I have two problems with bibliography using ConTeXt ver: 2013.01.10 01:04 MKIV.

  1. I would like to get \citet like behaviour Author name [1]. However, presently the MWE produces only the numbers.

  2. Secondly, a list of publications is not being produced at all either \placepublications or \completepublications.

MWE

\setupbibtex[database={bib}]
%\setuppublications[alternative=]

\starttext
  I am refering to \cite{me13}.
  \placepublications[criterium=text]
\stoptext

bib.bib

@article{me13,
        title = {This bibliography in context},
        author = {Convert, Recent},
        journal = {Tex SX},
        volume = {1},
        number = {1},
        pages = {1-11},
        year = {2013},
}

    The scheme Author [number] is not supported by default. But alternative=apa is quite close. It displays the author name(s) and the year. I get a list of publications with \placepublications[criterium=text] and with \completepublications[criterium=text]

  • @Marco Did you get the list of publications for this MWE? The workflow is: context main.tex. As I understand it, I do not have to run bibtex.

  • @Marco Issue resolved. However, could you point me a direction on how to go about writing a new bibliography style?

You need to change the refcommand to authornum, i.e.,

\setuppublications[alternative=num, refcommand=authornum]

A complete MWE:

\setupbibtex[database={bib}]
\setuppublications[alternative=num, refcommand=authornum]

\starttext
I am refering to \cite{me13}.

\placepublications[criterium=text]
\stoptext

gives

EDIT: There is a bug with authornum due to which it does not work when the citation contains more than three authors. Here is a bug fix.

\setupbibtex[database={bib}]
\setuppublications[alternative=num, refcommand=authornum]

\unprotected\def\dobibauthornumref#1%
 {\bibinsertrefsep
  \doifbibreferencefoundelse{#1}
    {\begingroup
     \cite[left=,right=,alternative=author][#1]%
     \bibalternative\c!inbetween
     \cite[num][#1]%
     \endgroup}
    {}}

\starttext
\startTEXpage[offset=3mm]
I am refering to \cite[me13]. I can also refer to \cite[me13a,me13b].

\placepublications[criterium=text]
\stopTEXpage
\stoptext

where the bib.bib file is

@article{me13,
        title = {This bibliography in context},
        author = {Convert, Recent and User, Latex and Guru, Old},
        journal = {Tex SX},
        volume = {1},
        number = {1},
        pages = {1-11},
        year = {2013},
}

@article{me13a,
        title = {This bibliography in context},
        author = {Convert, Recent and Guru, Old},
        journal = {Tex SX},
        volume = {1},
        number = {2},
        pages = {12-16},
        year = {2013},
}

@article{me13b,
        title = {This bibliography in context},
        author = {Convert, Recent},
        journal = {Tex SX},
        volume = {1},
        number = {3},
        pages = {17-32},
        year = {2013},
}

which gives

  • If you add two more authors to the example, then et al. should be added in the citation. But it only gives Convert, [1].

  • I thought that the solution would involve some use of \setupcite.
