For a research project, I would like to create a literature list that organizes a relatively large number of references into different categories, using biblatex. I would like to do this by having multiple .bib files, and then be capable of printing all references in such a file with a single command, without having to cite them first.

Is there a way to do this?

  • tex.stackexchange.com/q/35279/35864 + \nocite{*} should get you started. If that does not work, please describe in more details what you tried (post an example document and example .bib files) and explain how it did not work for you. – moewe Nov 1 at 16:22
  • Did the link help you? Or did it not do what you hoped to achieve? – moewe Nov 4 at 16:12
  • Oh yes, sorry for not responding. Yes indeed, it did help. I didn't get around to try the xml file, but that should be routine. You can link this as a double, if you like. – mar_cel Nov 5 at 17:06
  • You don't need to use the .bcf/XML thing, the code for the document preamble (of your .tex file) is at the end of the answer, usually that is a bit easier to manage. – moewe Nov 5 at 17:08
