Hi all,
I am using apacite as bibliographystyle, which does not print ISBN in the references. Any solutions? Thanks

ISBN not showing in Apacite

Postby MjK » Thu Feb 23, 2023 10:00 am

apacite.bst does not support an entry field isbn (but e.g. a doi). The supported entry fields can be found in apacite.bst. Just search for keyword ENTRY.

Note also, that apacite is not conform with current APA rules. So it is only one of several author-year styles. If you really need APA, you should use biblatex either with option cite=apa (APA7 compatibility) or cite=apa6 (old APA6 compatibility). But if you need only an author-year style use for example biblatex with style=authoryear or style=ext-authoryear or any suitable author-year (→ CTAN Catalogue Topic biblatex). Most style for biblatex supports isbn — but sometimes not for all kind of entry types (e.g. AFAIK the standard styles support it not for @article or @online, see the biblatex instructions for details).
My main topics are KOMA-Script and other questions related to my packages. If I reply to any other topic or if you've not yet added a minimal working example, please do not expect any further response. And please don't forget to tag examples as code.
