I would like to use citing in my document. I have an *.bib file like this:

@misc{ Nobody06,
       author = "Nobody Jr",
       title = "My Article",
       year = "2006" }

My document is this:



\title{My Article}
\author{Nobody Jr.}

Blablabla said Nobody \cite{Nobody06}.


but I can't see this reference at the end of my document. How can I solve this problem?

    The \bibliographystyle command should precede \bibliography (remove also the empty {}). Did you run BibTeX? – egreg May 3 '14 at 14:23

    Are you running bibtex and then pdflatex (or latex) again? – Sigur May 3 '14 at 14:24

    @Sigurwhat should I do exactly? – Kaja May 3 '14 at 14:30
  • I'm almost sure that your editor has a button or menu which says BibTeX. Clique on it. – Sigur May 3 '14 at 14:32

    In order for the references to appear, you must first run pdfLatex, then BibTex, and then pdfLatex again. – cbento May 3 '14 at 14:37

A minor change is needed in your bib file:

@misc{ Nobody06,
       author = {Nobody Jr},
       title = {My Article},
       year = {2006}

For making pdf do the following commands:

pdflatex yourfile.tex
bibtex yourfile
padflatex yourfile

And the yourfile.pdf would be ready.
