I'm attempting to write a document with a full IEEE citation in a footnote, using biblatex following this question: revtex 4-1: Writing a full citation in footnote. A minimal version of my tex is:

% just to make a small output for this test
title = {Paper Title},
author = {cwindolf},
booktitle = {Book},
editor = {Editors},
pages = {1},
year = {2019},
publisher = {TeX.SE},
url = {tex.stackexchange.com}
Um \footcite{paper}.

which produces the not-so-great output:

enter image description here

If I get rid of the style=ieee, the citation does show up in the footnote:

I'm wondering if there's any way to do this in IEEE style. Thanks!

  • With citestyle=verbose-ibid, bibstyle=ieee, you should get IEEE style in the footnote on first citation, but subsequent citations of the same work will use a shortened author-title scheme. You could switch to full style=ieee, and use \footfullcite...

Building on moewe's suggestion, I found an acceptable solution by setting my default citation style for \autocite{} to use \footfullcite{}.

% preamble
% Redefine the footnote style we specify as a default for autocite
% Use semicolon as a delimiter to partially support (NOT FULLY) \autocites
% ...
