biblatex-oxref: Biblatex styles inspired by the Oxford Guide to Style

This bundle provides four biblatex styles that implement (some of) the stipulations and examples provided by the 2014 New Hart's Rules and the 2002 Oxford Guide to Style:

  • oxnotes is a style similar to the standard verbose, intended for use with footnotes;
    • oxnum is a style similar to the standard numeric, intended for use with numeric in-text citations.
    • oxalph is a style similar to the standard alphabetic, intended for use with alphabetic in-text citations.
    • oxyear is a style similar to the standard authoryear, intended for use with parenthetical in-text citations.

Installation

Dependencies

To compile the documentation you will need to have the minted package working, which in turn relies on Python 2.6+ and Pygments. See the documentation of that package for details.

Managed way

The latest stable release of the biblatex-oxref bundle has been packaged for Live and MiK. If you are running Live and have tlmgr installed, you can install the bundle simply by running tlmgr install biblatex-oxref. If you are running MiK, you can install the bundle by running mpm --install=biblatex-oxref. Both tlmgr and mpm have GUI versions that you might find friendlier.

Automated way

A makefile is provided which you can use with the Make utility on UNIX-like systems:

  • Running make source generates the derived files
    • README.md
      • oxref.bbx, oxnotes.bbx, oxnotes-ibid.bbx, oxnotes-note.bbx, oxnotes-inote.bbx, oxnotes-trad1.bbx, oxnotes-trad2.bbx, oxnotes-trad3.bbx, oxyear.bbx, oxnum.bbx, oxalph.bbx
        • oxnotes.cbx, oxnotes-ibid.cbx, oxnotes-note.cbx, oxnotes-inote.cbx, oxnotes-trad1.cbx, oxnotes-trad2.cbx, oxnotes-trad3.cbx, oxyear.cbx, oxnum.cbx, oxalph.cbx
        • american-oxref.lbx, british-oxref.lbx, english-oxref.lbx
        • oxnotes.dbx, oxnotes-ibid.dbx, oxnotes-note.dbx, oxnotes-inote.dbx, oxnotes-trad1.dbx, oxnotes-trad2.dbx, oxnotes-trad3.dbx, oxyear.dbx, oxnum.dbx, oxalph.dbx
        • oxref.bib
        • oxref.ins
        • oxnotes-doc.tex, oxyear-doc.tex, oxnum-doc.tex, oxalph-doc.tex
  • Running make generates the above files and also oxref.pdf, oxnotes-doc.pdf, oxyear-doc.pdf, oxnum-doc.pdf and oxalph-doc.pdf.
  • Running make inst installs the files in the user's tree. You can undo this with make uninst.
  • Running make install installs the files in the local tree. You can undo this with make uninstall.
  • Running make clean removes auxiliary files from the working directory.
  • Running make distclean removes the generated files from the working directory as well.

Manual way

To install the bundle from scratch, follow these instructions. If you have downloaded the zip file from the Releases page on GitHub, you can skip the first two steps.

  1. Run luatex oxref.dtx to generate the source files. (You can safely skip this step if you are confident about step 2.)
  1. Compile oxref.dtx, oxnotes-doc.tex, oxyear-doc.tex, and oxnum-doc.tex with Lua and Biber to generate the documentation. You will need to enable shell escape so that minted can typeset the listings.
  1. Move the files to your tree as follows:
    • source/latex/biblatex-oxref: oxref.dtx, (oxref.ins)
      • tex/latex/biblatex-oxref: american-oxref.lbx, british-oxref.lbx, english-oxref.lbx, oxalph.bbx, oxalph.cbx, oxalph.dbx, oxnotes.bbx, oxnotes.cbx, oxnotes.dbx, oxnotes-ibid.bbx, oxnotes-ibid.cbx, oxnotes-ibid.dbx, oxnotes-inote.bbx, oxnotes-inote.cbx, oxnotes-inote.dbx, oxnotes-note.bbx, oxnotes-note.cbx, oxnotes-note.dbx, oxnotes-trad1.bbx, oxnotes-trad1.cbx, oxnotes-trad1.dbx, oxnotes-trad2.bbx, oxnotes-trad2.cbx, oxnotes-trad2.dbx, oxnotes-trad3.bbx, oxnotes-trad3.cbx, oxnotes-trad3.dbx, oxnum.bbx, oxnum.cbx, oxnum.dbx, oxref.bbx, oxyear.bbx, oxyear.cbx, oxyear.dbx
      • doc/latex/biblatex-oxref: README.md, oxalph-doc.pdf, oxalph-doc.tex, oxnotes-doc.pdf, oxnotes-doc.tex, oxnum-doc.pdf, oxnum-doc.tex, oxref.bib, oxref.pdf, oxyear-doc.pdf, oxyear-doc.tex
  1. You may then have to update your installation's file name database before and friends can see the files.

biblatex-oxref – Bib styles inspired by the Oxford Guide to Style

This bundle provides four Bib styles that implement (many of) the stipulations and examples provided by the 2014 New Hart’s Rules and the 2002 Oxford Guide to Style:

  • ‘oxnotes’ is a style similar to the standard ‘verbose’, intended for use with footnotes;
  • ‘oxnum’ is a style similar to the standard ‘numeric’, intended for use with numeric in-text citations;
  • ‘oxalph’ is a style similar to the standard ‘alphabetic’, intended for use with alphabetic in-text citations;
  • ‘oxyear’ is a style similar to the standard ‘author-year’, intended for use with parenthetical in-text citations.

The bundle provides support for a wide variety of content types, including manuscripts, audiovisual resources, social media and legal references.

These styles should be considered experimental. In particular, the ways in which they handle certain tricky references are subject to change.
