Frequently Asked Questions about our bibliographic format converter

What is a BibTeX file?

A BibTeX file contains bibliographic data in BibTeX format and usually has the file extension *.bib. A BibTeX file can be viewed and edited using plain text editors, and many reference management programs support both the import and export of files in BibTeX format.

What is a reference list in Harvard style?

Harvard citation style involves parenthetical in-text citations that should include the author and year of publication. If there is a referral to a specific section in the original text, the page number might be added as well. Entries in the reference list are arranged in alphabetical order and positioned at the very last page of the document. In the event that the author's name is missing, entries are arranged by title of work.
