I¹m pretty sure that it¹s the Bibtex that¹s the problem. Actually that
example you gave is very helpful - I¹ll take a look at the example Bibtex
file that I¹ve got and see if I can see any glaring issues.

Yuri, in principle the Jabref app seems like it should work fine however
it¹s causing me issues on my Macbook - I¹m going to try and get it running
on a Windows machine. Thanks for the links, though.
