Article in Book

Postby AliceWonderMisc » Mon Aug 20, 2018 3:38 pm

Hello, I need to cite an article that is part of a book and am having trouble figuring it out.

This is a proper bibtex entry for the book:

  1. @book{BIOVIPERS,
  2. title={Biology of Vipers},
  3. editor={Gordon W. Schuett and Mats H\"oggren and Michael E. Douglas and Harry W. Greene},
  4. publisher={Eagle Mountain Publishing, LC},
  5. location={Eagle Mountain, Utah},
  6. year=2002
  7. }


This is *almost* a proper entry for the part of the book I need to cite -

  1. @fubar{DOUGLASS:2002,
  2. author={Michael E. Douglas and Marlis R. Douglas and Gordon W. Schuett and Louis W. Porras and Andrew T. Holycross},
  3. year={2002},
  4. month={January},
  5. pages={11-51},
  6. title={Phylogeography of the Western Rattlesnake (Crotalus viridis) Complex, with Emphasis on the Colorado Plateau},
  7. url={https://www.researchgate.net/publication/256375549}
  8. }


The @fubar is obviously intentionally wrong, but that basically has everything I need for the citation *except* noting that the work being cited is part of the book in the first entry.

How is that done?

Thank you for any suggestions.

P.S. researchgate has a link for creating a bibtex but it is extremely incomplete in this case and should not be used.

Solved -

  1. @incollection{DOUGLASS:2002,
  2. author={Michael E. Douglas and Marlis R. Douglas and Gordon W. Schuett and Louis W. Porras and Andrew T. Holycross},
  3. year={2002},
  4. pages={11-51},
  5. title={Phylogeography of the Western Rattlesnake (Crotalus viridis) Complex, with Emphasis on the Colorado Plateau},
  6. booktitle={Biology of Vipers},
  7. editor={Gordon W. Schuett and Mats H\"oggren and Michael E. Douglas and Harry W. Greene},
  8. publisher={Eagle Mountain Publishing, LC},
  9. location={Eagle Mountain, Utah},
  10. url={https://www.researchgate.net/publication/256375549}
  11. }


That works and creates the bibliography entry I want.

Hi,

welcome to the forum!

Thank you for posting the solution you found. I guess the point is to use @incollection. Perhaps the preconditions, such as the used bibtex style, were not clear here so there was no answer yet.

Best regards,

Stefan

Ah yes.

To be clear I am using
  1. apalike.bst


In the future I will want to use a modified version of that which, when the url field is present, turns the title into a hyperlink and a footnote that contains the url for the benefit of printed versions.

But other than that,
  1. apalike.bst
typographically does exactly what I want.

So anyway apalike.bst is what I'm using, inside a TeXLive 2016 environment (I'll update next time I find an issue where the solution is to update, but I haven't run into such an issue since 2016 so...)
