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
  • 4
    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, 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.

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


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):

  author =       {Donald E. Knuth},
  title =        {The {\TeX}book},
  publisher =    {Addison Wesley},
  address =      {Reading, MA, USA},
  year =         1986,
  ISBN =         "0-201-13447-0",

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
