### References cited with additional Information

How can we include misc information from the bibliography - e.g., citation count, year, journal details etc.
`@article{name07,   Author = {Lastname},   Date-Added = {2007-09-06 11:28:24 +0200},   Date-Modified = {2007-09-06 11:29:24 +0200},   Journal = {Journal of Sth},   Title = {Title},   Year = {2007},   Misc = {Some details}}`

However, can we reference the citation and include it in the main document?

e.g.:
`\cite{name07}[Misc] % i.e., go to the bib and include 'Misc' information here?`

Thanks
Ben

You can include any information you want as part of the citation in the "note" field.

I'm not 100% certain what you want to do for the second one. If your question is, "is there a way to output one field from a BibTeX-generated bibliography using a command," then the answer is "no" unless you write both a package that redefines the \cite command (like natbib) and a bibliography style to go with it. That will only work if the key is something that contains all the information you need; see how natbib is written for details.

If you're looking to create a non-standard BibTeX field (such as "misc") and then add it to the bibliography in some manner, that can be done---you would have to write your own bibliography style file to do so, but it can be done. I have found the "Tame the BeaST" document on CTAN to be useful in learning the BibTeX language.
