Bibliography style is used widely in literature, history, and the arts. This style presents bibliographic information in footnotes or endnotes and, usually, a bibliography.Creating an annotated bibliography calls for the application of a variety of intellectual skills: concise exposition, succinct analysis, and informed library research.The more concise author-date style has long been used in the physical, natural, and social sciences. In this system, sources are briefly cited in parentheses in the text by author’s last name and date of publication. The parenthetical citations are amplified in a list of references, where full bibliographic information is provided.You can also use a bibliographystyle and another for citations. In this case use the ibliographystylejust before the including the bibliography fileMuch like the Table of Contents builder in Word, you can select a predesigned bibliography format that includes a title or you can just click Insert Bibliography to add the citation without a title.

This style presents bibliographic information in notes and, often, a bibliography. It accommodates a variety of sources, including esoteric ones less appropriate to the author-date system.The entry tells LaTeX the name of the bibtex database containing thebibliographic information. The argument in braces should be the nameof the bibtex file, but without the extension. The above example assumes there is a file in the current directory. Note that this file can contain many morerecords than are needed for the particular paper. This allows one to keep all records in a single personal bibtex database; it alsomakes it possible to share bibtex databases, and to compile largedatabases of bibtex records in a particular field and make thoseavailable for anyone to use. Assume you have a paper, called , along with abibtex database, , which has beenloaded in the paper as shown above. To completely process the paper execute the following commands, in sequence:The first run (through latex) generates an auxiliary file, , containing information about citations (andother types of references), the bibliography style used, and the nameof the bibtex database. The second run (through bibtex) uses theinformation in the auxiliary file, along with the data contained in thebibtex database, to create a file . This file contains a environment with entries formatted according to the bibliography style specified.When you are writing your report, you will use the sources in your bibliography to remind you of different facts and background information you used for your science fair project. Each time you use some information from a source, you will need to cite the source that it came from. To cite a source, simply put the author's name and the date of the publication in parentheses (Author, date) in your text. If the person reading your report wants to find the information and read more about it, they can look up the reference in your bibliography for more detail about the source. That is why each source you use must be listed in a detailed bibliography with enough information for someone to go and find it by themselves.
