Academizer allows you to manage Bibtex entries and define how you want them to be rendered.

  • Each Bibtex entry can be complemented with links to the paper, publisher website, thumbnails, which can be used in the citation style to automatically set links.

  • Three rendering styles are provided in this release: simple, thumbnail, and detailed (see below). You can customise them by editing the related css file.

  • References can be queried and included in any page through a shortcode. You can display all references, or select them by entry type, or user-defined tags.

How does it work?

You first need to define a Reference Type through the corresponding page, for each Bibtex entry you plan to use (e.g., article, book, inproceedings, etc.), by choosing the appropriate type through the dropdown list. You can select how you wish to render each reference of that type by either choosing a pre-defined style or creating your own (see the Format notation in the Installation tab).

You add new references as custom posts through the related menu. You simply need to paste the Bibtex code in the corresponding field in the page. If the Bibtex is well-formed, the appropriate reference type will be detected. If a format is defined for that type, the preview will render the citation in that style. You can also associate to each reference a set of metadata (such as the paper URL, video URL, etc.).

You can display a (filtered) list of references by using the [academizer <options>] shortcode.
