I am trying to add in a .bib file created by BibDesk to my report. I have saved the .bib file in a different folder. However, it will not import in the typeset.

I tried to follow the Overleaf instructions but when that didn't work, I tried using natbib.

In the preamble, I have included:


In the body, I have added in:


But when I typeset it, my TOC does not come up with the section and the bibliography does not print after the conclusion and before the Appendices.

I would like to also know how to style the bibliography in the Harvard way.

Many thanks in advance for your suggestions.


  • \usepackage{cite} and \usepackage{natbib} are both incompatible with biblatex. But you use \addbibresource and \printbibliography, which are biblatex commands. It is not clear from the snippets whether you load biblatex.
