gcite – Ci­ta­tions in a reader-friendly style

The pack­age al­lows ci­ta­tions in the Ger­man style, which is con­sid­ered by many to be par­tic­u­larly reader-friendly. The ci­ta­tion pro­vides a small amount of bib­li­o­graphic in­for­ma­tion in a foot­note on the page where each ci­ta­tion is made. It com­bines a de­sire to elim­i­nate un­nec­es­sary page-turn­ing with the look-up ef­fi­ciency af­forded by nu­meric ci­ta­tions.

The pack­age makes use of Bib, and is con­sid­ered ex­per­i­men­tal; com­ment is in­vited.
