Lyx Bibliography Et Alii

On By In 1
Your LaTeX file needs to include
  • a reference to a label in your BibTeX file whenever you want to cite an item in the file
  • a reference to the bibliography style file you want to use, which determines how the references you cite are formatted in the bibliography of your document (and possibly a LaTeX style file associated with the bibliography style)
  • a LaTeX command to generate the bibliography at the point in your document where you want it to appear.

Example using

Here is an example using the bibliography style , which produces citations in "author (year)" format. This file is available on this page (which has instructions on where to put the file once you get it). The lines related to BibTeX are highlighed. It requires the LaTeX style file to produce citations in the right style in the text (matching the format of the references produced by ). You probably have this file already (assuming you have some implementation of TeX on your computer). If you don't, you can get it on this CTAN page. Hover over orangetext to see explanations.

When you run the LaTeX file through LaTeX and BibTeX (instructions below), you'll get output for the body of the document that looks roughly like this:

This document illustrates the use of BibTeX. You may want to refer to Arrow et al. (1961) or Aliprantis and Border (1994) or Maskin (1985). Or you may want to cite a specific page in a reference, like this: see Maskin (1985, p. 199). Or perhaps you want to cite more than one paper by Maskin: Maskin (1985, 1999). Or you want to make a parenthetical reference to one or more articles, in which case the \citealt command omits the parentheses around the year (Arrow et al. 1961).
A few more options for the command are available. Here they are:
Jones et al. (1990)
Jones, Baker, and Smith (1990)
(Jones et al. 1990)
(Jones, Baker, and Smith 1990)
(Jones et al., 1990, p. 99)
(e.g. Jones et al., 1990)
(e.g. Jones et al., 1990, p. 99)
Jones et al.
Jones, Baker, and Smith
1990
*Jones et al.'s (1990)

*Assumes \citeapos is defined in your style or document like this:

(Thanks to Christopher M. Duncombe Rae for pointing out this simple way of generating a possessive citation.)

The list of references will look like this:

Aliprantis, Charalambos D. and Kim C. Border (1994), Infinite Dimensional Analysis. Springer, Berlin.

Arrow, Kenneth J., Leonid Hurwicz, and Hirofumi Uzawa (1961), "Constraint qualifications in maximization problems." Naval Research Logistics Quarterly, 8, 175–191.

Maskin, Eric S. (1985), "The theory of implementation in Nash equilibrium: a survey." In Social Goals and Social Organization (Leonid Hurwicz, David Schmeidler, and Hugo Sonnenschein, eds.), 173–204, Cambridge University Press.

Maskin, Eric S. (1999), "Nash equilibrium and welfare optimality." Review of Economic Studies, 66, 23–38.

Example using

Here is an example using the bibliography style , which in included in many LaTeX systems.

When you run the LaTeX file through LaTeX and BibTeX (instructions below), you'll get output for the body of the document that differs from the output when you use only in that the names of all three authors of Arrow, Hurwicz, and Uzawa (1961) are listed in the first citation to that work, although not in the second, parenthetical, citation.

The list of references differs more significantly from the list produced by : only authors' initials, not their full first names, are included, and "&" rather than "and" is used as a separator; numbers in page ranges are separated by hyphens, rather than the conventional en-dashes. Precisely, the list of references produced by looks like this:

Aliprantis, C. D. & K. C. Border (1994), Infinite Dimensional Analysis. Berlin: Springer.

Arrow, K. J., Hurwicz, L., & Uzawa, H. (1961), Constraint qualifications in maximization problems. Naval Research Logistics Quarterly, 8, 175-191.

Maskin, E. S. (1985), The theory of implementation in Nash equilibrium: a survey. In L. Hurwicz, D. Schmeidler, & H. Sonnenschein (Eds.), Social Goals and Social Organization (p. 173-204). Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.

Maskin, Eric S. (1999), Nash equilibrium and welfare optimality. Review of Economic Studies, 66, 23-38.

A family of styles that produce author-year citations is available on this page.

Creating your own bibliography style

A BibTeX style file is plain text, which in principle you can edit. However, the language used is arcane, and changes that are more than trivial are tricky. A better way to proceed is to create a new style file from scratch, using the custom-bib package (that's how I created ). You run TeX on a file, which asks you a long list of questions about the features of the style you would like. You'll probably not be completely clear about your preferred answers to all the questions on your first attempt, but two or three runs should produce a format to your liking.

Harvard BibTeX Style — 'et al' not italic in References

Postby dexterlemmer » Fri Jul 29, 2011 2:00 pm

My references and bibliography should be in the Harvard style. However, in references with many authors, the "et al" part should be in italics (but it isn't).

I'm using LyX v 2.0.0 and MikTeX v 2.9.
I've downloaded the style files (*.bst, for example agsm.bst) from all over and other requirements (such as harvard.sty) was downloaded automatically when LyX/LaTeX/PDFLaTeX/whatever detected they were missing.

I've tried most possible combinations of the following settings:
> Setting 1) Document class: Either article or article(AMS)
> Setting 2) I've also changed the citation style to be one of the following:
2.1) Natbib (Author-year)
2.2) Harvard
> Setting 3) Setting the style as one of the following: agsm, apsr, dcu, kluwer.

To choose setting 2.1:
2.1.1) Document > Settings: Bibliography: Citation Style: Choose Natbib
2.1.2) In the same dialog: Natbib style = Author-year
2.1.3) Document > Settings: LaTeX Preamble: <Empty>

To choose setting 2.2:
2.2.1) Document > Settings: Bibliography: Citation Style: Choose Default
2.2.2) Document > Settings: LaTeX Preamble:


Here is an example of my *.lyx file (with Setting 1= article(AMS), Setting 2=2.1 (Harvard) and Setting3= agsm):


Here's part of my bibtex file:
  1. % This file was created with JabRef 2.6.
  2. @ARTICLE{Delalandre.etal2010,
  3. author = {Mathieu Delalandre and Ernest Valveny and Tony Pridmore and Dimosthenis
  4. title = {Generation of synthetic documents for performance evaluation of symbol
  5. recognition \& spotting systems},
  6. journal = {International Journal on Document Analysis and Recognition},
  7. timestamp = {2011.05.25},
  8. url = {http://portal.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=1858548}
