Problem in bibliography

Postby Ahmadnia2011 » Mon Nov 06, 2017 6:46 pm

Hi guys,

I have some problems with bibliography style.
1- Any idea to generate "\shortcite"?
2- When I reference more than three authors, usually "xxx et al" just should appear in the text, but for me, it aooears the same in the list of bibliography! Would you please guide me to solve this issue?

Thanks,
Ben

What is the bibliography style you are using?

Use the natbib package, the named package, apacite or biblatex.

That depends on the bibliography style. Please tell us details of your code, show the code, the template (and what changes you made), and your document preamble. There are too many possibilities.

Thank you Stefan for the Reply.
I'm using the default bibliography style pf Master/Doctoral thesis package.
"\usepackage[backend=bibtex,style=authoryear,maxnames=3,natbib=true]{biblatex}"
Any idea for appearing them names of all the authors in the bibliography?

maxcitenames=3

Maybe I should explain more;
When I cite a reference with more than three authors, I can see (bla et al. 2222) in body the text and it's ok, while as far as I know, in the main bibliography page, it should not appear the same! I mean in the bibliography page the names of all authors should appear instead of (bla et al. 2222, with rest of information).
It should be (bla, bla, bla, bla 2222, ...) in bibliography page, but in mine is (bla et al 2222 ...).

There is maxnames, which controls the maximum amount of names in both cites and the bibliography,
maxcitenames, which just controls the amount of names in a cite (main body) and
maxbibnames, which just controls the amount of names in a the bibliography.

If you are interested, there is also a Quick guide to the template
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
