BracketAfterproperties are the most important - they define which characters the citation number is wrapped in. The citation is composed as follows:
[BracketBefore][Number][BracketAfter]where [Number] is the number of the citation, determined according to the ordering of the bibliography and/or the position of the citation in the text. If a citation refers to several entries, these will be separated by the string given in the property
CitationSeparator(for instance, if
CitationSeparator=;, the citation could look like
[2;4;6]). If two or more of the entries have a series of consecutive numbers, the numbers can be grouped (for instance
[2-4]for 2, 3 and 4 or
[2;5-7]for 2, 5, 6 and 7). The property
-) determines which string separates the first and last of the grouped numbers. The integer property
MinimumGroupingCount(default 3) determines what number of consecutive numbers is required before entries are grouped. If
MinimumGroupingCount=3, the numbers 2 and 3 will not be grouped, while 2, 3, 4 will be. If
MinimumGroupingCount=0, no grouping will be done regardless of the number of consecutive numbers.
[BracketBefore][Author][YearSeparator][Year][BracketAfter]where [Author] is the result of looking up the field or fields given in the
AuthorFieldproperty, and formatting a list of authors. The list can contain up to
MaxAuthorsnames - if more are present, the list will be composed as the first author plus the text specified in the property
EtAlString. If the property
MaxAuthorsFirstis given, it overrides
MaxAuthorsthe first time each citation appears in the text.
AuthorFieldproperty, they will be looked up successively if the first field is empty for the given entry. In the example above, the "author" field will be used, but if empty, the "editor" field will be used as a backup.
AuthorSeparatorproperty, except for the last two names, which will be separated by the text given by
AuthorLastSeparator. If the property
AuthorLastSeparatorInTextis given, it overrides the former for citations of the in-text type. This makes it possible to get citations like
(Olsen & Jensen, 2008)and
Olsen and Jensen (2008)for the same style.
[Author][InTextYearSeparator][BracketBefore][Year][BracketAfter]where [Author] and [Year] are resolved in exactly the same way as for the parenthesis citations.
(Olsen, 2005b). In the bibliography layout, the placement of the "uniquefier" letter is indicated explicitly by inserting the virtual field
(Olsen, 2005a, b)rather than
Olsen, 2005a; Olsen, 2005b). The grouped uniquefier letters (a and b in our example) will be separated by the string specified by the
MultiCiteChronologicalshould be set to
default, followed by a '='. The
defaultlayout will be used for all entry types for which an explicit layout hasn't been given.
\fieldmarkers with the appropriate field name (e.g.
\authorfor inserting the author names). Formatting information for the field can be included here, following JabRef's standard export layout syntax. Refer to JabRef's documentation on custom export filters for more information about which formatters are available and tooling hints.
uniq, typically right after the year (as shown in the example style file). The
uniqfield is automatically set correctly for each entry before its reference text is laid out.
BracketAfterif set. These can be used if you want different types of brackets (or no brackets) in the reference list. Note that these need not be brackets as such - they can be any combination of characters.
