References do not appear

Postby Tkyokushin » Mon Oct 21, 2013 10:01 am

Hi to all,

I have problems with two references I will explain first then introduce them.

  1. I have a reference of a guy called "DeMello" and in both reference page and in the main text it shows me "Mello". I check my bib file and everything is written well.

  2. I have a reference that never appear and of course everything is written well.
These are the two database entries:
  1. @article{Terzaghi,
  2. Author = {K Terzaghi and R B Peck and G Mesri},
  3. Date-Added = {2013-09-12 23:17:10 +0000},
  4. Date-Modified = {2013-10-21 07:24:49 +0000},
  5. Title = {Soil Mechanics in Engineering Practice},
  6. Volume = {3rd edition, Wiley, New York},
  7. Year = {1996}
  8. }
  9.  
  10. @article{DeMello,
  11. Author = {V F B DeMello},
  12. Date-Modified = {2013-10-16 13:35:07 +0000},
  13. Journal = {6th Regional Conference for Africa on Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering, Durban, South Africa},
  14. Pages = {pp. 285-304},
  15. Title = {Some lessons from unsuspected, real and fictious problems in earth dam engineering in Brazil},
  16. Year = {1975}
  17. }


I am running TeXworks on Mac OS X.

Can you produce an example that reproduces this problem? We need to know things like document class, bibliography style, citation commands used, that sort of thing.

Hi

this is my document header

  1. \documentclass{LMTreport}
  2. \usepackage [frenchb]{babel}
  3. \usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc}
  4. \graphicspath{{figures/}}
  5. \usepackage{rotating}
  6. \usepackage{lscape}
  7. \usepackage{float}
  8. \usepackage{multirow}
  9. \bibliographystyle{apalike-fr}


I'm writing my PhD

and citation command is
  1. \cite{DeMello}
  2. \cite{Terzaghi}


i have around 100 difference references all work fine except these 2

Alsways asking for minimal working examples makes me really tired.

  1. \begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
  2. @article{Terzaghi,
  3. Author = {K Terzaghi and R B Peck and G Mesri},
  4. Date-Added = {2013-09-12 23:17:10 +0000},
  5. Date-Modified = {2013-10-21 07:24:49 +0000},
  6. Title = {Soil Mechanics in Engineering Practice},
  7. Volume = {3rd edition, Wiley, New York},
  8. Year = {1996}
  9. }
  10.  
  11. @article{DeMello,
  12. Author = {V F B DeMello},
  13. Date-Modified = {2013-10-16 13:35:07 +0000},
  14. Journal = {6th Regional Conference for Africa on Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering, Durban, South Africa},
  15. Pages = {pp. 285-304},
  16. Title = {Some lessons from unsuspected, real and fictious problems in earth dam engineering in Brazil},
  17. Year = {1975}
  18. }
  19. \end{filecontents}
  20. \documentclass{article}
  21. %\documentclass{LMTreport}% I don't have this class
  22. \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
  23. % A warning told me to use this encoding.
  24. % Definitely a good idea for languages
  25. % with diacritics
  26. \usepackage[frenchb]{babel}
  27. \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
  28. \bibliographystyle{apalike-fr}
  29. \begin{document}
  30. I am a minimal example
  31.  
  32. \cite{DeMello}
  33. \nocite{*}
  34. \bibliography{\jobname}
  35. \end{document}


This gives me the bibliography with both references. Click on Open in writelatex directly above the code to verify it.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

I concur....

I can't reproduce this either. You didn't provide the document class, so I can't be certain what's happening there. Try to get it working with NO additional packages if you can. The instructions for a Infominimal working example are common enough that there's a special "MWE" button on this site (which should tell you something).

I am sorry
I am a complete beginner in LaTeX and still learning day by day
The document class is my university style report, we are not obliged to use it but it was ready i just had to fill.

About my problem it Works fine now
Thank you very much to all.
