The Problem Being Solved
Some journals accept the reference list only as
\bibitems. If you use BibTeX, there is no problem: just paste the content of the
.bbl file into your document. However, there were no out-of-the-box way to do the same for
biblatex, and you had to struggle with searching appropriate
.bst files, or formatting your reference list by hand, or something like that.
Now you haven't to.
In preamble, after the
biblatex package is loaded via
At the very end of document:
bibitems will be written directly to the PDF file.
When it's time to switch to
bibitems (e.g. before sending the paper to the journal), just copy them to the to your
.tex file, remove
biblatex commands and load
This package itself is a hack. Moreover, it is (as for 02 March 2020) under rather an active development. New features may appear and disappear, and the API may be unstable. Thus, you may want to download
biblatex2bibitem.sty and keep it near your article instead of (or in addition to) having installing it system-wide.
Linebreaks in generated bibliography
You can pass
block=par option to
biblatex like that:
but not like that (see also https://github.com/plk/biblatex/issues/968):
It will add linebreaks in generated
bibitems and make the code a bit more beautiful :)
If you really want to have a space after the title of an e.g. an article, just
By default, generated
bibitems are separated by a line with a percent sign on it to make the readng of the cde easier. You can tweak this by e.g.
(for putting all the
bibitems into monotype font) or e.g.
(for disabling "blank" lines but not linebreaks when copying).
