    Dear Friend,

    I am writing a research report with the layout as shown below. The paragraphs are to be numbered continuously from Chapter 1 to Chapter 4. Also, I am to Insert Notes at the end of each number, while a bibliography should be at the end all the Chapter. The bibliography is also to be in different parts as shown below. I have tried to write latex codes in order to do this but without any success. I will appreciate if you can help me with the right codes to do this. Thanks

    CHAPTER 1
    1. The blah blah ……

    NOTES
    1.
    2.
    3.
    CHAPTER 2
    2.

    NOTES
    1.
    2.
    3.
    CHAPTER 3
    3.
    CHAPTER 4

    4.

    • Hi Clement,

      Thanks for your question. Concerning your question on notes, how about using the “starred” chapter command:

      \documentclass{report}
      \begin{document}
      \tableofcontents
      \chapter{First}
      \chapter*{Notes}
      \chapter{Second}
      \chapter*{Notes}
      \end{document}

      Assuming you are using the biblatex package, what you can do is using keywords in the bib file. With these, it is then relatively simple to print several bibliographies. Here is an example:

      \documentclass{report}
      \usepackage[sorting=none, backend=biber]{biblatex}
      \usepackage{filecontents}
      \begin{filecontents}{references.bib}
      @book{knuth1986texbook,
        keywords = {book},
        title={The texbook},
        author={Knuth, D.E. and Bibby, D.},
        volume={1993},
        year={1986},
        publisher={Addison-Wesley}
      }
      @article{knuth1977fast,
        keywords = {article},
        title={Fast pattern matching in strings},
        author={Knuth, D.E. and Morris Jr, J.H. and Pratt, V.R.},
        journal={SIAM journal on computing},
        volume={6},
        number={2},
        pages={323--350},
        year={1977},
        publisher={SIAM}
      }
      \end{filecontents}
      \addbibresource{references.bib}
      \begin{document}
      See \cite{knuth1986texbook} and \cite{knuth1977fast}.
      \printbibliography[title={Book references},keyword=book]
      \printbibliography[title={Article references},keyword=article]
      \end{document}

      Another possibility would be to use the bib-entry type as an optional argument for printbibliography, e.g.:

      \printbibliography[title={Book references},type=book]
      \printbibliography[title={Article references},type=article]
      \printbibliography[title={Other references},nottype=article, nottype=book]

      HTH, Tom.
