I'm writing a paper and I would like to add some citations. I would like to put references (like [21]) in the text that, when clicked, point to the relevant link in the bibliography section at the end of the document.

EDIT: I'm trying to use bibtex. This is what I have, but I'm not seeing any bibliography.




\include{intro} % here's the ~\cite{Nobody06}




And b.bib:

@misc{ Nobody06,
       author = "Nobody Jr",
       title = "My Article",
       year = "2006" }
  • Your example works for me. The bibliography appears. Are you sure that you compiled it properly? – N.N. Jan 10 '12 at 13:15
  • Actually I did not. I didn't run the bibtex command from texmaker. This works now. – Jameson Jan 10 '12 at 13:20

If you use biblatex and its default citation style you get citations with numbers in square brackets. To load biblatex with default settings use \usepackage{biblatex}. You make a reference by using \cite (or one of the other citation commands mentioned in the manual). The reference/bibliography section is placed by \printbibliography.

To get clickable links you need to also load hyperref with \usepackage{hyperref}.

Here is an example:



    author  = {Donald E. Knuth},
    title   = {The {{\TeX}book}},
    publisher   = {Addison-Wesley},
    date    = {1984}






Output of example


I think you should use http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/BibTeX for formating your references and the \cite{} function to cite a reference. Then, using the hyperref package http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Hyperlinks everything should be ok.
