# [Tex/LaTex] Cite web page with no author, displaying title without quotes (revtex4.1)

bibliographiesbibtexrevtex

I am writing a document using revtex4.1, and I would like to cite some web pages with no particular author in the bibliography.

What I have in mind is pretty simple: I would like the elements to be shown in the bibliography as

<Title>, <url>, [Accessed: <access_date>]      (1)


The bibliography entry @online does not seem to work if the field author is omitted. Another option is to use @misc, and it is what I have done:

\documentclass[aps,jmp,amsmath,amssymb,reprint]{revtex4-1}

\usepackage{url}

\begin{filecontents}{biblio.bib}
@misc{lammps,
title = {{LAMMPS website}},
howpublished = {\url{http://lammps.sandia.gov}},
note = {[Accessed: 10-October-2017]}
}
\end{filecontents}

\begin{document}
\onecolumngrid

See LAMMPS \cite{lammps}.

\bibliography{biblio.bib}

\end{document}


This is the result:

This is almost OK. There are, however, two things I would like to change:

1. I would like the title to appear without the quotes.
2. Apparently, there are problems related to the author field being empty: all the entries with no author are considered from the same author, and if multiple @misc entry with no authors are added this causes problems.

Is there a way to obtain the result I am looking for (1)? No quotes, no conflict because entries with no author are considered from the same author.

Or is the only option to create my own BibTeX entry style?

I found a workaround. By default, revtex4.1 puts footnotes in the bibliography (see the user guide). Therefore, I can easily obtain what I am looking for by using a footnote:

\documentclass[aps,jmp,amsmath,amssymb,reprint]{revtex4-1}

\usepackage{hyperref}

\begin{filecontents}{biblio.bib}
@misc{lammps,
title = {{LAMMPS website}},
howpublished = {\url{http://lammps.sandia.gov}},
note = {[Accessed: 10-October-2017]}
}
\end{filecontents}

\begin{document}

\onecolumngrid

See LAMMPS \footnote{LAMMPS website, \url{http://lammps.sandia.gov}, [Accessed: 10-October-2017]}.

\bibliography{biblio.bib}

\end{document}


Result:

However, two things must be noticed:

1. \usepackage{hyperref} must be used instead of \usepackage{url}
2. It is necessary to include a bibliography of some kind, even we do not cite anything from it.
