Directory biblio/bibtex/contrib/apalike-ejor



This is a apalike-ejor bibliography style, forked from apalike version 0.99a by Oren Patashnik. The original copyright and documentation are included in the file.


This is a lightly modified APA-like bibliography style made in accordance with the European Journal of Operational Research reference style guidelines.

Specific deviations from the original apalike settings include the following:

  • Changed "and" to "&" in lists of multiple authors.
  • Changed ":" to ", " between volume number and page numbers.
  • Added a hyperlinked URL field (requires hyperref).
  • Added a hyperlinked DOI field (requires hyperref).
  • Removed address information from publisher names.
  • Removed editor information, publisher information, and the words "In" and "pages" from conference proceedings.
  • Removed "Thesis" label and address from theses.
  • Changed book edition to follow the title in parentheses, and abbreviated "edition".
  • Added chapter and page number support for books.
  • Added a new dataset field for misc references. If it contains any value besides "0" or "false", the string "dataset" is prepended to the reference.
  • Moved the note field to the end of references (except for unpublished).

Installation and Usage

To install this style file, download apalike-ejor.bst and place it somewhere where your compiler can find it. The easiest way to do this is to place it in the same directory as your main file, but depending on your system and distribution it is also possible to place it in a directory visible to your compiler. This requires careful consideration of your directory structure.

In my case, as a user of MiK, I created a LocalTeXMF/ directory and saved the file as /LocalTeXMF/bibtex/bst/bibtex/apalike-ejor.bst. I then opened the MiK console and added LocalTeXMF/ to my list of TEXMF root directories.

After the style file is installed, it can be applied to a file by using \bibliographystyle{apalike-ejor} before generating the bibliography. The included example.pdf shows an example of how to generate a document with apalike-ejor as its style.

Project Maintenance

I (Adam Rumpf) wrote this modification for my own personal use in submitting a paper to EJOR. I've made it publicly available just in case anyone is interested, but if I'm being honest I am unlikely to perform much maintenance on it unless I come across a bug during my own usage. For this reason I encourage anyone to use or modify it however they wish to suit their own purposes.
