### How to have list of own publications in the frontmatter

Hi all,

Im wanting to have my publications listed in the frontmatter and referenced papers in the references after the conclusion as per normal. Ive used \bibliography{references.bib} for the reference list which is fine, but not sure how I can use \bibliography{publications.bib}

Should I put all items in one bibtex file and then filter out my own publications in the front matter or keep them in two separate bibtex files?

Thanks

If switching to biblatex is out of the question for any reason, you could use multibib.

Hi Bartman, thanks for the feedback.

I can get multibib to work, but Im not sure how to rename the title of the multibib publications page.

So my reference list is titled "List of References" at the end of the document which is fine, but then the publications list is titled "List of References" as well, how can I change this to List of "Publications" and/or even include subheadings for conference papers and journal articles?

P.S. Ive included the \usepackage{multibib} in the preamble, and \bibliography{publications.bib} in the frontmatter of the doc.

Thanks

Your request for help is more inviting for possible helpers, if you offer a minimal working example.

The path in the argument of the \bibliography command should be entered without filename extension.

I'm not familiar with multibib, but a look at its documentation tells me that the \newcites command should help change the heading.

Thanks, here is an example of what I have at the moment:

The main tex File

publications.tex file
\chapter{Publications}} \section{Journal Articles} \nocitearticles{*}\bibliographyarticles{backmatter/Gibbons.bib} \section{Conference Papers} \nocitepapers{*}\bibliographypapers{backmatter/Gibbons.bib} \endinput

The library.bib has all my normal references, and Gibbons.bib has my publications within.

When running this code, the Sections "Journal Articles" and "Conference Papers" are blank but the "Reference List" is populated correctly.

Any takers?

Ideally I want to use another bib package just for the publications in the front matter as I don't want to have to change all my citations in my document using our own bib package

Manage to get some sort of solution, but now it corrupts the whole tex file if I use a newcites{} reference in the caption of a graphic. Even when I remove this citation and backtrack, the file remains corrupted and I have to load a previously saved version just to be able to print an output
