latex Creating a Bibliography Basic bibliography without packages (manual formatting)


Example

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}% or book, report, ...

\begin{document}

See \cite{citeA} or \cite{citeB} or \cite{citeA, citeB}.

\begin{thebibliography}{x}
  % \bibitem{<biblabel>} <citation>
  \bibitem{citeA}
    {\scshape Author, A}, {\itshape A title}, Journal of So-and-So, 2000.
  \bibitem{citeB}
    {\scshape Someone, B}, {\itshape Another title}, Book of books, 1900.
\end{thebibliography}

\end{document}

Note that unless you really know why, you should probably not do this. Using designated packages (see other examples) is preferable.
