Sorry in advance if this has already been covered.

AFAICT there's not yet a standard latex export for org-bibtex links.

I think that the following in org-bibtex.el :
 (org-add-link-type "bibtex" 'org-bibtex-open)
sets what's needed to navigate links like
[[bibtex:mybib.bib::abibtexref]] (or [[file:mybib.bib::abibtexref]] ?)
to the contents of the bibtex notice, but doesn't help with how the
latex export needs to be.

AFAIU, it lacks a second function that could be used to export the links.
So all that's needed is another function as :
(org-add-link-type "bibtex" 'org-bibtex-open 'org-bibtex-export) which
would render as \cite{abibtexref}.

Something like :
(defun org-bibtex-export (path desc format)
  (let* ((search (when (string-match "::#?\\(.+\\)\\'" path)
                   (match-string 1 path)))
         (path (substring path 0 (match-beginning 0))))
    (cond ((eq format 'latex)
           (if (or (not desc)
                   (equal 0 (search "bibtex:" desc)))
               (format "\\cite{%s}" search)
             (format "\\cite[%s]{%s}" desc search))))))

I think this can work (see more details in [0]), and maybe that wouldn't
be too hard to patch org-bibtex for something more generic ?

Is this reasonable ?

I'm not following the list regularly, so any feedback by email couldn't

Best regards,
