I would like to generate cited references and bibliography using biber and xelatex through org mode, but have not figured out how to do so.

I have to use xelatex because I am working with Chinese articles.

Sample Document:

#+TITLE: How to Automate Footnote Citations in Org-Mode
#+AUTHOR: Sati Bodhi

* Cite Test

This is a statement with a footnote reference. [fn:2a55720f42c74dd:This is the footnote with a citation that is supposed to be formatted in Chicago-fullnote style. cite:Rogersbecoming1995。]


bibliography:thesis.bib
bibliographystyle:chicago-notes

Bibtex Entry:

@book{Rogersbecoming1995,
  title = {On Becoming a Person: A Therapist's View of Psychotherapy},
  author = {Rogers, Carl R.},
  year = {1995},
  publisher = {{Houghton Mifflin}},
  address = {{Boston, New York}},
  abstract = {Collection of essays by American psychotherapist Carl Rogers written between 1951 and 1961, in which he put forth his ideas about self-esteem, flexibility, respect for self, and acceptance of others.},
  isbn = {9780395755310},
  keywords = {Client-centered psychotherapy},
  language = {eng},
  place = {;}

Generated Bibliography and Footnote:

Bibliography

Footnote


Update:

I've found my own solution. Because I cannot award myself the bounty, I would like to seek an explanation as to why the bibliography and style had to be hard-coded this way and whether, given the current working solution, there can be a more flexible way of dealing with this. The best answer would be awarded the bounty.

Note:

The format used to specify the bibliography data source and its citation style in the question above was one offered by org-ref.

I've found my own solution. Here are the changes I've made to the source and configuration code that made this work.

Source:

#+TITLE: How to Automate Footnote Citations in Org-Mode
#+AUTHOR: Sati Bodhi

#+BEGIN_abstract
This is the abstract.
#+END_abstract

* Cite Test

This is a statement with a footnote reference. [fn:2a55720f42c74dd:This is the footnote with a citation that is supposed to be formatted in Chicago-fullnote style. [[cite:Rogersbecoming1995][121-127]]。]


#+LATEX: \printbibliography

Configuration:

% For Generation of Citations and Bibliography
