I want to cite an archive paper, which doesn't have a journal name. If I do something like this,

@article{article,
    author    = "Author",
    title     = "Title",
    year      = "2003",
    url   = "arXiv:000112"
}

my bibliography get generated like this:

Author. “Title”. In: (2015). URL : arXiv:1409.1556.

There"s no journal name in front of In. Is it possible to simply remove this "in"?

  • Biblatex defines the @online entry type, which would fit better you needs.

  • An @article always needs to have a journal/journaltitle. If your arXiv paper hasn't also been published in a journal, it probably shouldn't be an @article. You can use @online or @unpublished. See tex.stackexchange.com/q/415115/35864

You could use "@unpublished"

@unpublished{key,
  author = "Author",
  title  = "Title",
  year   = "2003",
  url   = "arXiv:000112"
}

which gives:

Author. Title. 2003. URL arXiv:000112.

To specify the Entry Type use the following syntax

\renewbibmacro{in:}{\ifentrytype{article}
    {}
    {\bibstring{in}\printunit{\intitlepunct}}
}

where you can replace "article" with any Entry Type (book, collection, periodical, proceeding . . .).

The empty braces in the second line means replacing "In:" with empty, thus deleting it (Note: you can replace the word "In:" with any other word).

"\bibstring{in}" it's just the word "In", and "\intitlepunct" it's the two points of "In".

    Note that you can edit previous posts. (I would say it is fairly unusual to post two answers to the same question, especially if the answers are so closely related.)
