Name Order in Biblography Entry

Postby amiruw » Wed Aug 14, 2013 4:24 pm

Hello All,

With the following document class:



and the following bib file and style:



and using the natbib package, I had some problems with my references; for example, some of them were shown as “?” in the body of the text.

The problem got fixed by changing the style to the following:



Everything is perfect except for the order of the authors’ names. Thus, I have the following order:

First Name, Family Name, Title Vol (Number), (Year) Pages.

but I need to have Family names coming first so that I can have all the names alphabetically ordered. I am wondering if there are any changes that I can make to have this implemented based on the same document class (i.e., ) and bibliography style (i.e., ).

I also tried other bibliography styles but no perfect fix. For example, based on:



Everything is fine but the URLs are not shown in the reference list. For example, everything related to the following item is shown except for the URL:



Thanks in advance,

amiruw

Biblatex provides several standard citations styles, if no citation style is set LaTeX uses the one that matches the bibliography style. Below you can see an example:

\documentclass{article}\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}\usepackage[english]{babel}   \usepackage[ backend=biber, style=alphabetic, citestyle=authoryear ]{biblatex}   \addbibresource{sample.bib}%Imports bibliography file   \begin{document}\section{First section}   This document is an example, two items are cited: \textit{The \LaTeX\ Companion} book is \cite{latexcompanion}, and Einstein's journal paper is \cite{einstein}.   \medskip   \printbibliography\end{document}

The parameter passed to the command that imports biblatex is the one that sets the citation style, in this case authoryear. The standard citation styles are:

  • Implements a numeric citation scheme intended for in-text citations. Should be employed in conjunction with the numeric bibliography style.
  • Compact variant of the mode. Citations like [1, 2, 3] are replaced by [1-3].
  • Verbose variant of the style. Instead of [2, 5, 7] will print [2];[5];[7].
  • Alphabetic citation scheme similar to the standard in style bibtex. To be used in conjunction with the alphabetic bibliography style.
  • Verbose version of the style. Instead of [Doe98, Doe95, Farn2004] will print [Doe98];[Doe95];[Farn2004].
  • Implements the author-year citation scheme. To be used in conjunction with the author-year bibliography style.
  • Compact variant of the style. Prints the author only once if subsequent references passed to a single citation command share the same author. Prints Doe 1992, 1995 instead of Doe 1992, Doe 1995.
  • A variant of the intended for footnote citations. Replaces repeated citations by the abbreviation ibidem.
  • A style combining the features of and
  • Implements the author-title scheme. Intended for citations given in footnotes.
  • Compact variant of . Instead of Doe, First title; Doe, Second title this will print Doe, First title, Second title.
  • A variant of the intended for footnote citations. Replaces repeated citations by the abbreviation ibidem.
  • A style combining and .
  • Variant of that only prints the title if the bibliography contains more than one work of the respective author/editor.
  • Style combining and .
  • Style combining and .
  • Citation style that prints a full citation when the entry is cited for the first time and a short version afterwards.
  • Citation style that goes with the bibliography style by the same name. Loads the style.
