Logfile very large

Everytime I compile my file, I get a message from TeXstudio saying The logfile is very large (> 2 MB) are you sure you want to load it? This is mostly because I am updating the bibliography, while to a large extent the .bib file is not correctly formatted (it is simply an output from […]

Different bibliographies for each chapter with shared references

I tried to go through already posted solutions but I was not able to find one working for my case. I am compiling a ph.d. thesis with one main file, by including chapters. The format is the following \documentclass[12pt, twoside]{book} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[english]{babel} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage[pagestyles]{titlesec} \titleformat{\chapter}[display]{\normalfont\bfseries}{}{0pt}{\Huge} \newpagestyle{mystyle} {\sethead[\thepage][][\chaptertitle]{}{}{\thepage}} \pagestyle{mystyle} \usepackage[semicolon,round,sort&compress]{natbib} \usepackage[sectionbib]{chapterbib} \usepackage{hyperref} \usepackage{epstopdf} \usepackage{rotating} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage{multirow} […]

What is the best referencing tool for LaTeX?

I’m using TexShop on Mac and have a .bib file with references exported by Zotero. One disadvantage of this method is that CiteKeys where I can use in-text referencing \cite{citekeys} cannot be modified to my own custom keys. I tried using BibDesk but realised a problem where the letter cases of authors and documents are […]

How can I get the style alpha.bst sorted as plain.bst in Bibtex?

I like alphanumerical citations written as in alpha.bst style, with initials of authors and years, but I would like references to appear sorted as in plain.bst style. As an example, I prefer the order [BN07] M. Baker and S. Norine (2007)… [Blo07] S. Bloch (2007)… to [Blo07] S. Bloch (2007)… [BN07] M. Baker and S. […]

Best practice: define BibLateX/BibTeX entry with title in native language and in English

I am preparing a paper. Some of the documents are written in Portuguese. My supervised suggested me to include in the bibliography the title translated to English and the title in Portuguese as well, and mention at the end the native language of the document. Is there a good way to do this, using biblatex […]

When including the following entry in my ref.bib @article{chen2012, title={基于电无级变速器的内燃机最优控制策略及整车能量管理}, author={陈骁 and 黄声华 and 万山明 and 庞珽}, journal={电工技术学报}, volume={27}, number={2}, pages={133–138}, year={2012} } it shows up as I’m using \documentclass{article} \usepackage{cite} \usepackage{bibentry} \nobibliography* \begin{document} \bibentry{chen2012} is used for XXX study. \bibliographystyle{IEEEtran} \bibliography{ref} \end{document}

Elsarticle – number bibliography not working

I am trying to correctly format an article for Computers & Operations Research. They say I should use the “number” format to cite. I use elsarticle.cls and the documentation says that number should be the standard option loaded. This does not seem to be the case as \cite{smth} outputs Author[1] and I don’t want Author […]

creating a new bibtex entry type

I’ve been using for bibtex for a few years now, and I’ve finally reached the point where I am fed up with the fact that the “book” entry does not allow for both an editor and an author, and the fact that “translator” is not a valid data entry type (so far as I know). […]

Question mark instead of number for reference

I an new to Latex, and I am trying to use ‘bibtex‘ to create a reference, I was working in pdfLaTeX+MakeIndex+BibTex. Here is my sample code: \documentclass[12pt]{article} \usepackage{cite} \begin {document} $$ x_i$$ \section{Introduction} According to \cite{2006} \bibliographystyle{IEEEtran} \bibliography{my_bibtex} \end{document} Edit: Here is the .bib file that I am using. @article{2006, jstor_articletype = {research-article}, title = […]

Using BibTeX with LyX: errors in auto-generated .bbl

I’ve been puzzling with this for hours now and I can’t solve it. I’m using LyX for my article and I made a BibTeX file with JabRef. I inserted the BibTeX bibliography into LyX, but when I try to compile, errors appear: Multiple “Missing $ inserted.”, “Missing } inserted.” and “Extra }, or forgotten \endgroup.” […]
