Building a Wiley Manuscript with Per-Chapter Bibliographies

One of Tech’s faculty and a post-doctoral research associate are working on a book for Wiley, and they want to have a list of references after each chapter, rather than one set of references for the entire book. Wiley’s LaTeX guides don’t give particularly good information on how to do this, and I never got a response back from the Wiley documentclass author on how best to handle this. So, in the interests of anyone searching for this in the future, here’s what I came up with.

Procedure:

  1. Pick the appopriate script for your operating system. There’s one script for Windows users, and another for Unix and OS X users.
  2. Edit the script to match your main filename (without the .tex extension). In my example, my main file was w-bksamp-minimal.tex, so I used w-bksamp-minimal.
  3. Rename your chapter content so each filename starts with “chapter-” — if you don’t like that restriction, feel free to edit the script to your liking.
  4. Make sure you use \include instead of \input to add each chapter to your main .tex file. Using \input will put multiple chapters’ citations into one .aux file, and BibTeX won’t be able to tell which bibliography entries go with each chapter.
  5. Adjust the latex, dvips, and ps2pdf lines to match your build process. I normally don’t use dvi at all, but I didn’t want to disrupt the Wiley procedures by default.
