[OS X TeX] Using Bibdesk for a bibliography

Assuming your new to LaTeX and BiBTeX, here is the routine (if you're 
not, and your problem is due to something else, please excuse me for 
giving these elementary instructions):

1. your file should contain:
  - the command \bibliographystyle{**some style**} after the 
\begin{document} command [note that some styled required an additional 
.sty file to be included via \usepackage in order for the local 
references to come out right; others, such as the plain style, don't]
  - the command \bibliography{**name of your .bib file**} where you want 
the bibliography to occur, usually right before the \end{document} 
  - \cite commands for the individuals references; note that you can 
make non-referenced items appear by meanns of the \nocite{} command

  - typeset the file with TeXShop's LaTeX-command: shift-command-L
  - run BibTeX on it with TeXShop's BiBTeX-command: shift-command-B
  [make sure the .bib file is in the same folder as the file you're 
typesetting; there are other ways to make sure that BiBTeX is able to 
find the .bib file, but this works always]
  - type-set the file once more: now the bibliography should appear
  - type-set again: now the references in the text shoulds be there

Hope this helps,

.. same for me here: TeXShop is great, though i have some small things 
still on my wishh-list
like customizable keyboard shortcuts as in Textures, for example, or 
making the "Tags" automatically detect LaTeX section structures..

(and i know richard koch is listening to this list, so maybe there is a 
chance?  ;-)
-- thanks for writing TeX Shop, by the way!)

cheers, martin.
