How to get, for instance,

[19] S. Roth and M. J. Black. Fields of experts: A framework for learning image priors. In IEEE Conf. on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, 2005. 1, 2, 7, 8

where the last numbers (1, 2, 7, 8) are the pages where I cited the paper in MY TEXT?

This would be like a reversed reference, or a index for bibliography.

use package option backref=page for hyperref. – Kurt Aug 26 '12 at 16:48

The feature to which you refer is known as "back references". As Kurt pointed out, if you are using the hyperref package, you can just pass backref=page as a package option. If however, you are not using hyperref (and don't wish to), you can also \usepackage{backref} without hyperref. (You do not mention how familiar you are with LaTeX; if you have any trouble understanding how to do this, please amend your question appropriately.)

These will enable backreferences for all items in the bibliography. It is not quite clear from your question whether you instead only want this to apply to a single paper. If so, please clarify, and we will see if we can help.

The biblatex package also offers a backref option that may be used together with hyperref. See section of the biblatex manual for the configuration of back references possible via the backrefstyle option.





  author = {Author, A.},
  year = {2001},
  title = {Alpha},



\null\vfill% just for the example

Some text \autocite{A01}.
