I have created a .bib file containing the resources. I'm using biblatex with style=numeric. I would like to have in my document the numbers order as I have inserted the corresponding resources in the .bib file.

Use the package option sorting=none and add \nocite{*} in the preamble. Note that this will also assign numbers to entries you don't cite in the document body.




  author = {Buthor, B.},
  year = {2002},
  title = {Bravo},
  author = {Cuthor, C.},
  year = {2003},
  title = {Charlie},
  author = {Author, A.},
  year = {2001},
  title = {Alpha},




Some text \autocite{A01,B02,C03}.

yeah thanks...sorting = none resolved my problem – Mazzy Nov 19 '12 at 11:42
To me don't work, sorting=none sorts by citation order and sorting=debug sorts alphabetically by key. This option doesn't sort by .bib – skpblack Aug 22 '14 at 4:37
