There are at least two answers in standard LaTeX on how to add hyperlinks in the bibliography using the DOI or URL fields (here and there). However, I can't reproduce these results in LyX.

Ideally, I would like to reproduce the American Economic Review style, where a bullet on the left of the reference links to the DOI or URL field (see figure below). Ideally, I would also use the option Natbib (BibTeX) of LyX, as it is the one I am currently using. That being said, any solution to add hyperlinks in the references is welcome, e.g. one that makes the titles clickable.

  • it would be easier if you would switch to biblatex as suggested by one of your tags. biblatex has full hyperref integration. For natbib it depends on the bibtex style. – Ulrike Fischer Feb 1 at 16:20
  • Ok why not but how can I do that then? – bixiou Feb 3 at 10:41
  • By reading the documentation wiki.lyx.org/BibTeX/Biblatex – Ulrike Fischer Feb 3 at 10:43
  • This is not helping. First, the documentation does not address my question. Second, it doesn't work for me to use Biblatex, because I run into a Biber error: unrecognized path "C:/..." while I am on linux and there is no path starting with "C:/..." in my LyX file. Not mentioning the fact that I don't know how to load my custom bib style with biblatex. – bixiou Feb 7 at 1:07
  • Sorry I don't use lyx and can't help you to set it up. I know that people are using biblatex there successfully. You could ask the lux support if the documentation isn't working for you. – Ulrike Fischer Feb 7 at 7:05
