I want to print an online reference (website) exactly as below:

RedHat Corporation. Understanding Virtualization. Accessed: Mar. 21, 2019. [Online]. Available: https://www.redhat.com/en/ topics/virtualization.

I am trying .bib entries with @misc, @electronic, and @online (using Biber) unfortunately, I am unable to print the reference as shown above.

I would appreciate if someone can provide .bib entries for printing different form of online website referencing for instance with author or without author name, and if an online reference has a publication date (website text with date mentioned).

  • Please provide a minimal working example with bibliography (MWEB) – DG' Jan 6 at 12:22
  • You mention IEEE style in the title, but according to ieee-dataport.org/sites/default/files/analysis/27/… IEEE style is slightly different. The output I get from biblatex-ieee (style=ieee,) for a straightforward entry for the reference you show looks pretty much like the online sources in this link. – moewe Jan 7 at 20:26
  • Thank you for the information and link to the document. Inside document I found as follows: General Internet Site [2] J. Geralds, “Sega Ends Production of Dreamcast,” vnunet.com, para. 2, Jan. 31, 2007. [Online]. Available: nli.vnunet.com/news/1116995. [Accessed Sept. 12, 2007]. – Sher khan Jan 7 at 23:22
  • I want to print exactly: General Internet website reference but with no author name. – Sher khan Jan 7 at 23:24

With no MWE is very difficult to figure out exactly what you want, but maybe this could be useful as a starting point:




The content of the MyBib.bib file is:

  title = {Red Hat corporation},
  subtitle = {Understandig Virtualization},
  url = {https://www.redhat.com/en},
  urldate = {2019-03-21}

The resulting output: enter image description here

  • Thank you !. I need to print like as follows: RedHat Corporation. Understanding Virtualization. Accessed: Mar. 21, 2019. [Online]. Available: redhat.com/en topics/virtualization. – Sher khan Jan 7 at 23:17
  • MWE: \documentclass[12pt,a4paper,openright,final,twoside,onecolumn]{memoir} \begin{document} %Biber using IEEE style for proper UTF-8 support \usepackage[backend=biber,style=ieee,sorting=none]{biblatex} \addbibresource{references.bib} %Print all used references \begingroup \renewcommand{\bibfont}{\footnotesize} %Redefine References name \defbibheading{bibliography}[References]{ \chapter{#1} } \SingleSpacing \setlength\bibitemsep{4pt} \printbibliography[heading=bibliography] \endgroup \end document – Sher khan Jan 7 at 23:30
  • @moewe could you please answer my question? – Sher khan Jan 8 at 10:55

Finally, after some research I have a solution to my own question.

\documentclass{article} \usepackage{xurl} \usepackage[backend=biber,style=ieee,sorting=none]{biblatex} \addbibresource{reference.bib} \DeclareFieldFormat*{title}{#1} \begin{document} \cite{Red} \printbibliography \end{document}

Biblatex Entry: @misc{Red, title= {{RedHat Corporation.} \textit{Understanding Virtualization.}}, url ="https://www.redhat.com/en/topics/virtualization", month = "", year = "", note= "Accessed: Mar. 21, 2019", }

Output: enter image description here
