I am working on a document containing two separate bibliographies, using the package
bibtopic. The entries in both bibliographies are sorted alphabetically and I would like to change that.
I know that it's not possible with
bibtopic to sort entries in the order of appearance. However, the documentation of bibtopic.sty states that it's possible to sort the entries according to the order in which they appear in the
.bib file (see Section 5: Bugs and Restrictions, footnote #9):
So since there are no specific
\citationcommands in the (additional)
.auxfiles, BIBTEX can only apply author-year sorting or print the items in the order they appear in the
Unfortunately, the documentation does not explain how to achieve the latter option. At least there is no documented option to bibtopic to control the sorting behavior. Also, choosing different
.bst style files (plain, unsrt, etc.) does not affect the sorting at all.
