I asked the Springer people whether a biblatex style corresponding to
their spbasic.bst exists, but the answer was not very helpful ('it
doesn't matter ...).
What I like to know is, how to set the options of biblatex in order to
get the spbasic output. Or could I use the bibtex export of the
bibliography and include it in the pdf file? Not very elegant...
I remember, for bibtex exists a link which shows the various outputs of
the bibliography styles+options (and of the text citations) together
with the way to proceed to get them. Would be good to have something
similar for biblatex.
Specifically, I would like to have in the bibliography Authorname, only
first character of forename without point (e.g. Mayer P). As it is now
the forenames are either before or after the name, abbreviated or in
full. How to restrict it to 3 names was explained already by Herbert Voss.
