BibTeX and LaTeX in TeXShop OS X

  1. create a file (e.g. cites.bib) that will contain the cites
  2. create a cite in cites.bib (you may use http://www.interaction-design.org/citation-maker/ as the simple solution)
    e.g.

    @misc{bibAndTex,
      AUTHOR = {cb0},
      TITLE = {BibTeX and LaTeX in TeXShop OS X},
      PUBLISHER = {cb0},
      ADDRESS = {Leipzig},
      YEAR = {2009},
    URL = {http://0xcb0.wordpress.com},
    note = {This is an electronic document. http://0xcb0.wordpress.com
               Date retrieved: Feburay 22, 2009. Date last modified: Feburay 22, 2009},
    url = {http://0xcb0.wordpress.com},
    }
  3. Insert the following 2 lines at the desired place of your bibliography
    \bibliography{cites}{}
    \bibliographystyle{plain}

    cite is the reference to the created cites.bib

  4. cite it somewhere
    \cite[see cb0's Blog]{bibAndTex}
  5. Save all changes
  6. set Latex
    bild-1
  7. set BibTeX
    setbib
    output should start with sth. like this
    bild-3
  8. 2 times step 6 for correct numbering of all cites
  9. look at the results
    citeintext
    the cite in the text

    bibliography
    the cite in the bibliography
  10. enjoy
