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?

    @Seamus: You should convert your comment into an answer. Perhaps refer to the \footfullcite command which always prints a full citation.

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

Here is text\footfullcite{jones00}

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.

    \usepackage[backend=bibtex]{biblatex} solved my issue !

  • 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!

I have used this code




    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}

with the following bibliography entry 
    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...
