Creating a bibliography is made easy in LaTeX through the use of packages such as bibtex, biber, natbib and biblatex which allow the automatic generation of the reference list in the chosen style (e.g. in that required by the academic journal you’re submitting your article to). Here we present some example documents to help you see how to set up a bibliography in LaTeX to achieve the reference and citation style required.
This is a skeleton file demonstrating the use of the IEEEtran.cls style with a one-column IEEE journal paper, and with example bibliography files included. (Please refer to your journal's instructions for other document class options to set before submitting.)
These bibliography files are includes to provide one example of how to set up a bibliography for your IEEE paper.
For more information on using bibtex for references in your IEEE journal papers, see this FAQ.
IEEEtran.cls version: 1.8b
The natbib package provides automatic numbering, sorting and formatting of in text citations and bibliographic references in LaTeX. It supports both numeric and author-year citation styles.
The natbib package is the most commonly used package for handling references in LaTeX, and it is very functional, but the more modern biblatex package is also worth a look.
This is a skeleton file to create IEEE style Bibliography list. There is a guide added "create-manual-bib-entry.txt" to manually create popular types of references such as PhD thesis, website, unpublished work etc.

An “unofficial”, not-so-plain thesis template for Imperial College London that meets the list of submission requirements. Each chapter has its own reference section, which is populated exclusively with the citations from that chapter.
This example shows how to automatically generate citations and a bibliography with biblatex and biber.
Biblatex and biber work together to automatically format references and citations like the older cite or natbib and bibtex tool chain, but they offer more powerful and easier to use formatting and better support for special characters (unicode).
For a full list of biblatex styles, see the user guide in the biblatex manual.
An example template of how to create a dissertation style for UWE Bristol (BSc Mathematics/Mathematics and Statistics programme) with margins compatible with MS Word templates (so correct for page limit rules).
This also allows you to separate out References and Bibliography entries.
