Remark plugin for adding citations and bibliographies to Markdown documents.

Bibliographies are included by specifying the bibliography field in the YAML frontmatter metadata at the top of each document. Inline citations simply use @ followed by the name of the source. A complete bibliography will then be appended to the bottom of the output. See the example below for more details.

This plugin requires remark-meta to resolve the path to bibliography files. Files are resolved relative to the path of the markdown file.

BibJSON is the only format currently supported, but support for other formats like BibTeX, MODS, and RIS is planned. Pull requests are welcome.


This package is ESM only: Node 12+ is needed to use it and it must be imported instead of required.


npm install remark-bibliography


Consider the following example:

bibliography: example.json
locale: en-us
style: chicago

# Example Bibliography
