I'm using IEEETran for my article and need to specify an Accessed on date. My references are managed by Zotero using the Better BibTeX plugin. How do I add the date so it appears in the bibliography? At the moment I have added the reference as a Web Page in Zotero.

  • Can you add a minimal reproducible example and also show us how your .bib entry looks like? Jan 27, 2023 at 15:01

    Maybe directly use the note field? For example, note = {Accessed on Jan.~28, 2023},. Jan 27, 2023 at 16:00

If you export as Better BibLaTeX, it will add the access date as urldate. With Better BibTeX, you would either have to use a postscript, or add this to the extra field: tex.urldate = <date>.

  • Thanks. This worked.
