Some citation works while some remained undefined

Postby asetiyawan » Wed Sep 07, 2022 10:03 am

Hello,
I am trying to create a bibtex for my new document by using the bibtex that I used for my previous project as I reuse some of the references. Some thing weird with the new document is that the previously worked references are now undefined, and a lot of websites reference (I use @misc) are not working while some of them are okay. The tag option also appears when i type ~\cite{}. The example are on the figures I attached.
I am using the AIAA bibliographystyle and confused as half of my citation right now are in question marks.

Sounds like BibTeX chokes on something within an entry and skips the rest of the .bib file. Have a look at the .blg file (BibTeX's log file) or post it here.

Hello, thanks for the reply. As I am using overleaf as the interface. I supposed the .blg file is the same with the log that is comes from the overleaf. The only log error that is about the citation and reference shown the exactly same message like the message below. I have no idea what is wrong as I just copy paste the bib template and change title,author,year etc.

No. Suppose your main .tex file is called `foo.tex', then `foo.log' would be the log file generated by running LaTeX on `foo.tex'. After running `bibtex foo[.aux]', BibTeX's log file `foo.blg' is created. That's the file I referred to.

OTOH, I'm no overleaf user, so I can't tell you how to get at this `foo.blg' file from there.
BTW:
