I want to switch the field year and pages for the journal entry, so the field year is always last.


    title = {Optical Analysis of Polymer Powder Materials for {{Selective Laser Sintering}}},
    author = {Laumer, T. and Stichel, T. and Nagulin, K. and Schmidt, M.},
    date = {2016},
    journaltitle = {Polymer Testing},
    volume = {56},
    pages = {207--213},
    langid = {english}

\usepackage[backend=biber, style=ext-numeric]{biblatex}

There are many possible ways to do that and which is best for you depends on what exactly you expect when your .bib entry features additional fields (e.g. note, doi, ...).

The following is not too long and gives reasonable output

\usepackage[backend=biber, style=ext-numeric]{biblatex}






Emma Sigfridsson and Ulf Ryde. “Comparison of methods for deriving atomic charges from the electrostatic potential and moments”. In: Journal of Computational Chemistry, 19, 4, pp. 377–395, 1998. doi: 10.1002/(SICI)1096-987X(199803)19:4<377::AID-JCC1>3.0.CO;2-P.

Note that this is specific to the @article entry type. If you want to move year and pages for @inbook or @incollection a different approach is needed.

  • Thanks! How would I go about doing the same for a @incollection?

  • @Johannes Depends on the details of the desired result. In general I would say redefine the bibmacro chapter+pages to do nothing and print chapter and pages in the bibmacro publisher+location+date (which in biblatex-ext is defined via pubinstorg+location+date). If you'd like a hand with that, I suggest you ask a new question.
