I want to remove separators such as , and . from my references. Furthermore I want to position the listed data of publishing from the end of the reference to after the author names. Example shown below;


[1] Doe, J., John, A., & Davies,K. Journal, 100-200 (2021)


[1] Doe J John A and Davies K 2021 Journal 100-200

How may I do this with the packages used below?

            doi=false, isbn=false, url=false, eprint=false]{biblatex}

biblatex offers many customisable delimiters between fields and there is no simple switch to make all of them disappear. Redefining \newunitpunct is a start, but even in a simple example there are many other commands you also need to redefine. I probably missed a few things, but this should get you going.

You can load the authoryear style with \input{authoryear.bbx} to move the year from the end of the entry to after the names. But then you need to issue \defbibenvironment{bibliography} again with a definition appropriate for numeric bibliographies.

Don't suppress the title of @article entries with \DeclareFieldFormat[article]{title}{}, biblatex-nature has the option articletitle=false, for that.


  doi=false, isbn=false, url=false, eprint=false,


% must be delayed to counter authoryear's sort settings

  • Sorry for the late response. I would like to thank you for your answer however, I found that the references are now arranged in alphabetical order instead. How can I rectify this? Jan 6, 2021 at 14:40

  • This works perfectly now! Thank you. I have also noticed that the author name format changes from "Surname Initials" to "Initials Surname" after the first author. Why is this the case? Jan 6, 2021 at 15:25
