13.5. Formatting the bibliography with BibTeX styles

Now that we know how to produce BibTeX database entries and manipulate them using various management tools, it is time to discuss the main purpose of the BibTeX program. This is to generate a bibliography containing a certain set of entries (determined from the document contents) in a format conforming to a set of conventions.

We first discuss the use of existing styles and present example results produced by a number of standard and nonstandard styles. We then show how the custom-bib package makes it possible to produce customized styles for nearly every requirement with ease.

13.5.1. A collection of BibTeX style files

Various organizations and individuals have developed style files for BibTeX that correspond to the house style of particular journals or editing houses. Nelson Beebe has collected a large number of BibTeX styles. For each style he provides an example file, which allows you to see the effect of using the given style.1 Some of the BibTeX styles—for instance, authordate i, jmb, and named—must be used in conjunction with their accompanying LaTeX packages (as indicated in Table 13.4) to obtain the desired effect.
