Bibliography sorted by Year

Postby nenu28 on Thu May 17th, 2012


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 ?

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


% First argument is the name of new datatool database
% Second argument is list of .bib files
% Sort database in order of year starting from most recent
% Add citations

% Display bibliography
