Im using Spanish babel and I need to do an apa style bibliography in Spanish but when I use apa style bibliography it just shows the word referencias (references) but doesn't show the references I have written on a .bib file. I appreciate any help.

Welcome to TeX.sx! Are you compiling with pdflatex, biber, pdflatex, pdflatex? –  doncherry Nov 26 '12 at 3:24

Welcome to TeX.sx! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It is considered a lot better to put in some code that will compile, as it makes it a lot easier for us to copy it into our text editor and work with it, and see exactly what it is you are trying to do. –  Kurt Nov 26 '12 at 3:24

With BibLaTeX, there is a biblatex-apa style which works out of the box.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[spanish]{babel}
\usepackage{csquotes}
\usepackage[style=apa]{biblatex}
\DeclareLanguageMapping{spanish}{spanish-apa}
\addbibresource{mybibliography.bib}
\begin{document}
\nocite{*}
\printbibliography
\end{document}

Run pdflatex + biber + pdflatex

The easiest way I have found to put apa like bibliography in spanish is by using the apacite package.

I use something like:

\documentclass{book}

\usepackage[spanish]{babel}
\usepackage[natbibapa]{apacite}

\begin{document}

\bibliographystyle{apacite}
\bibliography{mybibfile}
\end{document}

and compile pdflatex + bibtex + pdflatex

By default in the bibliography only appear the references that are cited in the text. If you want there the entire list of references you must add \nocite{*}:

\documentclass{book}

\usepackage[spanish]{babel}
\usepackage[natbibapa]{apacite}

\begin{document}

\nocite{*}
\bibliographystyle{apacite}
\bibliography{mybibfile}
\end{document}
