Questions tagged [citing]

{citing} is about specific or customized citation commands. For general questions about bibliographies and citations, use {bibliographies}, or preferably the tag for the bibliography packages and/or backend programs you use, e.g., {bibtex}, {natbib}, or {biblatex}. For using information from regular \label - statements, use {cross-referencing}.
