Cross-reference book name

Postby Kotoschow » Fri Apr 12, 2013 2:27 pm

Hi all,

I'm writing a term paper in linguistics, and I want to refer to a chapter inside a book. So I naturally used a cross-reference from an @inbook entry into a @book entry (see below). When I referred to Steed86, the output I got was:

M. Steedman. Combinators and grammars, pages 417412. Foris, Dordrecht,

That is, the cross-reference worked, but the title of the book in which Steedman (1986) appears is omitted.
If it makes a difference, I'm using the abbrvnat style with natbib.
Any ideas?

BibTex Code:
  1. @inbook{Steed86,
  2. author = "Steedman, Mark",
  3. title= "Combinators and grammars",
  4. crossref = "Oeh_etal86",
  5. pages = "417-412",
  6. }
  8. @book{Oeh_etal86,
  9. author = "Oeherle, R., Bach, E. and Wheeler, D.",
  10. booktitle= "Categorieal Grammars and Natural Language Structures",
  11. publisher = "Foris, Dordrecht",
  12. year = "1986"
  13. }

The bibliography style you have chosen does not include the title of the book in inbook entries. You might try another bibliography style, or declaring your entries as @incollection instead of @inbook.

Yeah, I tried using @incollection, but it's kind of ugly.
Is that it? I guess I'll just try another style. Thanks!
