How to cite a URL in BibTeX

To cite a URL in BibTeX, put

\usepackage{url} % By default the URLs are put in typewriter type in the body and the % bibliography of the document when using the \url command. If you are % using many long URLs you may want to uncommennt the next line so they % are typeset a little smaller. % \renewcommand{\UrlFont}{\small\tt} between your and command. You may want to uncomment the command, see the the instructions above.

Use, for example,

\cite{Senn:2009} to cite the URL in the text.

Your .bib file should contain, for example,

@manual{Senn:2009, title = "Using {\LaTeX} for Your Thesis", author = "Mark Senn", url = "http://engineering.purdue.edu/~mark/puthesis", year = "2009 (accessed February 3, 2014)" }

Or, if your bibliographystyle does not support the url field (you'll get errors when BiBTeX runs or the output will be wrong), use

@manual{Senn:2009, title = "Using {\LaTeX} for Your Thesis", author = "Mark Senn", note = "\url{http://engineering.purdue.edu/~mark/puthesis}", year = "2009 (accessed February 3, 2014)" }

Email me (see link on second line of this document) if you have questions or problems.

Thanks to Derrick Kearney for sending correct url.sty link.
