What is BIB file?

A BIB file is a BibTeX Bibliography Database file created by the LaTex app. A BIB file holds references to a collection of publications.

Additional information

LaTeX is a high-quality typesetting system. It is usually used for working with technical or scientific documents. Its core benefit is that it helps users manage their references systematically. A BIB file contains a list of entries, each corresponding to a single bibliographic item. An entry in a BibTeX database file must have an author field and a title field. Other areas are optional, but it is advisable to include additional fields like editor, journal, address, chapter, etc. Since BIB files are text files, they can be opened with any text editor. But it is advised to use LaTex apps and other bibliographic managers for better results.
