Author-Year Citation with Number in References

LaTeX Forum: BibTeX, biblatex and biber

author-yearbibliographiesnatbibAdd tags Information and discussion about BiBTeX - the bibliography tool for LaTeX documents.

I'm using this for getting author-year citation.
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\usepackage[authoryear, semicolon, sort&compress]{natbib}


It is working fine for me. The references are without numbering. Is it possible to get numbering of the references in a author-year citation case?

Could you illustrate how you want this to look? Author-year means that citations are of the form 'Other (2013)' and so on, so numbers do not usually make sense.

I am also facing the same problem to a design a style with natbib where citation are in author year style i.e (Andrew, 2009) and references numbered

The issue is both format are contrdictary but still it is required.

If anybody has worked on it. Do suggest

Hi and welcome,

even though it is a bit contradictory, it is easy possible with the relatively new package biblatex.

Hint: Click on Open in Writelatex (which is now known as Overleaf) to see the result directly. We use the sample database coming with the package and the bibliography processor biber, which replaces the quite old bibtex.
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\cite{westfahl:space,aristotle:physics} and \cite{companion}
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
