The types of entries and fields used in virtually all Bib Te X styles Bib Te X are listed below.
A Bib Te X database can contain the following types of entries: A hidden field used for specifying or overriding the alphabetical order of entries (when the "author" and "editor" fields are missing).
The way La Te X deals with this is by specifying file, format text in italics, add punctuation, etc.
Since the same style file is used for an entire list of references, these are all formatted consistently with minimal effort required from authors or editors.
Note that this is very different from the key (mentioned just after this list) that is used to cite or cross-reference the entry.
In addition, each entry contains a key (Bibtexkey) that is used to cite or cross-reference the entry.
This key is the first item in a Bib Te X entry, and is not part of any field.
Bib Te X formats bibliographic items according to a style file, typically by generating Te X or La Te X formatting commands.
Jab Ref is one of the best reference managers available and provides a realistic alternative to Endnote, as well as being open-source & free.
Unfortunately most users are not aware that Jab Ref (or any other Bib Te X based reference manager) can easily be integrated for use with Microsoft Word.
