I am using GBT7714 bibliography style for my document. For the following key:

  author       = "author",
  title        = "title",
  booktitle    = "booktitle",
  year         = "year",
  editor       = "editor",
  volume       = "volume",
  number       = "number",
  series       = "series",
  pages        = "pages",
  address      = "address",
  publisher    = "publisher",
  note         = "note",

I get the following result:

AUTHOR.title[C]//EDITOR. series:  volume    booktitle.   address:  publisher,  year:pages.

I dont know why "//" is getting printed. How to remove this?

  • because it is not `\\`.

  • @Oni would you please like to elaborate it. As a beginner, I am not sure if I quite get it

  • You presumably have a good reason for employing this particular bib style. If that's the case, you presumably would be well advised not to modify anything about the bib style file.

  • @Mico yes, this bib style is the requirement for the thesis. However, if I go to the documentation check the documentation of this bib format, "//" is nowhere to be found.

  • @DavidCarlisle thanks but I'm using overleaf.com and can't see the code.

The double slash mark is identical to "in:" which indicates this piece of work is extracted from the collection. It is specified in the GB/T 7714—2015 standard (in Chinese) but is rarely used in other styles.

If you prefer the format "Title. In: book title", you may edit the line #0 'in.booktitle := to #1.

Also, if you want to hide \\, set slash.for.extraction := to #0.
