BiBTeX not showing references entries in the latex document

While working on my bachelor thesis I came across the challenge of having to reference all papers I used as references. For this, I used BibTex as it was a requirement. I had completed the whole BibTeX file and added a reference section in my latex document. However, I did not see a single entry in the reference section. I used to think that the problem was in the BibTeX file and tried changing all parameters, but nothing seemed to help. The actual problem was that I still had not cited any of the papers in my document. Only after adding a citation the paper references will be shown in the references section.

I used to also use BibTex for referencing when I worked on Latex but now I find that Biblatex is a better option, its interface is easier and more flexible. Moreover, it has a better language localization than BibTex. I hope this helps you.
