[Tex/LaTex] Can’t add title to reference in achemso bibliography


I'm trying to submit an article to The Journal of Physical Chemistry, using acshemso template at Overleaf.
There are no titles of the references, but it's necessary according to journal rules.

I changed ctrl-article-title to "yes" in acs-achemso.bib file of the template:

  ctrl-article-title  = "yes",
  ctrl-chapter-title  = "no",
  ctrl-etal-number    = "15",
  ctrl-etal-firstonly = "yes",

Nothing changed.

I tried to use package downloaded by the link from author guidelines, but it also without the titles of the references.

Please, help me. It's my first time using Tex, so I can't imagine what can I do to manage appearance of references titles.

Article titles are not included by default. You have to specify what sort of journal you are writing for, then the achemso package will adapt the document style according to its guidelines.

For example, if you are writing an article for the "Journal of Physical Chemistry A", you should have this at the start of your document:


The list of available journals can be found on page 4 of the achemso documentation.

Here is a full working example:

Test \cite{myreference}

with a random reference:

    author = {Jåstad, Eirik O. and Torheim, Turid and Villeneuve, Kathleen M. and Kvaal, Knut and Hole, Eli O. and Sagstuen, Einar and Malinen, Eirik and Futsaether, Cecilia M.},
    title = {In Quest of the Alanine R3 Radical: Multivariate EPR Spectral Analyses of X-Irradiated Alanine in the Solid State},
    journal = {The Journal of Physical Chemistry A},
    volume = {121},
    number = {38},
    pages = {7139-7147},
    year = {2017},
    doi = {10.1021/acs.jpca.7b06447},
    note ={PMID: 28829916},
    URL = {http://dx.doi.org/10.1021/acs.jpca.7b06447},
    eprint = {http://dx.doi.org/10.1021/acs.jpca.7b06447}
