when I put in


The following citation does not show the address & publisher:

    author    = "Michael Young",
    title     = "The Rise of the Meritocracy",
    year      = "1958", % Citations: 2,998
    publisher = "Thames and Hudson",
    address   = "London"

In the main text, I did:

\cite{young_1958} says ...

What comes out in my references is: Book Citation Screenshot

I suppose the alternative way to sort it out is probably to define a new citation command that asks latex to show the book's publisher & address? Further, how can I make the citation's title non-Italic?

Thank you so much!

Best, Darcy

I don't know whether it's some packages that I cited that caused the disappearance of the publisher & address, so I copy-paste all the packages here.

    Welcome to TeX.SE! Thank you for including code in your first question, it would be best if it could compile (in the future) as in begin with your \documentclass{} and end with \end{document} so that people can copy and paste it, but hopefully this is enough information for people to answer :)

  • Off-topic: tmargin=1.5in,bmargin=1.5in,lmargin=1in,rmargin=1in may be expressed more compactly as vmargin=1.5in, hmargin=1in.

1 Answer 1


(updated this answer after I received further information from the OP)

The presence of the "comment" % Citations: 2,998 in the young_1958 entry generates the following BibTeX error message:

You're missing a field name---line 8 of file mybib.bib
 :     year      = "1958", 
 :                         % Citations: 2,998
I'm skipping whatever remains of this entry
Warning--missing publisher in young_1958
(There was 1 error message)

(Here, mybib.bib is the name of the scratch bib file I created to test your code.)

A general suggestion: If you think something may have gone wrong during the BibTeX run, it's a good idea to check in the .blg (short for "BibTeX log", I suppose) file. Put differently: Ignore BibTeX error messages at your own peril.

Omit this "comment", and everything behaves as expected.

enter image description here

    author    = "Michael Young",
    title     = "The Rise of the Meritocracy",
    year      = "1958", 
    publisher = "Thames and Hudson",
    address   = "London"


  • Hello Mico, thanks for the answer. However, it seems that ecta is indeed supposed to show the publisher & address, such as in bibtex.com/s/bibliography-style-economic-ecta.
