I am writing my master thesis and started to work with biblatex. It is definitely easier than bibtex. I discovered that there is a special online type for websites and I wanted to use it, because I use quite some websites.

I want to list the websites in the following style:

Author, "Title", note, (date), URL, (URLdate)

Because of this I use the IEEE style and change it when there is a dot, but I can´t get a comma after the author and after the website.

I only get the following: What I get

Wich is

Author. "Title". note, (date), URL, (URLdate)

I tried to add the comma with the following, but this doesn´t work.

\DeclareFieldFormat[online]{tile}{\enquote{#1}\addcomma}
\DeclareFieldFormat[online]{author}{#1\addcomma}

Till now I used the type misc for websites, thats why i included it in my example code

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper,oneside,numbers=noenddot]{scrbook}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} 
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lmodern} 
\usepackage[ngerman]{babel} 
\usepackage[babel,german=quotes]{csquotes}
\usepackage[hyphens]{url}
\usepackage[backend=biber,style=ieee,dashed=false]{biblatex}
\addbibresource{frage.bib}

\stdpunctuation
\DeclareFieldFormat[online]{note}{#1\addcomma}
\DeclareFieldFormat[misc]{date}{(#1)\addcomma}
\renewcommand*{\finentrypunct}{}


\DeclareFieldFormat[online]{tile}{\enquote{#1}\addcomma}%does not work
\DeclareFieldFormat[online]{author}{#1\addcomma}%does not work

\begin{filecontents}{frage.bib}
@online{test,
author = {{Internationales Elektrotechnisches Wörterbuch}},
title = {{Definition Verriegelung}},
year = {2017},
url = {https://www2.dke.de/de/Online-Service/DKE-IEV/Seiten/IEV-Woerterbuch.aspx#},
urldate = {2020-09-23},
note = {IEV-Nr. 395 -07-120},
}
@misc{IEVVerriegelung,
author  = {{Internationales Elektrotechnisches Wörterbuch}},
title = {{Definition Verriegelung}},
date = 2017,
url = {https://www2.dke.de/de/Online-Service/DKE-IEV/Seiten/IEV-Woerterbuch.aspx#},
urldate = {2020-09-23},
note = {IEV-Nr. 395 -07-120},
}
\end{filecontents}
\begin{document}
\cite{test} \cite{IEVVerriegelung}
\printbibliography[title=Literaturverzeichnis]

    Interesting question, first of there seems to be a typo: title not tile. Is it interesting that if one removes [online] then the changes does apply to misc but not online, why is online different

    author is a name, so its format should be changed with \DeclareNameFormat[online]{author}... May 3, 2021 at 13:52
  • @daleif thanks for hint about the typo, but this still doesn´t change anything and your right about about misc

  • @UlrikeFischer thanks for that, when i change it to \DeclareNameFormat[online]{author}... than i get family=Internationales ElektrotechnischesWörterbuch, familyi=I., which has probely something to do with Biblatex 3-3 name formatting

You can use the xpatch package to patch the bibliography driver for online entries. For use inside biblatex macros you should use \mkbibquote instead of the csquotes command \enquote.

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper,oneside,numbers=noenddot]{scrbook}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} 
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lmodern} 

\usepackage[ngerman]{babel} 
\usepackage[babel,german=quotes]{csquotes}
\usepackage[hyphens]{url}
\usepackage[backend=biber,style=ieee,dashed=false]{biblatex}
\usepackage{xpatch}
\addbibresource{frage.bib}

\stdpunctuation
\DeclareFieldFormat[misc]{date}{(#1)\addcomma}
\renewcommand*{\finentrypunct}{}

\usepackage{xpatch}
\DeclareFieldFormat[online]{title}{\mkbibquote{#1}\addcomma}
\xpatchbibdriver{online}{\adddot}{\addcomma}{}{}
\xpatchbibdriver{online}{\adddot}{\addcomma}{}{}
\begin{filecontents}{frage.bib}
@online{test,
author = {{Internationales Elektrotechnisches Wörterbuch}},
title = {{Definition Verriegelung}},
year = {2017},
url = {https://www2.dke.de/de/Online-Service/DKE-IEV/Seiten/IEV-Woerterbuch.aspx#},
urldate = {2020-09-23},
note = {IEV-Nr. 395 -07-120},
}
@misc{IEVVerriegelung,
author  = {{Internationales Elektrotechnisches Wörterbuch}},
title = {{Definition Verriegelung}},
date = 2017,
url = {https://www2.dke.de/de/Online-Service/DKE-IEV/Seiten/IEV-Woerterbuch.aspx#},
urldate = {2020-09-23},
note = {IEV-Nr. 395 -07-120},
}
\end{filecontents}
\begin{document}
\cite{test} \cite{IEVVerriegelung}
\printbibliography[title=Literaturverzeichnis]
\end{document}

  • Thanks, that add the coma where I want it. I also want to change the dot after the note to comma. I can do that with \DeclareFieldFormat[online]{note}{#1\addcomma}, is there also a way with xpatch?

Instead of adjusting the field formats, it is easier and cleaner to change the driver: (Some styles use commands for the punctuation which can be adapted, but yours not).

\DeclareBibliographyDriver{online}{%
  \usebibmacro{bibindex}%
  \usebibmacro{begentry}%
  \usebibmacro{author/editor+others/translator+others}%
  \setunit{\addcomma\addspace}% <--- comma
  \usebibmacro{title}%
  \setunit{\addcomma\addspace}% <--- comma
  \printlist{language}%
  \setunit{\adddot\addspace}%
  \usebibmacro{byauthor}%
  \setunit{\adddot\addspace}%
  \usebibmacro{byeditor+others}%
  \setunit{\adddot\addspace}%
  \printfield{version}%
  \setunit{\adddot\addspace}%
  \printfield{note}%
  \setunit{\addcomma\addspace}% <-- comma ?
  \printlist{organization}%
  \setunit{\adddot\addspace}%
  \iftoggle{bbx:eprint}
    {\usebibmacro{eprint}}
    {}%
  \setunit{\adddot\addspace}%
  \printtext[parens]{\usebibmacro{date}}%
  \newunit\newblock
  \usebibmacro{url+urldate}%
  \setunit{\adddot\addspace}%
  \usebibmacro{addendum+pubstate}%
  \setunit{\bibpagerefpunct}\newblock
  \usebibmacro{pageref}%
  \newunit\newblock
  \iftoggle{bbx:related}
    {\usebibmacro{related:init}%
     \usebibmacro{related}}
    {}%
  \usebibmacro{finentry}}

  • Thanks, i tried it and now I have a comma after the author. But I still have no comma after the title. The result is the following Internationales Elektrotechnisches Wörterbuch, „Definition Verriegelung.“ IEV-Nr. 395 -07-120, (2017), Adresse: https://www2.dke.de/de/Online-Service/DKEIEV/ Seiten/IEV-Woerterbuch.aspx# (besucht am 23. 09. 2020) And with \stdpunctuation can change that to Internationales Elektrotechnisches Wörterbuch, „Definition Verriegelung“. IEV..
