Economics bib style Library

The collection below is a Latex library for economics journals. Some of these (AER, CJE) come standard with TexLive2007. Click on the journal name, then save the file as a .bst in the folder with your document. The last part of the path will be the name that you should save the file as. For example .../aea.bst.txt should be saved as aea.bst.
Unless otherwise noted, these bibliography styles are not official or endorsed. There may be mistakes in them. Contact the author if you find or fix a mistake.
The authors of some of bib styles recommend they be matched with a partner class .cls. It is best to open each .bst to see if it is paired with a particular class before using.
I have collected these bst files from web sources and friends. If you have a file that you care to donate to the library, please email me.

You can use Makebst to customize a bibliography style by ansering a series of questions. Just download the file, open makebst.tex and put the resulting .bst file in the folder of your document.

There is a general .bst library here, but I find that it is not very good with economics journals.
Elsevier provides an author's package for us on all of their journals.
Arne Henningsen maintains the economtex package containg all of the classes and bibstyles from the TexLive distribution as well as many more. You can find relatively simple instructions for installing .bst files here.
Useful links goes to a page of links to BibTex reference managers and citation packages.
