Here are the files that we made during the (original) session:

# ​​Reference Management

• Refresher: LaTeX lets you concentrate on the content and not worry (too much) about the formatting
• The same idea applies to your bibliography
• Specify the complete information for all your references once
• Then use that information repeatedly anywhere in your document

• 2 ways:
• In the .tex file with your text (not recommended)
• In a separate .bib (BibTeX) file (recommended)

BibTeX files contain entries
​​@ARTICLE{chomsky1959,
​​  author = {Noam Chomsky},
​​  title = {On Certain Formal Properties of Grammars},
​​  journal = {Information and Control},
​​  year = {1959},
​​  volume = {2},
​​  pages = {137--167},
​​}
• Entry type: @ARTICLE
• Other common ones include @book and @inproceedings
• Not case sensitive
• Citekey: chomsky1959
• Anything you want, as long as it is unique to a reference in a particular BibTeX file
• This is what you will use to cite this reference in your document
• Fields: title = {On Certain Formal Properties of Grammars},
• fieldname = {content},
• Different entry types have different required and compatible fields!
• Note: --  creates an en-dash “–”, which is longer than a hyphen “-”

• \usepackage{natbib}
• Option authoryear gives you the “Chomsky (1959)” citation style
• Specify the location of your .bib file: \bibliography{myreferences}
• No need to have .bib in the command
• .bib file can be in a different place! \bibliography{../../LaTeXStorage/myreferences}
• Put this command wherever you want the bibliography to show up in your document (usually the end)
• Specify a bibliography style: \bibliographystyle{chicagoa}
• The natbib documentation should have a list of some of the default available ones
• Cite: \citet{chomsky1959} = “Chomsky (1959)”
• natbib has a number of different ways of citing
• \citep{chomsky1959}  = “(Chomsky 1959)”
• \citealt{chomsky1959}  = “Chomsky 1959”
• You can also have several citekeys in one command: \citep{chomsky1959,ref2}
• See the documentation for more!
