BibTeX FAQ

CiteDrive, a tool for managing and collecting BibTeX entries and citations, is currently developing an extension for Obsidian,  a note-taking app with a unique approach to note-taking. It allows users to quickly link and connect their ideas, increasing productivity when writing papers, and we recognize the importance of researchers during the authoring phase. CiteDrive will also expand Markdown support, as it already does for Jupyter Notebook, Quarto, and R Markdown, to help researchers organize and access their references in apps like Obsidian.

What exactly is Obsidian?

Obsidian is a cross-platform application that allows you to quickly and efficiently organize and connect your thoughts and ideas -- all in markdown. It comes with a complete set of tools for creating notes, diagrams, graphs, documents, and other types of content. The app connects related markdown files novelly, making it simple to connect ideas, explore new paths, and quickly expand on topics.

It's an excellent tool for creating knowledge maps from scratch or from previously taken notes.

Obsidian was designed to be a personal knowledge base, but it works well in collaborative projects. With CiteDrive's support for Obsidian, you'll get the best of both worlds: a powerful research tool and an efficient knowledge base. Stay tuned for more information!

What is CiteDrive, and what is it used for?

CiteDrive is a cutting-edge cloud-based research tool that revolutionizes the storage and organization of bibliographic data. This app lets you securely store and access your BibTeX entries from anywhere, at any time, while staying in sync with tools like Overleaf and RStudio. Organize your global master.bib file references and teams into projects to make collaboration with other researchers, students, and teachers easier and to keep everyone on the same page. We cordially invite you to take advantage of CiteDrive's first-rate services immediately!

Do you need to format citations and a bibliography for a research paper in RStudio? Are you struggling to keep track of all your references and formatting requirements? Have no fear! CiteDrive and Quarto can help. This blog post will show you how to use both tools to create beautiful, correctly formatted citations and bibliographies.

Get started

To format citations and bibliographies in RStudio with CiteDrive and Quarto, follow these steps:

Step 1: Include references in your project

First, you must create a CiteDrive account by going to their website and selecting the 'Sign Up' button. Completing your account will then enable you to make an 'R-Markdown' (it works for Quarto, don't you worry) project; simply name it and fill the project with references. Yours might look something like this:

CiteDrive - Example

Step 2: Connect your Quarto document to CiteDrive

Now, let's connect your new CiteDrive to your Quarto document. To do this, click the 'bib' button. This will open up a new tab with all your entries in BibTeX format. Copy the URL from the new tab and paste it into the YAML part of your QMD file.

The following clip shows the flow when using R Markdown. However, the principle of Quarto is the same:

Step 3: Copy the citation keys.

Once your references are imported, you can insert them into your Quarto document. To do this, return to your CiteDrive project and one or more references your want to insert into your document and click the cite button. CiteDrive will copy the citation key to your clipboard.

CiteDrive - Example

Paste your citation key in the necessary passage of your Quarto document.

CiteDrive - Paste citationkey

After you insert the key in the section, click “render.” The citation will be outputted in your desired style, and the reference will appear at the end of your document.

That's all! CiteDrive is the perfect tool to help you manage your bibliography and insert citations into Quarto documents. Test it out now and see how much time it can save you!
