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 works-cited page in MLA style?

Modern Language Association (MLA) style is a styling manual for scientific publications to make them more readable and consistent; the most current edition is the 9th edition of the MLA Handbook. MLA styling involves in-text citations between brackets as well as creating a page for the bibliography with the heading “Works Cited.” MLA styling also involves using 12 pt font, double spacing, one-inch margins, first-line indents, as well as page numbers.
