I am using TexMaker. I would like to know how to include web site references in the .bib file. I am using bibliography style , alpha. How does the website reference appear in the bibliography

Assuming your .bib file contains url fields: Use the alphaurl style instead of alpha.




  author = {Author, A.},
  year = {2001},
  title = {Alpha},
  url = {www.tex.stackexchange.com},





(The filecontents environment is only used to include some external files directly into the example, so that it compiles. It is not necessary for the solution.)

IMVHO the "right" way to cite a webpage (until the Powers That Be add a proper bibliography entry type, that is ;-) is to use the @Misc type, and place the URL in howpublished.
