# Alphabetic order in bibliography with natbib package and author-less entries

i'm new, so I hope to do everything correctly :D

My question is fairly simple:

I've the natbib package loaded in a document, and some bibliography entries have no author. Those entries are put at the beginning of the bibliography, creating a somehow bad effect on the reader (at a first glance to the bib first page is not possible to tell the order in which the entries are presented).

Question is: how do I change it?

What I've tried so far:

• the "key" field: it doesn't work. The following image presents what happens if I set "key={zzzzz}" for a bibliography entry with no author:

A working example:

\documentclass[a4paper]{report}

\usepackage{natbib}

\begin{document}

\title{Title}
\author{Name}
\date{Date}

\maketitle

Blah Blah \citet{aida}

\bibliographystyle{plainnat}
\bibliography{thesisbib}

\end{document}


with:

@ELECTRONIC{aida,
year = {2011-2012},
title = {Aida database},
organization = {Bureau Van Dijk},
url = {http://aida.bvdep.com},
key = {zzzzzz}
}


thanks!

And where should they go instead? At the end of the document? (Guessing from the 'zzzzzz'....) –  jon Jul 15 '12 at 22:37
It seems you forgot to insert the image, showing the problem with your approach. Also please make a real MWE, i.e. remove all irrelevant classe. –  canaaerus Jul 16 '12 at 5:42
Yes, I would like to put them all at the end of the bibliography. I cannot insert the image (not enough reputation, if I understood correctly)... –  scannerdarkly Jul 16 '12 at 11:48
The solution I propose is to use the cite package instead of natbib.
I encountered the same problem as you when citing websites. The only reason I used natbib was to numerically sort multiple citations ([1,3,4] instead of [3,4,1]), but the cite package also sorts citations.
