Citing Kindle books in BibTeX

Postby Hakarl » Wed May 23, 2018 12:53 am


Now that ebooks are all the rage how does one cite those? I would assume under the "Book" label but what about the rest of the fields?


P. S. I have seen folks quote Kindle version of books and give specific locations in the book by citing Loc 106 etc.

I would say that a book is a book and can be cited like a book, no matter if it's printed on paper or plastic or PDF or Kindle. There's a title, a publisher, an author, a year etc. If you need to point a location, and cannot use page numbers, use sectioning (chapter) numbers or their titles or headings.
