Custom references page with additional line breaks

Is it possible by any chance to style the references page to match this:

[1] The Author, The Author2
"The title of some kind"
3rd. edition ISBN: xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx

• I've asked the Latex mods if they want this. On our sites we prefer some evidence of having "had a go" at solving problems rather than just outright asking for code/markup. – Kev May 20 '12 at 2:18
• @Kev, i have read few articles but i cannot seem to find the "proper" way and perhaps a different which is less messy than normally. So i made the question a bit more open to receive alternatives. It seems unfair to become punished on this behalf. But thanks anyway. – JavaCake May 20 '12 at 8:52

You can add the openbib option to the global options, for instance

\documentclass[a4paper,openbib]{report}


All the standard classes should honor it, but it may depend on the bibliography style you're using. More information is needed if this doesn't work.

Here's an example (the filecontents* environment is just to have a unique input file):

\begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib}
@Book{knuth:texbook,
author =       {Donald E. Knuth},
title =        {The {\TeX}book},
year =         1986,
ISBN =         "0-201-13447-0",
}
\end{filecontents*}
\documentclass[a4paper,openbib]{report}

\usepackage[numbers]{natbib}
\begin{document}

\nocite{*}
\bibliographystyle{plainnat}
\bibliography{\jobname}

\end{document}


I guess you need to create your own bibtex style. It is normally not an easy task, but you can use a GUI tool for doing this easily as described here: http://bib-it.sourceforge.net/help/generateBibstyle.php
