How to use BibTeX

Create your BibTex-File

Just create a plain text file and apply what has been explained in section BibTeX File Format.


@misc{ Nobody06,
       author = "Nobody Jr",
       title = "My Article",
       year = "2006" }

Create your LaTeX-File



\title{My Article}
\author{Nobody Jr.}

Blablabla said Nobody ~\cite{Nobody06}.



Most LaTeX Editors make using BibTeX even easier than it already is. In case you want to process myarticle.tex on the command line just do this:

$ latex myarticle
$ bibtex myarticle
$ latex myarticle
$ latex myarticle

Using BibTeX with MS Word

It is possible to use BibTeX outside of a LaTeX-Environment, namely MS Word using the tool Bibshare. See the collection of BibTex Links.
