First of all, sorry for the maybe noobish question, but I am getting into LaTeX again, and feel rather new, and currently I am struggling with getting my bibliography to be as I want to. Currently I just use:

\usepackage[style=phys, backend=bibtex, sorting=none, maxbibnames=3, minbibnames=3, biblabel=brackets]{biblatex},

and the result is:

enter image description here

I would really like it to look more like this:

enter image description here

Hence, a period after the names. Title not in quotes. Period after title. Name of the journal followed by year;volume:pages.

IS this easy achievable, or does it need a lot of tweaking?

  • You can patch the style using package xpatch, which has dedicated patching commands (\xpatchbibmacro, \xpatchbibdriver, &c.).

That looks pretty much like the style produced by biblatex-nejm.


\usepackage[style=nejm, backend=biber]{biblatex}
