thank you musa, i will try that asap - what i did first: i copied the  
stuff from the template to my document, which is being processed by  
xelatex anyway... just to get the right commands... so now i'm using  
package natbib, put in style and reference to the .bib-file: doesn't  
work! the output says, that he is looking vor a .bbl-file? never  
heard of bbl-files, though :)

Package natbib Warning: Citation `can_gen_ru' on page 2 undefined on  
input line

) [2]
No file pican.bbl.

Package natbib Warning: There were undefined citations.

any suggestions? the path i give in \bibliography is most certainly  
right, since i placed the .bib-file in the same folder. tried path  
with and without file.extension, but it doesn't help. on OS X TeX  
list i read (in archives..) something about setting paths for BiBTeX,  
but it seems to me that this is only for people who want bibtex to  
find stuff automaticallyy without having to type the path name "all  
the time" - yes?

slightly insecure greetings,
