## Dec 3rd 2009 09:35 pmpublication list bibtex style (bst)

Print

I needed to create a publication list for my dissertation. I wanted it to include the abstracts and be sorted descendant by publication date.

There is already an abstract.bst file that outputs the bibliography items with abstract, but it sort them by author. So that messed up my file, because I wasn’t the first author in all these publications. There is also a plainyr-rev.bst that sort the bibitems by year. So I combined them both to have a descendant-by-year-abstract-included output. This is the Bibtex Style File for Publication Lists with Abstract (descYrWithAbst.bst).

I use BibDesk to mantain my bibtex database. I created a Smart group that contains all the entries where I am an author. I have the tex view in the bottom panel, and in the BibDesk’s Preferences, I modify the Tex template like this:
 \documentclass[a4paper,11pt]{article} \usepackage{url, gensymb} % include packages according to your needs \pagestyle{empty} \title{Publication List} \author{Juli\'an Villegas} \date{} \begin{document} \nocite{<<CiteKeys>>} \bibliography{<<File>>} \bibliographystyle{./descYrWithAbst}
 \end{document} 

This method is convenient because it can be used to generate an well-formed HTML file without all the curly braces and such those the BibDesk includes. I’m using SimpleTeX4ht to generate the HTML file. The ‘Publications‘ page of this website was generated that way.

Hope it helps!

Esteban Zimanyi (http://code.ulb.ac.be/) kindly provided an improved version of the bibliography style file, to him should go all the credits of the present version.
