Creating Custom Style BST file

Creating a custom bst file

Open a terminal and type:

latex makebst

This program will ask you questions and build a custom bibliography style. It’s a lot of questions, if you’re unsure just press enter and he will select a default value. At the end it will ask you if you want to proceed to compile your bst file.

Installing your bst file

To apply your new style (let’s assume you assigned the filename mystyle.bst), issue the following commands to install the style file locally:

mkdir -p ~/texmf/bibtex/bst
cp mystyle.bst ~/texmf/bibtex/bst/
texhash ~/texmf # Make TeX aware of what you just did

Finally, apply the bibliography style in the main.tex file.
