I am a beginner at LaTeX and one of the projects I'm using to teach myself has been to recreate my CV in LaTeX. I want to list my publications so that each category starts with a letter in the numbered list. For example journal articles would be j1. ; j3. ; j3. and so on. Whereas conference papers would be c1. ; c2. you get the point. I would like the items to be in descending order so my newest journal article would be j30. and the previous one j29. all the way to the first publication (oldest).
Appologies if this question has been asked previously. I searched around for an answer on this but I don't think I can phrase my search terms in a way that gets at what I am hoping to do. Thanks in advance for any pointers anyone can provide me.
