Specific style of simple bibliography without numbering

Postby latexbro » Thu Mar 14, 2019 12:23 pm

Hi everyone!

I am a little bit overwhelmed with all the options for the bibliography. But for a scientific paper in geology I need to fulfill a very specific style of referencing which I did not find after intensive search online ( ... owbst.html, overleaf, etc.) and this forum.

So, what I am trying to do is to cite in the text like this:

Tectonic processes at active continental margins cause the mineralization of
important metal ore reserves (Sillitoe, 1972). In the following [...]

Whereas the bibliography should look like this with the second line indented:

Sillitoe RH (1972) A plate tectonic model for the origin of porphyry copper
deposits Economic Geology 67: 184-197.

For my last project, I used \begin{description} / \end{description} and \item.


Sillitoe RH (1997)
\textit{Characteristics and controls of the largest porphyry copper‐gold and epithermal gold deposits in the circum‐Pacific region} Australian Journal of Earth Sciences 44: 373-388.

Universidad pedagógica y tecnológica de Colombia (2012)
\textit{Información general de la operaciones de Cerrejón} Congreso internacional de minería y muestra minera 2012, Paipa, Colombia. Retrieved from: ... rrejon.pdf on 25/02/2019.

Zeil W (1986)
\textit{Südamerika} Springer Spektrum. Berlin, 1986. ISBN-10: 3432958617.


In the paper itself, I just wrote the citation as normal text. This worked fine for a short paper, but my next one will have a lot more references, so I would like to use bibtex. But I am not sure how I can achieve the same result.

I hope, anyone could help me out with that :) !

Thank you

You are looking for a simple author-year style.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
