What is LaTeX?
LaTeX is a typesetting program that takes a plain
text file with various commands in it and converts
it to a formatted document based on the
commands that it has been given. The source file
for the document has a file extension of .tex. It is
widely used at MIT for theses and other technical
papers due to its prowess with mathematical and
foreign characters. For more information on
LaTeX, see LaTeX on Athena Basics, provided by
the Athena On-Line Help system.
What is BibTeX?
BibTex is a bibliographic tool that is used with
LaTeX to help organize the user's references
and create a bibliography. A BibTex user
creates a bibliography file that is separate
from the LaTeX source file, wth a file extension
of .bib. Each reference in the bibliography file
is formatted with a certain structure and is
given a "key" by which the author can refer to
it in the source file. For more information on
BibTeX, see see MIT IS&T's page: How do I
Create Bibliographies in LaTeX.
How do I export from EndNote to BibTeX?
Open EndNote, and open the library of
references that you would like to export
to BibTeX. In the drop-down menu in the
toolbar at the top of the screen, click
"Select Another Style..." and in the list
that appears, chose BibTeX Export. Now
you should see the BibTeX-formatted
citation in the preview screen.
