LaTeX & BibTeX Resources

This guide highlights resources to use to learn about LaTeX and create documents using it. It is especially helpful with papers containing mathematical expressions.

from ASCE Digital Library

Select the article title that you are interested. Select the tools hyperlink, then Download Citation. Select BibTeX from the Format combo box or dropdown. Select the Download button.

from ASME Digital Collection

Citations can be exported from any Article or Conference Paper Details screen using the Cite hyperlink. Select the BibTeX hyperlink from the popup screen.

from EBSCO Databases

The easiest way to collect citations from an EBSCO database is to use the Folder View screen. Place publications in your folder using the folder icon.

When you are finished, go to Folder View screen, select records to export and press the Export button.

Next, select the radio button beside Citations in BibTeX format in the Save citations to a file formatted for: section, then press the Export button.

Radio button choices when export from EBSCO
  • Save citations to a file formatted for:
  • Direct Export in RIS Format (e.g. CITAVI, EasyBib, EndNote, ProCite, Reference Manager, Zotero)
  • Direct Export to EndNote Web
  • Generic bibliographic management software
  • Citations in XML format
  • Citations in BibTeX format shown checked
  • Citations in MARC21 format
  • Direct Export to RefWorks

End of Radio button choices when export from EBSCO

Some examples of databases that use the EBSCO interface are:

from IEEE Xplore

Select the items from the results list, then select the Export dropdown menu, then select the Citations tab. Select the radio button beside BibTeX, then select the Export button.

from SciFinder-n

Selected citations can be exported in RIS format from any Search Results screen using the Download Results button. In the File Type section, select Citation (.ris) from the combo box or dropdown.

RIS can be converted to BibTeX format automatically if you are using JabRef. If you use Mendeley or Zotero, you can create a .bib database automatically. Zotero requires the Better BibTeX extension.

from Web of Science

Selected citations can be exported in BibTeX format from any Search Results Screen by selecting Export, then BibTeX from the dropdown menu.

BibTeX is an option when using Web of Science only. When searching all the databases in Web of Knowledge, BibTeX is not an option. Citations can be exported from the Marked List screen as well.
