I am new to latex and I want to cite some papers. I have

    Author = {Girshick, Ross and Donahue, Jeff and Darrell, Trevor and Malik, Jitendra},
    Title = {Rich feature hierarchies for accurate object detection and semantic segmentation},
    Booktitle = {Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition},
    Year = {2014}

But I am not sure where to copy paste it. Anyone have any templates ? I tried to search through google.

I assume you already know some LaTeX basics. In the small example below I use the popular and powerful package BibLaTeX.

Put the bibliography entry you gave into a separate file (in the example I call it ref.bib. Then you can add a citation using the \cite{}command. That also adds the relevant reference to the document if you use the \printbibliography command. The option heading=bibintocadds reference list to table of contents.


Some text and a citation \cite{girshick14CVPR}.


As you can see, you can use the key girshick14CVPR to refer to that particular entry. You can change the key as you wish. You can also add additional information to @inproceedings entry, like conference location, date etc. See BibLaTeX documentation (below) for more info about possible fields.

For more information, please read:


And BibLaTeX documentation:
