The LaTeX astron package

Version: 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

The astron package produces author-year citations in two forms: (Author, year) and (year). It is required by these BibTeX bibliography styles:

  • astron.bst—produces bibliographies in the format required by the European astronomical journal Astronomy and Astrophysics.

  • apa.bst—produces bibliographies in the American Psychological Association format.

  • bbs.bst—produces bibliographies approximately in the format of Behavioral and Brain Sciences.

  • cbe.bst—produces bibliographies approximately in the Council of Biology Editors format.

  • humanbio.bst—produces bibliographies with a format similar to that used in Human Biology.

  • humannat.bst—produces bibliographies with a format of Human Nature and American Anthropologist.

  • jtb.bst—produces bibliographies based loosely on the format used in the Journal of Theoretical Biology.

Other than adding the package to your document, no action is required. The astron package is installed in the TCITeX/TeX/LaTeX/contrib/bibtex directory. See the package documentation for more information.
