Include "Working Paper"

Postby roblocks » 2016-04-07 11:00

Systeminformationen: [ Citavi Version 5.0-5.1, Windows 10, Englisch, Firefox 36 oder neuer, MS Office 2013/365 64Bit, Acrobat DC ]

Dear Citavi Team,
I want to include some working papers in my bibliography. Googling suggests using "Gray Literature". I export it using bibtex and biblatex. In latex I use "style=authoryear", but it only prints name year title.
I would want it to include "Working Paper something"... not sure how to do that though.

I added a new field: "Working paper", but Latex wont print it.

Do you have any suggestions?

Hi, roblocks,

unfortunately, it's not as easy as this.

What Citavi does is only generating the bib file that contains all information stored in the Citavi project in their respective BibTeX/biblatex fields. The document types provided by Citavi and by biblatex (s. manual, §2.1) are somewhat different.

By default Citavi exports Report or Gray Literature as @misc. You can change this, however, by clicking Edit BibTeX export defintion when exporting to BibLaTeX.

What you need to do is basically changing your biblatex style definitions for authoryear for whichever biblatex document type (perhaps @report fits best) choose such that the relevant information "Working paper" is included somewhere either directly in the style definition or in a way that it is retrieved from one of Citavi's custom fields which you assign a biblatex field for that purpose.

Please accept that we can't provide support for customizing BibTeX or biblatex styles.

Best regards
