},

    abstract = { Within an aerodynamic shape optimization framework, an efficient shape parameterization and deformation scheme is critical to allow flexible deformation of the surface with the maximum possible design space coverage. Numerous approaches have been developed for the geometric representation of airfoils. A fundamental approach is considered here from the geometric perspective; and a method is presented to allow the derivation of efficient, generic, and orthogonal airfoil geometric design variables. This is achieved by the mathematical decomposition of a training library. The resulting geometric modes are independent of a parameterization scheme, surface and volume mesh, and flow solver; thus, they are generally applicable. However, these modes are dependent on the training library, and so a benchmark performance measure, called the airfoil technology factor, has also been incorporated into the scheme to allow intelligent metric-based filtering, or design space reduction, of the training library to ensure efficient airfoil deformation modes are extracted. Results are presented for several geometric shape recovery problems, using two optimization approaches, and it is shown that these mathematically extracted degrees of freedom perform particularly well in all cases, showing excellent design space coverage. These design variables are also shown to outperform those based on other widely used approaches; the Hicks–Henne “bump” functions and a linear (deformative) approximation to Sobieczky's parametric section parameterization are considered. }

    Just out of curiosity: Why did you set the biblatex tag? – Mico Sep 25 '19 at 14:08
  • @Mico I am using TeXstudio and in bibliography - type I have BibLaTex selected, so I guess I am using it. I am not a great expert, so please let me know if I did something wrong. – fma Sep 26 '19 at 8:06

    @fma: In your preamble you don't load the biblatex package, so you actually don't use it. Instead you use the natbib package. – leandriis Sep 26 '19 at 21:02
  • @leandriis I thought one did not exlcude the other, thanks for pointing that out. – fma Sep 28 '19 at 10:58
