Robert:  Although Bibtex does help one to put together a bibliography
it is not essential to go down this route since ordinary laTeX commands
will do the job just as effectively particularly for a one-off paper as eg

\begin{thebibliography}[99]
\bibitem{abc03} Author, A., J. Irreproducible Results, 56:345--56,
\textbf{2003}.
......
\end{thebibliography}

I find that dedicated bibliographic tools such as Endnote are the best for
importing
data from online sources such as Web of Science, Chemical Abstracts, etc
and maintaining an in-house library of references which can then be pasted
into a
LaTeX document in the desired format.
