12.5. The short-title system

12.5.1. jurabib—Customizable short-title references

Classifying the jurabib package developed by Jens Berger as a package implementing the short-title system is not really doing it justice (no pun intended), as in fact it actually supports other citation systems as well.

Besides short-title citations it offers support for author-date citations (by providing the natbib command interface), various options to handle specific requirements from the humanities, and special support for citing juridical works such as commentaries (hence the name jurabib).

The package uses an extended option concept where options are specified with a “key=value” syntax. The package supports more than 30 options, each of which may be set to a number of values, covering various aspects of presenting the citation layout in the text and the references in the bibliography. In this book we can show only a small selection of these possibilities. For further information refer to the package documentation, which is available in English and German.
