Bibliography Style Example

In the following section you see how different bibtex styles look in the resulting PDF. The style is defined in the \bibliographystyle{style} command where style is to be replaced with one of the following styles (e.g. alpha, etc.). The following bibliography inputs were used to generate the result:

@article{article, author = {Peter Adams}, title = {The title of the work}, journal = {The name of the journal}, year = 1993, number = 2, pages = {201-213}, month = 7, note = {An optional note}, volume = 4 } @book{book, author = {Peter Babington}, title = {The title of the work}, publisher = {The name of the publisher}, year = 1993, volume = 4, series = 10, address = {The address}, edition = 3, month = 7, note = {An optional note}, isbn = {3257227892} } @booklet{booklet, title = {The title of the work}, author = {Peter Caxton}, howpublished = {How it was published}, address = {The address of the publisher}, month = 7, year = 1993, note = {An optional note} } @conference{conference, author = {Peter Draper}, title = {The title of the work}, booktitle = {The title of the book}, year = 1993, editor = {The editor}, volume = 4, series = 5, pages = 213, address = {The address of the publisher}, month = 7, organization = {The organization}, publisher = {The publisher}, note = {An optional note} } @inbook{inbook, author = {Peter Eston}, title = {The title of the work}, chapter = 8, pages = {201-213}, publisher = {The name of the publisher}, year = 1993, volume = 4, series = 5, address = {The address of the publisher}, edition = 3, month = 7, note = {An optional note} } @incollection{incollection, author = {Peter Farindon}, title = {The title of the work}, booktitle = {The title of the book}, publisher = {The name of the publisher}, year = 1993, editor = {The editor}, volume = 4, series = 5, chapter = 8, pages = {201-213}, address = {The address of the publisher}, edition = 3, month = 7, note = {An optional note} }
@manual{manual, title = {The title of the work}, author = {Peter Gainsford}, organization = {The organization}, address = {The address of the publisher}, edition = 3, month = 7, year = 1993, note = {An optional note} } @mastersthesis{mastersthesis, author = {Peter Harwood}, title = {The title of the work}, school = {The school of the thesis}, year = 1993, address = {The address of the publisher}, month = 7, note = {An optional note} } @misc{misc, author = {Peter Isley}, title = {The title of the work}, howpublished = {How it was published}, month = 7, year = 1993, note = {An optional note} } @phdthesis{phdthesis, author = {Peter Joslin}, title = {The title of the work}, school = {The school of the thesis}, year = 1993, address = {The address of the publisher}, month = 7, note = {An optional note} } @proceedings{proceedings, title = {The title of the work}, year = 1993, editor = {Peter Kidwelly}, volume = 4, series = 5, address = {The address of the publisher}, month = 7, organization = {The organization}, publisher = {The name of the publisher}, note = {An optional note} } @techreport{techreport, author = {Peter Lambert}, title = {The title of the work}, institution = {The institution that published}, year = 1993, number = 2, address = {The address of the publisher}, month = 7, note = {An optional note} } @unpublished{unpublished, author = {Peter Marcheford}, title = {The title of the work}, note = {An optional note}, month = 7, year = 1993 }

As a starting point, I look on my own computer in the files that came with e.g. TexLive: and other stuff in that starts with . I take the style that is closed to what I want and copy the file in the local directory and rename the file. In this case, I renamed it to . I further make an almost empty file like this one

and name it . First, is taken and then I change something. In this case, I wanted the journal volume to be bold. So I changed

to

This way, I try to slowly come to the style I like.

My tex file:

My bib file:

I keep looking in the other files in the mentioned directory, if I am still missing something I want to change. The files that came with or rather TexLive were always good enough for me to find what I was looking for.
