# cb2Bib BiBTeX Entry Types Available as cb2Bib Fields

cb2Bib includes nearly all standard and extended BibTeX fields. The complete list is as follows. The field descriptions are taken from The BibTeX Format written by Dana Jacobsen.

### Main Fields

abstract An abstract of the work.

author The name(s) of the author(s), in the format described in the LaTeX book.

file Usually, the PDF filename of the work.

journal A journal name. Abbreviations are provided for many journals.

keywords Key words used for searching or possibly for annotation.

pages One or more page numbers or range of numbers, such as 42--111 or 7,41,73--97 or 43+ (the +’ in this last example indicates pages following that don’t form a simple range). To make it easier to maintain Scribe-compatible databases, the standard styles convert a single dash (as in 7-33) to the double dash used in TeX to denote number ranges (as in 7--33).

title The work’s title, typed as explained in the LaTeX book.

volume The volume of a journal or multi-volume book.

number The number of a journal, magazine, technical report, or of a work in a series. An issue of a journal or magazine is usually identified by its volume and number; the organization that issues a technical report usually gives it a number; and sometimes books are given numbers in a named series.

year The year of publication or, for an unpublished work, the year it was written. Generally it should consist of four numerals, such as 1984, although the standard styles can handle any year whose last four nonpunctuation characters are numerals, such as \hbox{(about 1984)}.

### Other Fields

address Usually the address of the publisher or other type of institution. For major publishing houses, van Leunen recommends omitting the information entirely. For small publishers, on the other hand, you can help the reader by giving the complete address.

annote An annotation. It is not used by the standard bibliography styles, but may be used by others that produce an annotated bibliography.

booktitle Title of a book, part of which is being cited. See the LaTeX book for how to type titles. For book entries, use the title field instead.

chapter A chapter (or section or whatever) number.

doi The Digital Object Identifier is a unique string created to identify a piece of intellectual property in an online environment.

edition The edition of a book—for example, Second”. This should be an ordinal, and should have the first letter capitalized, as shown here; the standard styles convert to lower case when necessary.

editor Name(s) of editor(s), typed as indicated in the LaTeX book. If there is also an author field, then the editor field gives the editor of the book or collection in which the reference appears.

eprint Electronic document file.

institution The sponsoring institution of a technical report.

ISBN The International Standard Book Number.

ISSN The International Standard Serial Number. Used to identify a journal.

month The month in which the work was published or, for an unpublished work, in which it was written. You should use the standard three-letter abbreviation, as described in Appendix B.1.3 of the LaTeX book.

note Any additional information that can help the reader. The first word should be capitalized.

organization The organization that sponsors a conference or that publishes a manual.

publisher The publisher’s name.

school The name of the school where a thesis was written.

series The name of a series or set of books. When citing an entire book, the the title field gives its title and an optional series field gives the name of a series or multi-volume set in which the book is published.

URL` The WWW Universal Resource Locator that points to the item being referenced. This often is used for technical reports to point to the ftp site where the postscript source of the report is located.
