I'm using BibTeX and biblatex for my documents. I'm now writing an article and am required to write the bibliography with the following style:

  1. C. Tsallis et al., Phys. Rev. A 63 (2001) 042104.

While rest of the style can be achieved using the biblatex-phys package, I don't know how to set the style for the reference number, i.e. how to change [1] to 1.

  title = {Alpha},
