Problems with customizing the bibliography

Postby Chris198 » Fri Feb 06, 2015 9:22 pm

Hi,

I just startet working with Latex and I have huge problems with customizing the bibliographic style.

What I want is this:
• Books: Surname, Forename (Original date of pub.): Title. Address: Publisher (Date of
the republication).

• Incollection: Surname, Forename (Original date of pub.): Title. In: Surname, Forename (Hrsg.): Booktitle. Address: Publisher (Date of the republication), page-page.

If the paper is part of a collection of papers by the same author I want that it appears as follows:
• Surname, Forename (Original date of pub.): Title. In: Ders.: Booktitle. Address: Publisher (Date of the republication), page-page.

And finally: If there is more than one author, then I want an ‚&‘ between their names (this should be the case by all types of references and also when there is more than one editor).

Here’s what I have so far:
  1. \documentclass[a4, 12pt]{scrartcl}
  2. \usepackage{geometry}
  3. \geometry{a4paper, top=2.5cm, left=2.5cm, right=2.5cm, bottom=3 cm}
  4. \usepackage[protrusion=true,expansion=true]{microtype}
  5. \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
  6. \usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
  7. \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
  8. \usepackage[german=quotes]{csquotes}
  9. \usepackage[
  10. style=authoryear-icomp,
  11. pagetracker=true,
  12. maxcitenames=3,
  13. date=year,
  14. origdate=year,
  15. backend=bibtex8,
  16. safeinputenc,
  17. url=false,
  18. isbn=false,
  19. hyperref=false,
  20. sorting=nyt
  21. ]{biblatex}
  22.  
  23. \setlength{\bibitemsep}{0.5em}
  24. \setlength{\bibhang}{3.6em}
  25. \renewcommand{\postnotedelim}{\addcolon\addspace}
  26. \renewcommand*\bibnamedash{\rule[0.48ex]{3em}{0.14ex}\space}
  27. \DeclareFieldFormat{postnote}{#1}
  28. \DeclareFieldFormat[article]{title}{#1\isdot}
  29. \DeclareFieldFormat[inbook]{title}{#1\isdot}
  30. \DeclareFieldFormat[incollection]{title}{#1\isdot}
  31. \DeclareFieldFormat{journaltitle}{#1}
  32. \DeclareFieldFormat{pages}{#1}
  33. \DeclareFieldFormat[inbook,thesis,article,in collection,booklet,conference,in proceedings,proceedings,unpublished]{title}{\mkbibemph{#1}}
  34. \renewbibmacro*{date}{%
  35. %\printdate
  36. \iffieldundef{origyear}{%
  37. }{%
  38. \printtext[parens]{\printorigdate}%
  39. }%
  40. }
  41. \DefineBibliographyStrings{german}{%
  42. andothers = {{et\,al\adddot}},
  43. editor = {(Hrsg.)},
  44. editors = {(Hrsg.)}}
  45. \renewcommand{\labelnamepunct}{\addcolon\addspace}
  46. \bibliography{sample}
  47.  
  48. \begin{document}
  49.  
  50. blabla\parencite[379]{McDowell2008}
  51.  
  52. \nocite{*}
  53. \printbibliography
  54. \end{document}


And here my bib-file:
  1. @incollection{McDowell2008,
  2. Address = {Oxford},
  3. Author = {John McDowell},
  4. Booktitle = {Disjunctivism: Perception, Action, Knowledgey},
  5. Editor = {Macpherson, F. \& Haddock, A.},
  6. Keywords = {McDowell},
  7. Pages = {376--389},
  8. Publisher = {Oxford University Press},
  9. Title = {The Disjunctive Conception of Experience as Material for a Transcendental Argument},
  10. Year = {2008}}
  11.  
  12. @article{McDowell1982,
  13. Author = {John McDowell},
  14. Journal = {Proceedings of the British Academy},
  15. Keywords = {McDowell},
  16. Pages = {455--479},
  17. Title = {Criteria, Defeasibility, and Knowledge},
  18. Volume = {68},
  19. Year = {1982}}
  20.  
  21. @book{McDowell1996,
  22. Address = {Harvard},
  23. Author = {John McDowell},
  24. Keywords = {McDowell},
  25. Origdate = {1994},
  26. Publisher = {Harvard University Press},
  27. Title = {Mind and World},
  28. Year = {1996}}


Thank you in advance.

Hi Chris,

welcome to the forum!

Did you manage to solve some of the problems? Sorry to see there wasn't a response yet. Perhaps after an update post? Feel free to bump it up with some information.

I noticed you posted the question on TeXwelt.de, so I add this link for completeness. No problems with cross-posts, if there's a backlink.
