I'm using the package;

\documentclass[a4paper, twoside, 11pt]{report}
\usepackage[sorting = none, backend = bibtex]{biblatex}

to get my references. But I want to refer to multiple references so it looks like [1-5], but I get only [1,2,3,4,5].

What must I do to get the citations to look like [1-5] instead of [1,2,3,4,5]?

  • Use a style for biblatex that does that. See the section "3.3 Standard Styles" in the documentation for where that is mentioned. – pst Apr 15 '14 at 9:02

It looks like you want the style numeric-comp

\usepackage[sorting = none, backend = bibtex, style=numeric-comp]{biblatex}

We cite three sources \cite{aristotle:anima, aristotle:physics, aristotle:poetics}.
We then cite one other source \cite{worman}. 
Finally we cite all our sources, but in a different order 
\cite{worman, aristotle:anima,aristotle:poetics, aristotle:physics}

Unrecommended way

I used the cite package before the BibLaTeX+Biber times. I enclose an example.
