smart footnote citations with jurabib ?

Postby huckepick » Sat Mar 13, 2010 9:32 am

Hello everybody,

I am trying to use jurabib for my citations. Generally it works very well with the following implementation:

  1. (preamble)
  2.  
  3. \usepackage{jurabib}
  4. \jurabibsetup{super,authorformat=and,commabeforerest,see,pages=format,pages=test,bibformat=raggedright,authorformat=smallcaps, authorformat=year,dotafter=bibentry}
  5. \renewcommand*{\jbcitationyearformat}[1]{(#1)}
  6. \usepackage[multiple]{footmisc}
  7. \jbedseplikecite
  8.  
  9. (body)
  10.  
  11. [...]
  12.  
  13. \cite{Arnott2005} % referring to an external bibtex entry
  14.  
  15. [...]


The result is a footnote citation of {Arnott2005}. That's fine.

Now, my problem is - and maybe you can help me with that :

In case this citation appears several times in the text, every time I cite the reference a new footnote with exactly the same contents is created. So, it can happen that on the same printed page I have three footnotes with different footnote numbers but the same content.

It would look like this if cited three times on the same page:

  1. (body printed)
  2.  
  3. [...]1
  4. [...]2
  5. [...]3
  6.  
  7.  
  8. (footnote printed)
  9.  
  10. 1Arnott (2005).
  11. 2Arnott (2005).
  12. 3Arnott (2005).


What I am looking for is this:

A package or an option which does the following: Whenever I cite exactly the same contents and this citation shall be printed in a footnote AND these multiple identical citations happen to be printed on the same page, I'd like the package to refrain from creating a new footnote but instead referencing the already existing footnote number.

It should look like this if cited three times on the same page:

  1. (body printed)
  2.  
  3. [...]1
  4. [...]1
  5. [...]1
  6.  
  7.  
  8. (footnote printed)
  9.  
  10. 1Arnott (2005).


Alternatively, I would also be fine with the following result:

  1. (body printed)
  2.  
  3. [...]1
  4. [...]2
  5. [...]3
  6.  
  7.  
  8. (footnote printed)
  9.  
  10. 1,2,3Arnott (2005).



I don't care too much if this is good style.

My question is simply: Is that possible with jurabib or another package?



Thank you.
