BibTeX FAQ

LaTeX is a powerful typesetting system that is widely used in the academic and scientific communities for creating technical and scientific documents. It uses a markup language to add formatting to text, such as bold, italics, and mathematical symbols. In this post, we will give you a quick overview of what LaTeX is, how to get started with it, and how to make your document creation process even smoother with Overleaf and CiteDrive.

What is LaTeX?

LaTeX is a powerful typesetting system that is used to create professional-looking documents. It is particularly useful for creating technical and scientific documents, such as research papers and theses, as it includes features for creating complex layouts, such as tables and figures.

Getting Started with LaTeX and Overleaf

To get started with LaTeX, you will need a LaTeX distribution, such as TeX Live or MikTeX, and a text editor, such as TeXworks or Sublime Text. But why settle for just a text editor when you can use Overleaf, the cloud-based LaTeX editor that makes it easy to create, edit, and collaborate on your LaTeX documents. With Overleaf, you can access your documents from any device, share your work with others, and even collaborate on the same document in real-time.

Once you have Overleaf and LaTeX distribution, you can begin creating your document. The process of creating a document in LaTeX is simple. First, you will write the text and formatting commands in a .tex file. Then, you will use the LaTeX distribution to create a typeset version of the document, usually in the form of a PDF.

Here is a simple example of a LaTeX document:

\documentclass{article} 
\begin{document} Hello, this is a simple LaTeX document.
\end{document}

This is a basic structure of a LaTeX document and it's the starting point of any LaTeX document.

Make your document creation process smoother with CiteDrive

With CiteDrive, you can easily import and organize your references, automatically generate citations in your document, and even collaborate with others on your reference list. Say goodbye to the hassle of managing your references manually, and hello to a more streamlined document creation process with CiteDrive.

Conclusion

LaTeX is a powerful typesetting system that is widely used in the academic and scientific communities. It is easy to learn and use, and it allows you to create professional-looking documents with complex layouts. With Overleaf, you can access your documents from any device, share your work with others, and even collaborate on the same document in real-time. And with CiteDrive, you can easily import and organize your references, automatically generate citations in your document, and even collaborate with others on your reference list.

BibTeX FAQ

Citations are an important aspect of academic writing, as they allow authors to give credit to the sources they have used in their work. In this post, we will discuss how to use citations in Overleaf, a popular online LaTeX editor, with BibTeX, a tool for managing bibliographic references.

Adding a bibliography to your Overleaf project

The first step in using citations in Overleaf is to add a bibliography to your project. This can be done by creating a new file in your project and naming it references.bib. This file will contain all of the references that you wish to cite in your document. An alternative option is to use CiteDrive which connects to Overleaf and allows you to collaborate on your bibliography and citations. CiteDrive supports BibTeX natively and also Biblatex.

To add a reference to this file, you can use the following format:

@article{key, author = {Author, A.}, title = {Title}, journal = {Journal}, year = {Year}, }

The key is a unique identifier for the reference and will be used to cite it in your document. The author, title, journal, and year fields are required for a basic reference, but there are many other fields that can be included as well.

Citing references in your document

Once you have added your references to the references.bib file, you can cite them in your document using the cite command. For example, to cite the reference with the key key, you would use the following command:

\cite{key}

This will insert the citation into your document in the format specified by the bibliography style you have chosen.

Formatting your bibliography

In order to format your bibliography, you need to specify a bibliography style. This can be done by including the following command in the preamble of your document:

\bibliographystyle{style}

Where style is the name of the bibliography style you wish to use. Some commonly used styles include plain, unsrt, and apalike.

Finally, you need to include the following command at the end of your document to generate the bibliography:

\bibliography{references}

Where references is the name of your bibliography file (references.bib in our example).

Conclusion

In this post, we have discussed how to use citations in Overleaf with BibTeX. By following the steps outlined above, you can easily add references to your project, cite them in your document, and format your bibliography to meet the requirements of your academic institution or publisher. Additionally, the use of CiteDrive, which connects to Overleaf, allows for easy collaboration on your references and citations. CiteDrive natively supports both BibTeX and Biblatex making it a versatile option for managing your bibliographic references.
