## bibtex BibTeX cheat sheet and entry templates ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ by at Wed Jul 29 15:42:08 CEST 2009

Based on information form

See also:

Nonstandard entries: url=, annote=, crossref=,

No url= field in standard types, should be put to note={URL \url{…}}.

There are no comments in BibTeX .bib files, not even %

?NAME= describes an optional field.

BibTeX silently ignores a field whose name it doesn’t know.
