This question already has an answer here:

I'm writing my thesis in texshop, using Bibdesk as bib library. The problem I'm having is; I can't import all references into my thesis. there are 50 items and I can see only 30 of them.

I'll be glad for any help.

    (1) Welcome. (2) Bibdesk is a manager programme for BibTeX files. It does not decide which items are used in your document. Bibtex only takes the items from the .bib file that are actually cited in the document. Did you cite all 50? If you just want to list all items from the .bib file, the add \nocite{*} to your document, and run latex, bibtex, latex, latex (or pdflatex ir that is what you use) – daleif Mar 13 '15 at 8:17
