I have a thesis which has two bibliographies. It includes a list of publications and a reference list.
The reference list should be unsorted, or rather, sorted in order of appearance, while the list of publications should be sorted by date.
I have used biblatex to do this. To sort the references by order of appearance I have used the sorting=none option in the preamble, and I have generated the list of publications by using
but have noticed that this in fact sorts the publications by name.
I have seen this: biblatex style with multiple bibliographies in one document, which seemed to indicate that sorting separate bibliographies with different sorting options was a coming feature. I just updated biblatex now, and it doesn't seem to be here yet.
Is there some way of forcing the list of publications to be sorted by date? I tried setting the presort, sortkey and sortname fields manually, but that did not seem to work. Any hack solution while waiting for the new biblatex version would be appreciated.
