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.
I've been asked a few times for the code of my own CV.
Truth is, it was first done many, many years ago, based on the CurVe class. As I picked up tips and tricks, I kept adding and modifying the formatting styles—but I never got round to cleaning it up properly. I wouldn't wish it on anyone to have to read or use the messy code as it was *shudder*.
I got asked about it again recently, and I'm finally able to simplify the thing and put in online on Overleaf (so that other users won't get back to me with "but I don't have this package" issues either! 😉)
p/s: And yes, I got my current position with Overleaf with this CV (the full version of course)!
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.
A short primer of how reference with an approximation of UWE Harvard style.
Note that it doesn't quite match the quirks of when UWE Harvard uses et.al. after the first time a reference is cited within your text (i.e. this template works according to the rules of the first time a piece is cited within text, rather than the subsequent modifications).
