I'm writing my thesis with Latex and I use Mendeley for the citation.
When I add a book and specify some attributes, like title, author and ISBN, Mendeley automatically adds some missing attributes.
One of those attributes is the URL of a book. Usually, this is a URL from
After generating the document with Latex, the URL also appears in my bibliography. It could look like:
Peter Smith. A Long Book Title. Pearson Education, 2008, p. 530. isbn: 0-123-54431-2. doi: 10 . 1336 / 976 - 3 - 434 - 03844 - 5. arXiv: arXiv : 1011 . 1889v3. url: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/012345678?ie=UTF8&tag=petersmith-20&linkCode=as2&camp=4321&creative=4567&creativeASIN=087239586.
So the URL is very long and, in my opinion, useless. This is not the "real" URL of the book (not the URL of the author or the publisher) and I don't think, it adds any value to the bibliography.
In Mendeley, when I click on
Tools->Options->Document Details, I can specify which attributes I want to appear. Sadly, I can't uncheck URL in the document type
Book. So I assume, this is important?
Can I just manually remove the URLs of all by books?
