Bibliography Style Files and Examples

Usage Notes


Be sure to load url.sty in the preamble of your document.

On the Math Linux Systems

These files are available on the math department Linux systems, where they are stored in the directory /shared/local/texlive/texmf-local/bibtex/bst/hmcmath. You can use them by simply specifying them in your document's \bibliographystyle command.

On Your Own Machine

To use these files on your own machine, or on another machine that's not maintained by the mathematics department, you can copy them from a math machine or download them from this page.

Store them in your own TEXMF tree (generally, that means in ~/texmf/bibtex/bst on a Unix-like machine, although it should be in ~/Library/texmf/bibtex/bst on a Mac OS X machine) or copy them into the same directory as the document you're working on. Then use the same \bibliographystyle commands to use them as you would if you were working on a math Linux machine.

Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs)

Note that if your bibliography entries use DOIs, you may also want to define the \doi command to provide an attractive format. For example,

\newcommand{\doi}[1]{\textsc{doi:} \textsf{#1}\xspace}

would produce a DOI label in small capitals, with the DOI itself set in a sans-serif font. Depending on the length and content of a DOI, you might consider setting it using the commands provided by the url.sty package, instead.
