## Bibliography sorted by Year

### Bibliography sorted by Year

Hello,

I am using BibTeX and I have more than 53 references to put into the bibliography. I have created a BibTeX file and I would like to sort those references by year of publications : 2012, 2011, 2010, ...

Is there any command which can do it ?

Thanks

I don't know if you need a particular style, but you can sort bibliography data using the databib package (part of the datatool bundle).
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\documentclass{article}\usepackage{databib}\begin{document}% First argument is the name of new datatool database% Second argument is list of .bib files\DTLloadbbl{mybibdata}{acmtr}% Sort database in order of year starting from most recent\DTLsort{Year=descending}{mybibdata}% Add citations\nocite{*}% Display bibliography\DTLbibliography{mybibdata}\end{document}
