# Bibliography not appearing in PDF viewer [duplicate]

I have just started using LaTeX and have made a practice document where I am trying to add a reference list and it is not appearing in the PDF viewer. Here is the simple code I have

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{apacite}

\begin{document}

\section{introduction}
Hello there

\nocite{*}
\bibliographystyle{apacite}

\bibliography{conttimeReferences}

\end{document}


Would be grateful for any tips - also keep in mind I am a beginner and my understanding is very limited.

• Do you use \cite{however you named an item in your bib file} in your document? – user36296 Oct 6 '17 at 13:59
• How do you compile? Did you use bibtex? Is conttimeReferences.bib in the same folder as your .tex file? – user36296 Oct 6 '17 at 14:04
