I want to cite this paper but I don't know how since this is an online source. I don't know which command to use and how can I have urldate?

Burnside, C., Eichenbaum, M., & Rebelo, S. (2007): „Currency crisis models.” Retrieved from https://www.kellogg.northwestern.edu/faculty/rebelo/htm/currency%20crisis%20models%20Ed.pdf

  • If and how a url access date is shown is up to the bibliography style (and package) you use. Can you show us a short example document and the .bib entry for this reference so that we can be sure which style you use? (See tex.meta.stackexchange.com/q/228/35864, tex.meta.stackexchange.com/q/4407/35864.) (The question is tagged apacite and the reference looks very APA-y, but I'd like to be sure to avoid sending you off on a wild goose chase.)

1 Answer 1


There are a lot of entries in Google Scholar associated to this ref.

However, the following seems to be the preferred one:

  title={Currency crises models},
  author={Burnside, Craig and Eichenbaum, Martin and Rebelo, Sergio},
  journal={The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics: Volume 1--8},

It does not seem to be only an online document, but also a journal article. You can add a note for the URL and accessed date :

note={Accessed on 2019-11-05, \url{https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/66dc/07b6298a4fbc7a2a969226b00d43c324aaba.pdf}}

Warning 1: don't forget to add a coma after {Springer},

Warning 2: the use of \url requires package url.

Finally, you can cite this article using the command \cite{burnside2008currency}.

EDIT full procedure to get bibtex from Google Scholar:

Clicking on the citations' number will bring you to the papers citing this research.

enter image description here Clicking on the name of the paper at the top of the page will bring you to the steps described in 1.

Note that there are plenty of softwares/add-ons to facilitate bibtex importation, such as Zotero to name just one.

  • How did you get this? Is there any website to get bibtex from url - besides google scholar?
