# Place bibliography items at bottom of frame

Is there an easy way to add bibliography items to the bottom of a frame where they are referenced?

I am using Beamer and Biblatex.

• I suppose biblatex's \footcite doesn't work as you want it to? Nov 23 '10 at 16:07
• @Seamus: You should convert your comment into an answer. Perhaps refer to the \footfullcite command which always prints a full citation. Nov 26 '10 at 19:52
• @lockstep OK. Now we're even Nov 26 '10 at 20:14

BibLaTeX's \footfullcite (hat tip to lockstep) might do what you want.

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{biblatex}
\bibliography{foo}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
Here is text\footfullcite{jones00}
\end{frame}
\end{document}


Will display the full reference to jones00 from the foo.bib bibliography.

• As, I compile the code you described above. The citation is not printed in the end of slide. Instead it is printing whatever is inside the \footfullcite{jones00} i-e jones00 is printed. It is not picking the reference from ff.bib (as foo.bib is in the same folder). What would be the possible cause of it? thanks

• Have you run biber and then latex again? In any case, this seems like a separate issue from the one discussed here. Jan 15 '15 at 19:27
• \usepackage[backend=bibtex]{biblatex} solved my issue !

• I am having same issue as kaka even with \usepackage[backend=bibtex]{biblatex} Jul 28 '15 at 15:57
• I was also having issues even when adding \usepackage[backend=bibtex]{bib latex}. In the following post, Joseph Wright suggests adding \makeatletter \def\blx@maxline{77} \makeatother after loading biblatex: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/311426/…. This worked for me! Aug 17 '17 at 15:59

I have used this code

\documentclass{beamer}

%\usepackage{biblatex}

\usepackage[backend=bibtex]{biblatex}

%------------------------------------------------
\begin{frame}
Here is text \footfullcite{Vitay2014}. % this writes ref01 in footnote
Here is text \fullcite{Vitay2014}. % this writes ref01 in place
Here is text\footfullcite{Vitay2014}
\end{frame}
%------------------------------------------------

with the following bibliography entry
@article{Vitay2014,
title = {Timing and expectation of reward: a neuro-computational
model of the afferents to the ventral tegmental area.},
author = {Vitay, Julien and Hamker, Fred H.},
journal = {Frontiers in Neurorobotics},
year = {2014},
volume = {8},
number = {4},
pages = {1--14},
}


It does not print reference in the footnote of the slide...
