I downloaded this BST file for my LaTeX documents, however TeXstudio (using MiKTeX). I installed it to this folder: C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\bibtex\bst\bibtex. However, TeXstudio cannot even by that way locate and use that bibtex style. Where should I place it? I cannot find any folder in my user folder nor in AppData folder that may correspond to MiKTeX.

I found some questions with some answers, but it doesn't look like I can find solution there. I don't even know how can I configure MiKTeX/TeXstudio.

  • You should not install files manually into the folder structure managed by your TeX system. That means that everything below C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9 is off-limits for manual installations. The simplest solution for single-use (or occasional use) is to put the .bst file into the same folder as your main .tex file, that way it will definitely be found. – moewe Mar 28 '20 at 16:47
  • If you want a more global setup in MikTeX, you need to create a local texmf tree as described in tex.stackexchange.com/q/69483/35864. Note that within that local texmf tree your file must reside in the correct place. So your .bst file would have to go into <localtexmf>/bibtex/bst/ or even better <localtexmf>/bibtex/bst/czechiso. – moewe Mar 28 '20 at 16:51
  • Note that the package biblatex-iso690, which implements ISO 690 following the local Czech/Slovak version of the norm, was updated only a few days ago. That package is available in MikTeX without the need for manual installations. So maybe that is a good alternative. – moewe Mar 28 '20 at 16:53
  • So how do I install the official package? Do I use \bibliographystyle{biblatex-iso690}? – Polda18 Mar 28 '20 at 17:20
  • biblatex-iso690 comes with different styles that you use like all biblatex styles with the style option of biblatex. For example \usepackage[style=iso-authoryear]{biblatex}. Please have a look at the documentation of biblatex-iso690 and/or a basic biblatex tutorial for more details. – moewe Mar 28 '20 at 18:59
