I'm currently writing my bachelors thesis. I used the numeric style citations and they worked fine until my professor decided he wanted footnotes with author, title and pages as well as citation numbers in superscript.

So basically the numeric-comp citation and bibliography style with supercite, BUT also footnotes.

It should look something like this (This is not generated with latex, just an example):

enter image description here

If possible, I would like to add the page numbers as plain text manually for each citation, so the p. and pp. aren't automated. For different sources (like web pages) I would also like author and title with a manual note like above with page numbers. Ideally each source only shows up once per page but at this point I would be happy if the citations worked at all.

My Setup is:

\documentclass[twoside,10pt, ngerman, numbers=noenddot, headsepline]{scrreprt} 
\usepackage[backend=biber, style=numeric-comp, sorting=none]{biblatex}
\usepackage[colorlinks=true, bookmarks, bookmarksnumbered, bookmarksopen, bookmarksopenlevel=1, linkcolor=black, citecolor=black, urlcolor=blue, filecolor=blue,  pdfpagelayout=OneColumn, pdfnewwindow=true, pdfstartview=XYZ, plainpages=false, pdfpagelabels},




I spent a few hours searching for the right solutions, trying to implement other solutions and customise my citation styles but I'm not a good programmer and english isn't my first language so I just can't get there. I really hope someone is able to help me.

I can post a code example, but I'm not sure if it would help, since I'm using the standard numeric-comp citation style without any modifications.

Thank you all so much!

  • Things like tex.stackexchange.com/q/35673/35864 exist, but they are pretty difficult to pull off properly. Is there any chance you can get your professor to relent and accept a more sane citation style? (Maybe check a few journals in your area of research and show your professor that they use a different style.)

  • Suppose (as in your example) you cite source 3 several times on one page, but that (additionally) each time the page range is different. How would that be reflected accurately in the footnote?

    how is the ordering in the footnotes? Why is it "1,3" in the first line? May 11, 2023 at 9:08

    sorry but this is mad. How on earth should a reader find a reference if the footnotes go 10 Author A , 91 Author B , 22 Author C? on a page? (And I hope that you don't have real footnotes, as this would give a complete mess, superscript doesn't go well with footnotes anyway). May 11, 2023 at 10:24
