# How to have the Bibliography style that is similar to chem-angew?

How can I get this Bibliography style https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/110315/235725 with a number included on the left as [1] and the same for the cite part on the document?

From the Overleaf link https://www.overleaf.com/learn/latex/Biblatex_bibliography_styles the most similar that I found was the chem-angew and the "More styles can be found in the CTAN biblatex site" link is broken.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[backend=biber,style=chem-angew,sorting=nty]{biblatex}
\cite{companion}
\printbibliography \end{document}


• Welcome to TeX SX! What is missing in the chem-angew style? – Bernard Feb 20 at 19:24
• @Bernard The year and the vol?. The year shouldn't be in bolds and the vol. shouldn't be in the middle of the year and the pages. It's vol., year, pages. – Verónica Rmz. Feb 20 at 19:31
• Could you please post a complete code, that we can compile as is, in order to test what can be done? – Bernard Feb 20 at 19:34
• @Bernard .Done. – Verónica Rmz. Feb 20 at 19:43
• Is the vol. 322? or what's that number? – Verónica Rmz. Feb 20 at 21:53

The style from Biblatex style short name is just the biblatex standard style authortitle with two small adjustments: Name initials with giveninits (which was called firstinits a while ago) and different name order with \DeclareNameAlias{sortname}{given-family} (\DeclareNameAlias{sortname}{first-last} in old biblatex versions).

If you switch to the standard numeric style, the name format will already be as desired, so we only need to make the given names to come out as initials with giveninits=true,.

\documentclass[british]{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{babel}
\usepackage{csquotes}

\usepackage[backend=biber, style=numeric, giveninits]{biblatex}

\begin{document}
Lorem \autocite{sigfridsson,worman,nussbaum}

\printbibliography
\end{document}


As Bernard points out in the comments, you can use \DeclareFieldFormat{date}{#1} if you want to stick with chem-angew but want to get rid of the bold years.

\documentclass[british]{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{babel}
\usepackage{csquotes}

\usepackage[backend=biber, style=chem-angew]{biblatex}

\DeclareFieldFormat{date}{#1}
