I am using \bibliography{Temp_Bib} command to import reference entries in my report. In Temp_Bib.bib file I keep the BibTex entries of cited articles. I am using \cite{Keyword} to cite an entry from my bibliography file. When I use latex2pdf then the entries of bibliography section shown in the order in which they are called by \cite command.

So is there any way in which I can display the entries in my bibliography with the sorted manner of authors second name?

Right now no matter what I put the bibtex entries, they are displayed in the order in which they are cited in report. I want that in whatever order they are cited; they should be display according to authors name in sorted manner.

    do not use the bibliographystyle unsrt. Use style plain or alpha instead – user2478 May 18 '11 at 6:35
  • Thanks.. but which style I should use so references will be displayed in sorted according to authors last name. – anilonwebs May 18 '11 at 6:42
  • what documentclass do you have? And do you have a command \bibliographystyle{...}? – user2478 May 18 '11 at 6:47
  • I am using \documentclass{llncs} and \bibliographystyle{alpha}. By this I am able to get references in sorted order according to author names. But they are numbered like [AB05]... [AF07]... And I need it like [1]... [2]... Any suggestions...! – anilonwebs May 18 '11 at 7:05

    @Herbert could you add an answer so we can get this off the unanswered tab? – Seamus May 18 '11 at 11:21

Are you supposed not to use biblatex as a package? Otherwise I strongly advise you to do so, since it is quite easy to choose the sorting option of the bibliography, whatever the style of bibliography you are using.
