This question already has an answer here:
I want my references to be sorted in the order of presence in the text. I use unsrt.bst and it works well. The only problem is that before the main text starts, I have a list of figures and in the caption of some figures, I have citation. So the unsrt.bst start numbering the references from list of figures. It means that the first reference is in the list, not the main text.
Is there any way for unsrt.bst to ignore citation in list and start its numbering from the main text?
