# Changing bibliography styles locally [closed]

Is it possible to change the bibliography style locally in a document from author-year to numbered citation.

I have used Apalike in the thesis that I am writing now, but there are two tables which contain a lot of references. Thus, it would be handy to have numbered citations in the table.

for instance:

% Preamble:
\documentclass[global, referee]{svjour}
\usepackage{ragged2e}
\usepackage{float}
\usepackage[table]{xcolor}
\usepackage{amssymb, amsmath}
\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage{array}
\usepackage{subfig}
%-----------------%---------------------------------------------------%-----------------%
\begin{document}
%-----------------%---------------------------------------------------%-----------------%
\begin{abstract}
This is abstract

%-----------------%---------------------------------------------------%-----------------%
\section{Introduction}
this is introduction
%-----------------%---------------------------------------------------%-----------------%
%begin environment
%here change the bibliography style to a numbered citation bibliography style for e.g. ieeetr%

% Table generated by Excel2LaTeX from sheet 'Sheet1'
\begin{table}[h!]
\centering
\caption{test table}
\begin{tabular}{cc}
\toprule
{Compound} & {\% variance (R$^2$)} \\
\midrule
A & 7.1 \citep{Franek2, Eagle}\\            \rule{0cm}{0.50cm}
B & 7.4 \citep{Franek2, Eagle, Taylor}\\                \rule{0cm}{0.50cm}
C & 6.0 \citep{Franek2, Eagle, Taylor} \\           \rule{0cm}{0.50cm}
D & 6.8 \citep{Franek2, Eagle, Taylor, Carvalhal}\\     \rule{0cm}{0.50cm}
E & 5.2 \\
\bottomrule
\end{tabular}%
\label{tableauc}%
\end{table}%

%end environment

• To what would these numbered references point? Would there be a separate bibliography? Although footnotes in tables -- tablenotes, if you will -- are often discouraged (rightly or wrongly), it might be a reasonable compromise in this case. – jon Jan 16 '14 at 21:27
• I do not want to create a separate bibliography for the table. If I have 20 references in table: footnotes will cover half of my page which is not acceptable. – abhishek Jan 18 '14 at 18:06
• Then what purpose would a numbered system serve in what is otherwise an author-year system? Surely, either they are all author-year, or none are.... – jon Jan 18 '14 at 18:11
• Convenience and readability of the table. Otherwise, for e.g. in a cell, I would see a value with 5 references. for e.g. 20- 25 % (Doe et al, Smith et al, Jane et al.) If I have a big table, you can imagine what would happen. – abhishek Jan 18 '14 at 18:20
• I understand that. I mean: the numbered bibliography items have to be somewhere else --- where would that be? and how would it (not) relate to the regular bibliography? You are not providing much information about how everything should fit together. – jon Jan 18 '14 at 18:22
