About BibTeX

BibTeX has been widely in use since its introduction by Oren Patashnik 20 years ago. As the name suggests, it was intended to be used in combination with the typesetting system LaTeX, but it has become possible, for instance, to include BibTeX-bibliographies even in Word-Documents using third-party tools.

BibTeX utilizes a plain-text file-format which can be created and modified using an arbitrary text-editor by the user. There are tools in existence which provide a more convenient UI.
