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:


   <contents of bibliography file>


   <contents of document>

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

There may be other methods for solving this though.
