**What is BibTex?**

BibTex is a tool and a file format which are used to describe and process lists of references, mostly in conjunction with LaTeX documents.

- BibTex stores all references in a plain text database external to a LaTex document.
- References in a BibTex database can be cited in a LaTex document
- Bibliography can be created in many styles
- BibTex files have a file extension
**.bib**

**More information about BibTex **can be found: http://www.bibtex.org
