# Biblatex bibilographic data in the main file

I have been using Bibtex. When I send a source file to a journal I always put the bbl file into it. I am looking into Biblatex and it looks like that will not work. Is there a way to get bibliographic data into the main LaTeX file with Biblatex, or do you have to send separate files? Would the answer change if I used Biber with it?

This may not be quite the answer you wanted, but you can do the following:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{biblatex}
\usepackage{filecontents}

\begin{filecontents}{aFileName.bib}
<contents of bibliography file>
\end{filecontents}


The file aFileName.bib will be created during compilation and left in the working folder.
