I'm trying to format a bibliography for a journal submission, and they have the requirement that each bibliography entry is followed by "the page numbers of your manuscript in which these references are cited," . For instance:

SMITH, John, T. (1966): The Theory of Social Science. Ulan Bator: Famous University Press. [2,3]

Here 2 and 3 would be the pages in my manuscript, where this book is cited. I'm using natbib.

Any idea how to do this?

Welcome to TeX.sx! Maybe the natbib package itself has such an option (didn't check that) but there is a package called ``backref```providing exactly this functionality. – Benedikt Bauer Dec 7 '12 at 22:48

As the documentation of natbib says, you should either use package citeref (loaded after natbib), or package hyperref with the pagebackref option (always loaded last).

Awesome, thanks to both ! Both solutions work. For anyone who might be also trying this: citeref looks a bit better imho, with brackets around the page numbers. – Elessar Dec 7 '12 at 23:21
