# \documentclass{book} + natbib [closed]

I'm using `\documentclass{book}` and trying to get the `natbib` package generate the bibliography.

I have a root file, say, `root.tex` and different chapters are included using `\include{}`. I'm having problems in getting the bibliography to work.

I have the following commands in my root.tex file:

``````\bibliographystyle{plainnat}
\bibliography{mybib}
``````

Any suggestion/solution will be much appreciated!

Welcome to TeX.sx! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. –  Joseph Wright Dec 11 '11 at 17:02
To ask the perhaps stupid questions: do you have any `cite` commands in your text, and do you run `pdflatex` - `bibtex` - `pdflatex` - `pdflatex`? –  Torbjørn T. Dec 11 '11 at 17:06
Besides adding a MWE, as Joseph has suggested, please describe the problems that you are having. –  Gonzalo Medina Dec 11 '11 at 17:06
Other stupid question : do you ask latex to print your bibliography? It seems that you are just telling it to build one, perhaps not to display it. On a side note, what is your point using natbib? I suggest you to use biblatex, which is, in my opinion, much more flexible and powerful. –  Martigan Dec 15 '11 at 9:40
@Martigan `\bibliography{mybib}` prints the bibliography of cited works. –  Torbjørn T. Dec 17 '11 at 20:59
