Notes on usage with bibliographic software

The following notes are designed to help you to load the information you download from our Electronic Journals service into bibliographic software packages.


Add the downloaded "bib" file to your BibTeX database. BibTeX can then extract a "bbl" file for articles cited in a LaTeX document containing a "\bibliography" command. When LaTeX is then rerun twice the "bbl" file is used to generate the reference list. Note: abstracts containing maths and special characters may need some editing.
