I am using BibTex, and have created a citation: \cite{referenceName}. This produces a little number, e.g. [1].

How do I make the [1] clickable, so that it references me to the location of the BibTex citation?


You can start with \usepackage[pagebackref=true]{hyperref} and dig the other options.

The reference is \cite{Pirayre_A_2015_j-bmc-bioinformatics_brane_cbrapnegcgrni}.


A.~Pirayre, C.~Couprie, F.~Bidard, L.~Duval, and J.-C. Pesquet.
\newblock {BRANE} {C}ut: biologically-related a priori network enhancement with
  graph cuts for gene regulatory network inference.
\newblock {\em BMC Bioinformatics}, 16(1):369, Dec. 2015.

  • Why are you using a bibliography done by hand? And why do you have a \bibliographystye in there? – Johannes_B May 10 '16 at 8:09
  • @Johannes_B I use .bib files, but included the content of the .bbl file to provide a working example. Suggestions welcome – Laurent Duval May 10 '16 at 8:14

    Use the filecontents package to create the .bib file on the fly at compiling time. – Bernard May 10 '16 at 8:53
