# "Internet Reference" bibliography style for SAE papers using biblatex/biber

April 16Hits:2

Despite my lack of LaTeX skills, with the help of the forum, I have been making good progress on developing an updated SAE class for writing SAE papers with LaTeX. Next up: Properly formatting "Internet References" in the bibliography.

I am using biblatex/biber, and while it seems obvious that there is a lot of power in using this combination for bibliographies, it is not obvious to me on how to manipulate the formatting. So again, I ask for help in this area.

Let's take as an example the following bib-entry:

@Online{Dowanol2012,   Title                    = {DOWANOL (TM) TPM Technical Data Sheet},   Url                      = {http://msdssearch.dow.com/PublishedLiteratureDOWCOM/dh_08ad/0901b803808ad68e.pdf?filepath=oxysolvents/pdfs/noreg/110-00619.pdf&fromPage=GetDoc},   Note                     = {Accessed 9/8/2015},   Organization             = {The DOW Chemical Company},   Urldate                  = {2015-09-08},   Year                     = {2012}, } 


With my current attempt, I get the following entry in my bibliography:

DOWANOL (TM) TPM Technical Data Sheet, Accessed 9/8/2015. The DOW Chemical Company, 2012, http://msdssearch.dow.com/PublishedLiteratureDOWCOM/dh_08ad/0901b803808ad68e.pdf?filepath=oxysolvents/pdfs/noreg/110-00619.pdf&fromPage=GetDoc, accessed 09/08/2015.

What I need it to look like is the following:

The DOW Chemical Company, "DOWANOL (TM) TPM Technical Data Sheet," http://msdssearch.dow.com/PublishedLiteratureDOWCOM/dh_08ad/0901b803808ad68e.pdf?filepath=oxysolvents/pdfs/noreg/110-00619.pdf&fromPage=GetDoc, accessed Sep. 2015.

The urldate field is maybe not the most appropriate to use for getting Sep. 2015 instead of 09/08/2015, I'm not sure. Maybe I can access month/year from the urldate?

Also, I removed italics on the title using the following:

\DeclareFieldFormat[online]{title}{#1} 


But after that, I'm not sure how to reorder everything, get rid of the double printing of the url date and do all the formatting (i.e. quotation marks around the title, etc.)

Here is a current MWE:



Oh, and technically the hyperlink should be underlined and blue... I can get it blue, but I'm having trouble getting it underlined. Especially only for urls that are part of the "@online" bib-type. URLs for the DOIs of journal articles should be underlined but not blue (I can address this later in a separate thread though, just trying to give context for the weird formatting I am trying to accomplish to meet SAE guidelines).
