I've been struggling to slowly add references with bibtex to my documents. I created this MWE:







And here is the .bib file's contents:

author    = "BOULOS, Paulo",
title     = "C\'{a}lculo Diferencial e Integral",
publisher = "Pearson Makron Books",
volume   = "1",
address  = "S\~{a}o Paulo",
edition  = "1",
year      = "1999",
note     = "380 p",

author    = "LAWSON, Terry",
title     = "\'{A}lgebra Linear",
publisher = "Edgard Bl{\"u}cher ltda",  
address  = "S\~{a}o Paulo",
edition  = "1",
year      = "1996",
note     = "348 p",

This produces, in the references section: Notice the subitems below the second reference

How to get rid of those subitem looking things below?

    Those are your citations! Did you perhaps want \nocite{Boulos, Lawson}? – Joseph Wright Nov 23 '15 at 15:04
  • You are right! I was confused because it produced the reference and the citation at the same time! Is it possible that the citation's text uses the author's name instead of numbers? Like "[Boulos]" instead of "[1]"? – Guilherme Vargas Nov 23 '15 at 15:09
  • this is done by the bibliographystyle and maybe an extra package. – Johannes_B Nov 23 '15 at 15:12

    But if you really are just starting, i think biblatex would be the better thing to start with. – Johannes_B Nov 23 '15 at 15:12

Those are from your citations: they have to correspond to a bibliography somewhere.

  • My apologies for forgetting to accept the answer a long time ago! Adjusted it now! – Guilherme Vargas Aug 29 '16 at 15:56
