I was trying to do the same thing and went thru a lot of pages until I found my solution here. I want Latex to render something like this: One of the main advantages of BibTeX, especially for people who write many research papers, is the ability to customize your bibliography to suit the requirements of a given publication. If it were totally manual, then adding or removing a reference would be a real chore, as you would have to re-number all the citations by hand. The addition of BibTeX adds extra complexity for the processing of the source to the desired output. BibTeX can be quite clever with names of authors. Citing a range of papers using numeric keys?
Mulitple reference citation
The first line just terminates the current paragraph and page. OK, so what is going on here? The following table shows most field types. You do not need to add a comma to the last attribute, since the closing brace will tell BibTeX that there are no more attributes for this entry, although you won't get an error if you do. Now that LaTeX and BibTeX know where to look for the appropriate files, actually citing the references is fairly trivial. Or in those huge, online bibliography databases, you often find BibTeX versions of publications, so it's a quick cut-and-paste into your own.
Hi Tom, I just did that and it worked perfectly! This page was last edited on 17 November , at January at 7: It may be worth bookmarking or printing these pages so that they are easily at hand when you need them.
