I have a bibliography in BibTeX. However I need to report the most important literature I have written thus far. These three entries must be presented in the enumeration environment.

Of course one can simply format these entries properly. However I am looking for a more elegant solution where I only specify the key and the LaTeX compiler formats the entry properly.

Are there any solutions to this problem?

A simple trick would be to redefine the thebibliography environment as the enumerate environment
