How do I add a bibliography to my document?

First of all you need to upload a .bib file via the files menu. Bib files can be exported from most reference management systems, or can be created manually.

Once your bibliography file has been uploaded, there are a number of bibliography packages which can be used to display the relevant entries in your document (as you cite them). As an example, we often use the natbib package, and the commands for natbib look like:

...
\usepackage{natbib}
...
\begin{document}
...
\bibliographystyle{plainnat}
\bibliography{name-of-your-bib-file-here}
\end{document}

You can also edit the bib file directly via the files menu. For additional information on adding a bibliography to your document, see Part 2 of our Intro to LaTeX course, or check out the LaTeX Wikibook.
