Citations in HandWiki

BibTeX citations

Unlike Wikipedia, HandWiki handles citations from BibTeX files. This is a very important feature for researches since HandWiki articles can be converted to actual papers for journals or books using LaTeX. This is explained in Section conversion to LaTeX.

You can use citation keys from the Citation Manager. Here is an example where we cite the article two times using the key dong05bordereps:

This is an article from a BibTex file <refbib>dong05bordereps</refbib>. 
You can cite it again using the same key <ref name=dong05bordereps/>

This produces this sentence:

This is an article from a BibTex file [1]. You can cite it again using the same key s [1]

You can find all BibTeX citations and the keys in HandWiki BibTeX manager. In order to insert an article or book entry to the BibTeX manager, first, you should prepare a BibTeX file (with the extension "bib"). To create citation entries inside Citation Database, you will need to upload a BibTeX file with your references. This can be done by registered HandWiki users from the upload BibTeX file page.

Note that you can cite multiple articles using a comma to separate the keys. Here is the sentence that cites several articles

Example articles that use BibTeX files <refbib>Aad:2010af,Belov:2007qg</refbib>.

This sentence looks like this: "Example articles that use BibTeX files [2] [3]". As you can see, we can group citation into the single "refbib" tag.

If you will use the LaTeX Export command from the top-right menu, you will see that the citations of this section will be converted correctly into the LaTeX.

You can also use the internal Mediawiki citations as described below. However, they cannot be converted correctly to the LaTeX text.

Wiki-style citations

HandWiki uses the standard Mediawiki/Wikipedia styles for references. For example, to make this [4] citation, program it as:

<ref>
This is my first Mediawiki citation
</ref>

Or you can use this style [5], so you can repeat it again [5]. Such repetitions in references looks should be coded as:

Or you can use this style <ref name=test>Repeated citation</ref>, 
so you can repeat it again  later as  <ref name=test/>.

Citations can be quite complex. This is how you can reference web resource [6]

<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.gap-system.org/Download/copyright.html |
title=GAP Copyright |date=2012-06-14 |accessdate=2015-02-26}}</ref>

And this is how to cite a journal article McCullough, B. D. (1999). "Econometric software". Journal of Applied Econometrics 14 (2): 191–202. doi:10.1002/(SICI)1099-1255). 

<ref>{{Cite journal |first=B. D. |last=McCullough | title=Econometric software  |
journal=<wipe>Journal of Applied Econometrics</wipe> |year=1999 |volume=14 |
issue=2 |pages=191–202 |doi=10.1002/(SICI)1099-1255</ref>

Here is an example of a book reference [7]

<ref>{{Cite book |first=B. D. |last=McCullough | title=Econometric software  |
year=1999 |volume=14 |issue=2 |pages=191–202 |doi=10.1002/(SICI)1099-1255</ref>

Here is how to cite news [8]

<ref>{{Cite news|url=https://www.schoolofmotion.com/blog/|
title=Why I Use Affinity Designer |
work=School of Motion|access-date=2018-08-06}}</ref>

You can also cite an arXiv article [9]

<ref>
{{Cite arXiv |last=Leinster |first=Tom |date=2007 |
title=The Euler characteristic of a category |
eprint=0707.0835 |class=math.CT}}
