# Quotes and commas in \bibitem

I have followed Converting to bibitem in LaTeX to convert into the \bibitem format.

However, the results are not as good as when I would have used the regular references.bib file.

For example, one of my entries in the references.bib file is :

@inproceedings{dansereau2013decoding,
title={Decoding, calibration and rectification for lenselet-based plenoptic cameras},
author={Dansereau, Donald G and Pizarro, Oscar and Williams, Stefan B},
booktitle={Proceedings of the IEEE conference on computer vision and pattern recognition},
pages={1027--1034},
year={2013}
}


This generates in my pdf as :

Now after compiling the latex file and generating the pdf, I copy the required \bibitem lines from the output.bbl log file which is obtained :

\bibitem{dansereau2013decoding}
D.~G. Dansereau, O.~Pizarro, and S.~B. Williams, Decoding, calibration and
rectification for lenselet-based plenoptic cameras,'' in {\em Proceedings of
the IEEE conference on computer vision and pattern recognition},
pp.~1027--1034, 2013.


But now my pdf file generates as the following with this bibitem format :

The quotes and commas have drastically changed and do not look as presentable as the first result. How do I generate the \bibitem contents from the .bbl files to get the same style of commas and quotes like I would have using a simple references.bib file

EDIT:

I had inserted my orginal referneces.bib file using :

\bibliographystyle{ieeetr}
\footnotesize
\bibliography{references.bib}


The new article with the bibitem format has :

\reftitle{References}
\begin{thebibliography}{999}
\bibitem{dansereau2013decoding}
D.~G. Dansereau, O.~Pizarro, and S.~B. Williams, Decoding, calibration and
rectification for lenselet-based plenoptic cameras,'' in {\em Proceedings of
the IEEE conference on computer vision and pattern recognition},
pp.~1027--1034, 2013.

• We need more information here. Conversion from .bib to .bbl is not automatic. It is controlled by a bibtex style which also governs the formatting you want to change. But you never mentions which style you are currently using – daleif Mar 2 at 14:38
• You seem to be using Palatino as the text font and that’s precisely the shape the quotes have in the font. – egreg Mar 2 at 14:40
• @daleif I have provided information on the bibtex styles. Hope that gives a better insight – Joshitha R Mar 2 at 14:47
• @egreg the new article does not have a mention of the Palatino font anywhere – Joshitha R Mar 2 at 14:48
• @JoshithaR There are a few packages that provide it: mathpazo or newpxtext – egreg Mar 2 at 15:43
