For La Te X users we strongly recommend to prepare references with Bib Te X.
If references are prepared manually, the authors should check them for completeness and correctness.
The problem can be subdivided into several parts: store of the reference information, later retrieval of this information while preparing the document, and presentation (formatting) of the reference information in the document and in the bibliography according to a particular format.
A widely-used approach to deal with references in La Te X documents is to employ Bib Te X reference management software.
For example: package, which is one of the most notable packages I have used with La Te X.
The package provides a highly customizable interface for the creation and edit of the presentation of bibliographic data in the document.If you don't want a particular bit, just put \documentclass[11pt,final] \title \author \date \begin \maketitle \tableofcontents \chapter In our previous work\cite we showed how to compute the electronic properties of transition metal surfaces.This is Bib Te X, Version 0.99d (Te X Live 2017) The top-level auxiliary file: A level-1 auxiliary file: Chapters/Chapter1A level-1 auxiliary file: Chapters/Chapter2A level-1 auxiliary file: Chapters/Chapter3A level-1 auxiliary file: Chapters/Chapter4A level-1 auxiliary file: Appendices/Appendix I found no \citation commands---while reading file I found no \bibdata command---while reading file I found no \bibstyle command---while reading file (There were 3 error messages) will be used to process the bibliography database.In Bib Te X reference information is stored in format-independent plain text file(s) (usually with command, and later at the document compilation step La Te X input files must be processed with La Te X and Bib Te X.The most popular approaches to indicate a reference appearing in the text can be classified as "numeric" and "author–year".It consists of a numbered list of the sources used or consulted in writing the thesis in the order that they are referenced in the text.There can be either one List of References for the entire thesis, or a List of References at the end of each chapter.You have to cghange it in the preferences of your editor.is a tool that helps you to collect, organize and cite your references.
