Bi­bla­tex style for ISO 690 stan­dard

Bi­bla­tex is a bib­li­og­ra­phy and ci­ta­tion tool for . This project pro­vides sup­port for ci­ta­tions in ISO 690 style. As the stan­dard is a lit­tle bit am­bigu­ous in some de­tails re­gard­ing for­mat­ting of records, we largely fol­low re­quire­ments of Czech in­ter­pre­ta­tion, as it is re­quired form in many Czech uni­ver­si­ties. The style can be used in other lan­guages as well, of course.


Open the ter­mi­nal and find lo­ca­tion of your TEXMFHOME di­rec­tory with this com­mand:

kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFHOME

Open this di­rec­tory and check that the di­rec­tory $TEXMFHOME/tex/latex ex­ists. If it doesn't ex­ist, you must cre­ate it. You can do this from the com­mand line or us­ing a file man­ager. Open the $TEXMFHOME/tex/latex di­rec­tory and ei­ther run the com­mand

git clone git@github.com:michal-h21/biblatex-iso690.git

or un­zip the file


here. You should be able to use bibla­tex-iso690 now.


\usepackage[english,czech]{babel} % main language of the document must be last
   backend=biber        % if we want unicode
  ,style=iso-authoryear % or iso-numeric for numeric citation method
  ,autolang=other       % to support multiple languages in bibliography
  ,sortlocale=cs_CZ     % locale of main language, for sorting
  ,bibencoding=UTF8     % this is necessary only if bibliography file is in different encoding than main document

Cus­tom op­tions

Above and be­yond the scope of pack­age op­tions pro­vided by biblatex it­self, here are also some more. De­fault val­ues are in bold.

  • spacecolon add space be­fore colon in pub­lisher and ti­tle (and also ti­tle and sub­ti­tle):
  • pagetotal print out to­tal num­ber of pages as an ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion in the notes sec­tion:

Bi­b­li­o­graphic fields

Some fields have a dif­fer­ent mean­ing than in plain BibTeX.

1. If the pub­li­ca­tion is writ­ten in a dif­fer­ent lan­guage to the main doc­u­ment, it should have a filled langid field.

langid = {czech}

2. Publi­ca­tions with on­line ver­sions should have a urldate field. It is the date when you last checked the pub­li­ca­tion on­line.

urldate = {2011-01-12}

3. If the pub­li­ca­tion has more than one ISBN or ISSN num­ber, use just one of them.

4. Pub­lisher and place:

location = {Praha},
publisher = {Academia}
