I've a bibliography which include websites. I want to have an alphabetical sort. Thus I use the plain style which do the job great. The problem is websites are less important than others references and I would like to put them at last.

Is it possible to force that?

Here is a part of the BibTex file :

@Misc{wikianglais,
title = {\url{http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackjack}},
month = {mai},
year = {2013}
}

@Book{Thorp,
author = {Edward O. Thorp},
ALTeditor = {},
title = {Beat the dealer},
publisher = {Vintage Books Edition},
year = {1966},
month = {février}
}

@Book{Braun,
author = {Julian H. Braun},
ALTeditor = {•},
title = {How to play winning Blackjack},
publisher = {Data House Pub. Co},
year = {1980}
}

I would like to get : Braun, Thorp and then the Wikipedia reference but the actual order is : the Wikipedia reference, Braun, Thorp.

    Can you please add a minimal working example (MWE) of your bibliography? – karlkoeller Aug 17 '13 at 15:51

    there's n unsrt style that should set your bib items in the order in which they occur in your .bib file. i'm not sure what is used for labels in the output. – barbara beeton Aug 17 '13 at 17:37

This is not a proper solution, but it works...

Add a "fake" key field

key = {zzzz}

in all your @Misc entries.

In this way the key field is used for sorting (and zzzz comes after all the other entries, I suppose), but it is not printed in the bibliography. BTW, I don't know any ALTeditor field.

So, changing your bibliography MWE to

@Misc{wikianglais,
key = {zzzz},
title = {\url{http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackjack}},
month = {mai},
year  = {2013}
}

@Book{Thorp,
author = {Edward O. Thorp},
ALTeditor = {},
title = {Beat the dealer},
publisher = {Vintage Books Edition},
year = {1966},
month = {février}
}

@Book{Braun,
author = {Julian H. Braun},
ALTeditor = {•},
title = {How to play winning Blackjack},
publisher = {Data House Pub. Co},
year = {1980}
}

should be enough.

A MWE just to test it:

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage[colorlinks]{hyperref}

\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@Misc{wikianglais,
key = {zzzz},
title = {\url{http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackjack}},
month = {mai},
year  = {2013}
}

@Book{Thorp,
author = {Edward O. Thorp},
ALTeditor = {},
title = {Beat the dealer},
publisher = {Vintage Books Edition},
year = {1966},
month = {février}
}

@Book{Braun,
author = {Julian H. Braun},
ALTeditor = {•},
title = {How to play winning Blackjack},
publisher = {Data House Pub. Co},
year = {1980}
}
\end{filecontents}

\begin{document}

\cite{wikianglais} \cite{Thorp} \cite{Braun}

\bibliographystyle{plain}
\bibliography{\jobname}

\end{document}
