I use Bibtex for quoting articles and I'm trying to typeset this :

\begin{document}

\begin{itemize}

\item Lorem ipsum sit dolor amet \cite{safarevic54}.
\item Neque porro quisquam est \cite{feitthompson63} qui dolorem ipsum quia dolor sit amet.

\end{itemize}

\bibliographystyle{siam}
\bibliography{biblio}

\end{document}

With my biblio.bib file :

@article{safarevic54,
    author  = "Igor Šafarevič",
    title   = "Construction of fields of algebraic numbers with given solvable Galois group",
    year    = "1954",
    journal = "Izv. Akad. Nauk SSSR",
    volume  = "18",
    number  = "6",
    pages   = "525--578"
}
@article{feitthompson63,
    author  = "Walter Feit and John Griggs Thompson",
    title   = "Solvability of groups of odd order",
    year    = "1963",
    journal = "Pacific Journal of Mathematics",
    volume  = "13",
    number  = "",
    pages   = "775--1029"
}

And I get this ...

  • Lorem ipsum sit dolor amet [2]
  • Neque porro quisquam est [1] qui dolorem ipsum quia dolor sit amet.

... while it would be more logical to have the numbers into square bracket inverted. Using the unsrt style, I don't have this problem anymore, but I don't like this style. So is there any idea for keeping siam, and changing this inversion ?

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – user31729 Dec 30 '14 at 18:30
  • You can use biblatex with your required modifications. – Marco Daniel Dec 30 '14 at 18:46

  1. Copy the file siam.bst (on my computer it is /usr/local/texlive/2014/texmf-dist/bibtex/bst/base/siam.bst) to unsrtsiam.bst in the work directory.
  2. Open unsrtsiam.bst in an editor and comments out the line SORT (line 993 in my copy):

    %SORT
    
  3. Change bibliography style to unsrtsiam.
