Summary description: BibTeX styles to meet State Standards (GOSTs) of Russia
License type: lppl

Announcement text:
GOST is a bundle of BibTeX styles designed to meet State Standards (GOST)
on information, librarianship and publishing issued by Russian Federation 
and interstate committee of former USSR States. 

The System of Standards includes:
GOST 7.0.5-2008  Bibliographic reference. 
                 General requirements and rules of making.
GOST 7.1  -2003  Bibliographic record. 
                 Bibliographic description. 
                 General requirements and rules.
GOST 7.80 -2000  Bibliographic record. 
                 Heading. General requirements and rules.
GOST 7.11 -2004  Bibliographic description and references. 
                 Rules for the abbreviation of words and word combinations 
                 in foreign European languages

The GOST bundle contains 8 BibTeX styles. These include 2 BibTeX styles 
for documents in 8bit encoding and 2 equivalent styles in UTF8 encoding.                                                                                                    

Encoding        |   Unsorted               Sorted     
8bit            |   gost705.bst            gost705s.bst  
utf8            |   unicode-gost705.bst    unicode-gost705s.bst

4 styles are retained for backward compatibility. They do not conform 
standards listed above.

Encoding        |   Unsorted               Sorted     
8bit            |   gost780u.bst           gost780s.bst  
utf8            |   unicode-gost780u.bst   unicode-gost780s.bst  

To produce 8bit styles, you need to download the files `gost.ins' and 
`gost.dtx'. Run LaTeX on gost.ins.  Similarly, to produce unicoded 
style, run LaTeX on unicode-gost.ins.

Beyond that, GOST bundle contains CS files (codepage and sorting order).

Encoding        |   CSF                 Sorting order
cp866           |   ruscii.csf          Cyrillic first, Latin 
cp1251          |   cp1251.csf          Cyrillic first, Latin 
koi8-u          |   koi8u.csf           Cyrillic first, Latin 
utf8            |   utf8cyrillic.csf    Cyrillic first, Latin 

In addition, BibTeX8 distribution comes with few more CSFs.

Encoding        |   CSF                 Sorting order
cp866           |   cp866rus.csf        Latin first, Cyrillic 

How to use

1. Select bibliography style by adding appropriate \bibliographystyle 
   declaration to your source file <filename>.tex, e.g. 


2. Add the field language="ukrainian" or language="russian" to the
   bibliographic entries in Ukrainian or Russian languages in your
   databese; English is the default language. German, Italian and 
   French are partially supported.

3. To compile list of references from your database use bibtex8.exe
   rather than bibtex.exe. Depending on the codepage of your 
   bibliographic database, indicate one of the CS files
   listed above as option to bibtex8.exe.  Run LaTeX, then run 
   bibTeX8 and LaTeX again:

   	latex <filename>.tex
   	bibtex8 -B -c <csf_file>.csf <filename>.aux
	latex <filename>.tex

4. For details on preparing bibliographic database see
   examples in gost*.pdf.

5. Unicode-gost*.bst styles are primarily intended for use
   with unicode compilers (xelatex and lualatex). They 
   should be preferred as well when using 8bit compilers 
   (latex and pdflatex) if source file is in utf8 encoding.


Every GOST style defines few commands to format some parts of a 
reference. You can redefine these commands prior to
the \bibliography{<bibtex_style>} command. Initial 
definitions are listed below. 

	\providecommand*{\url}[1]{{\small #1}}

By default, gost styles separate logical parts of a bibliography 
record by a period and cyrdash (. "---). It is legitimate to drop 
that dash by overriding the command \BibDash as follows


By default, \BibDash is equivalent to the shorthand "--- 
introduced by the babel package with the option russuan.
It prints a so called cyrillic dash (\cyrdash), which is 
20% shorter then ordinary LaTeX dash (---), and puts 
unbreakable space before \cyrdash so that dash never appears 
in the beginning of a line. 

What's new in version 2012.02.02

1. Support for GOST 7.0.5-2008 is provided. 
2. @Online entry is added to format a reference to electronic
   resource on Internet. 
3. Urldate field is added to format the date of last access to
   Internet resource.
