This question already has an answer here:

When i'm trying to execute this code:

\documentclass[a4paper, 12pt]{article}


    journal={J. Phys. Conf. Ser.},

\title{Autumn Term Report}

HI \cite{paper}


I get the following:

I can not understand why my BibTex does not work. I'm using TeXstudio and tried to execute that by XeLaTeX and PdfLaTeX compilers.

Thanks in advance!

  • Did you explicitly run bibtex? In addition to pdflatex/xelatex – Dai Bowen Nov 2 '17 at 21:43

  • @DaiBowen, no, i just put this line in the settings of IDE. – Alexander Zolkin Nov 2 '17 at 21:48

    Bibtex is a separate tool which must be run independently to latex . In order to get citations working it is necessary to run (pdf/xe)latex bibtex (pdf/xe)latex (pdf/xe)latex – Dai Bowen Nov 2 '17 at 21:50
  • This sequence of commands described by DaiBowen is probably set in TeXStudio's "Build & View" command. But they can also be independently accessed through the "Tools" menu. – gusbrs Nov 2 '17 at 21:53

Thanks to you all, i just did not used to compile bibliography separately. F8 before compilation is helped (or Tools->Bibliography).
