Biblatex style guide: Information about biblatex styles.

Biblatex Default Styles

Biblatex offers a variety of default styles and can replace practically every existing BibTeX-related LaTeX-package. This style guide gives a quick overview over the default styles in biblatex and may ease your decision. Note that there are five general citation styles with several sub-styles that differ only in detail and that would need a longer and more complex example document to show the differences. Therefore, they will be only described shortly.

To select a style put it into the LaTeX preamble and the biblatex options:

\usepackage[...,style=YourDesiredStyle]{biblatex}

(for the other options indicated in the "..." read this page)

Note that biblatex gives you the option of selecting different styles for the citations and for the bibliography. You can load them like this:

\usepackage[...,bibstyle=YourDesiredBibliographyStyle,citestyle=YourDesiredCitationStyle]{biblatex}

Note that the following references are all in German. The text is English. Hope you do not mind. The first item is a book, the second an article (from a journal) and the third a chapter in a collection.

Note: The following LyX example files use a non-available document class (bblmemoir). To use them, switch the document class to Book (memoir) (or simply article - missing the chapter environment) and use the biblatex.module as explained on this page.
Also make sure that the BibTeX database is either in your TEXMF tree or that the paths of the \addbibresource or \bibliography preamble command are absolute and typo free.
The language encoding in the example files is set to Unicode (ucs-extended)(utf8x), not utf8, so it may give error �incompatible package 'ucs' � upon typesetting. Set language to utf8.
The bibliography processor is set to �Default� and may not generate a bibliography, instead only print the bibtexkey at the intext link. Setting bibliography processor to biber has been found to solve this.

Citation style: numeric

Writing academic papers sometimes can be quite boring. Thanks to Umberto Eco, there is at least one good book on writing a thesis [1]. Organizing your references with your computer can make life a lot more simple, Markus Krajewski has written about this [2]. And if you decide on writing a paper, then please do not make it too boring, as Michael Stitzel suggests [3]! Now, to read any of these references, you will need to learn German first. . .

numeric-comp

This is a compact variant of numeric and prints instead of �[3, 1, 5, 7, 2, 8]� something like �[1-3, 5, 7, 8]� if there are several references directly following each other.

numeric-verb

This is a verbose variant of numeric and prints instead of �[3, 1, 7]� somethinkg like �[3]; [1]; [7]� if there are several references directly following each other.

Citation style: alphabetic

Writing academic papers sometimes can be quite boring. Thanks to Umberto Eco, there is at least one good book on writing a thesis [Eco03]. Organizing your references with your computer can make life a lot more simple, Markus Krajewski has written about this [Kra01]. And if you decide on writing a paper, then please do not make it too boring, as Michael Stitzel suggests [Sti99]! Now, to read any of these references, you will need to learn German first. . .

This is a verbose variant of alphabetic and prints instead of �[Eco03; Kra01; Sti99]� somethinkg like �[Eco03]; [Kra01]; [Sti99]� if there are several references directly following each other.

Citation style: authoryear

Writing academic papers sometimes can be quite boring. Thanks to Umberto Eco, there is at least one good book on writing a thesis (Eco 2003). Organizing your references with your computer can make life a lot more simple, Markus Krajewski has written about this (Krajewski 2001). And if you decide on writing a paper, then please do not make it too boring, as Michael Stitel suggests (Stitzel 1999)! Now, to read any of these references, you will need to learn German first. . .

authoryear-comp

This is a compact variant of authoryear and prints instead of �Eco 2003b; Eco 1992; Krajewski 2001; Eco 2003a� something like �Eco 1992, 2003a,b; Krajewski 2001�.

Citation style: authortitle

This style is suited for citing in footnotes. To do so in LyX, put the each citation into a footnote. For compatibility reasons with the wiki, I did not put it in footnotes in the text (but in the example-files, I did). This style can make use of the shorttitle-field (which is new in biblatex).

authortitle-comp

This is a compact variant of authortitle and prints instead of �Eco, First title; Eco, Second title� something like �Eco, First title, Second title�.

authortitle-ibid

This is an ibidem variant of authortitle and replaces immediately repeated citations by �ibidem� unless the citation is the first on on a page or double page spread.

authortitle-icomp

This is a compact and ibidem variant of authortitle and includes features of both variants.

authortitle-terse

This is a terse variant of authortitle and prints the title of an author only if the bibliography contains more than one work by that author.

verbose-ibid

This is an ibidem variant of verbose and replaces immediately repeated citations by �ibidem� unless the citation is the first on on a page or double page spread.

verbose-note

This is a note variant of the verbose style and prints a full citation the first time an author is cited and prints a short citation afterwards and points to the footnote with the full citation.

verbose-inote

This is an ibidem and note variant of the verbose style and includes features of both variants.

verbose-trad1

This is a trad1 variant of verbose and uses a traditional citation scheme. It prints a full citation the first time and a short citation afterwards and uses even more (scholarly) abbreviations �ibidem�, �idem�, �op. cit.� and �loc. cit.�. Apart from that, it can make use of the shorthand field (new in biblatex?); shorthands are introduced at the first cite (e.g. Kant: Kritik der reinen Vernunft, KrV) and used afterwards (e.g. Kant: KrV).

verbose-trad2

This is a trad2 variant of verbose and is similar to verbose-trad1. It uses less scholarly abbreviations and behaves more like verbose-ibid and verbose-inote.

LaTeX style file and templates

Authors who use LaTeX may prepare their papers for submission with a set of customised macros. The macros allow an author to structure a manuscript in the style of the journal, and to present mathematical equations in a portable form. A LyX template is also available for users of this LaTeX-compatible graphical document editor.

Prerequisites

  1. LaTeX2e, version 1997/12/01 or later.
  2. The iucr macro package.
  3. Optionally, BiBTeX for citation handling.
See availability below for sources.

General notes on the use of the iucr package

A paper prepared in LaTeX format should declare a document of class iucr; that is, the first non-comment line of the file should be of the form

\documentclass{iucr}

Additional options will normally be specified with this command. The most common option is , to produce a single-column double-spaced version of the paper suitable for review purposes. Use this option for the hard-copy version of the paper submitted to the Co-editor:

\documentclass[preprint]{iucr}

Since the journals are not typeset directly from LaTeX (but from another language, SGML, into which the LaTeX file is translated), it is usually appropriate to prepare the manuscript solely in this 'preprint' mode.

For papers containing long mathematical equations, it is helpful if the author processes the paper without the mode during initial preparation, so that the equations may be adjusted to fit properly into the narrow columns of the journal.

Special instructions for Acta Crystallographica Section A

Manuscripts should be prepared for submission to a Coeditor with the document class invocation: \documentclass[preprint]{iucr} \journalcode{A} When accepted for publication, the final version to be submitted to the editorial office should be prepared with the invocation \documentclass{iucr} \journalcode{A} for full research papers, or \documentclass[short]{iucr} \journalcode{A} for Short Communications, to ensure that mathematical equations will fit into the narrow columns used in the journal.

Availability

LaTeX and BiBTeX

LaTeX and BiBTeX may be obtained free of charge from the Comprehensive TeX Archive or from a variety of public ftp archives. Specific implementations for many computer systems are also available from commercial vendors. A convenient source of the programs and supporting files is the TeXLive CD-ROM distribution.

The iucr package

The complete package is available by anonymous ftp from the server ftp.iucr.org, in the templates/latex directory.

  • The macros are contained in the file iucr.cls;
  • commands for formatting a bibliography with the BiBTeX program are in the file iucr.bst;
  • documentation is in the file documentation.ltx, which acts also as a test file for the correct functioning of the macros, and which should be processed by LaTeX and BibTeX along with the files
  • The file template.ltx may be used as a template for constructing submissions to IUCr journals.

The documentation is available in PDF format online.


LyX template

LyX is a graphical document editor useful for the preparation of LaTeX files by non-LaTeX users. To quote from the LyX web site

LyX is an advanced open source document processor that encourages an approach to writing based on the structure of your documents, not their appearance. LyX lets you concentrate on writing, leaving details of visual layout to the software.

LyX runs on many Unix platforms, OS/2, and under Windows/Cygwin (this port requires an X server). It can also run natively on Mac OS X, thanks to the Qt/Mac library.

LyX produces high quality, professional output -- using LaTeX, an industrial strength typesetting engine, in the background; LyX is far more than a front-end to LaTeX, however. No knowledge of LaTeX is necessary to use LyX, although it will give a user more power.

LyX is stable and fully featured. It has been used for documents as large as a thesis, or as small as a business letter. Despite its simple GUI interface (available in many languages), it supports tables, figures, and hyperlinked cross-references, and has a best-of-breed math editor.

A basic template file suitable for use with the iucr.cls macros is available by courtesy of Ethan Merritt, of the University of Washington.
