I have use the \bibliographystyle{ieeetr} before as style for my Bibliography but when I wanted to add URL to the article entry, The ieeetr style did not recognize the URL. Therefore I changed the style to plainurl where I have lost the option to keep the citation number in the document incremented consecutively. Is there anyway to reach both option in one style or to fix it?

Currently I am getting t in the document this sequence of the citation number 3,1,2 and I want to get 1,2,3.

tex code

  author = {Leon Stenneth and Ouri Wolfson and Philip S. Yu and Bo Xu},
  title = {Transportation Mode Detection using Mobile Phones and {GIS} Information},
  journal = {ACM DL},
  year = {2011},
  pages = {3},
   author = {androidcommunity.com},
   title = {Waze traffic app updates with {Foursquare} and {Yelp} integration},
   howpublished = {\url{http://androidcommunity.com/waze-traffic-app-updates-with-foursquare-and-yelp-integration-20120131/}},
   note = {Accessed: 29.09.2015}
  author = {Rudolf Giffinger},
  title = {Smart cities Ranking of {European} medium-sized cities},
  journal = {Report of Centre of Regional Science},
  year = 2007,
  month = "October",
  url  = {http://www.smart-cities.eu/download/smart_cities_final_report.pdf},
  note = "Accessed: Nov.~6, 2015",
  pages = {11}

I suggest you make two changes:

  • Don't load the cite package; instead, load the natbib package with the option numbers (since you appear to use numeric citation call-outs):

  • Use the unsrtnat bibliography style instead of the plainurl style:


After making these modifications, be sure to run LaTeX, BibTeX, and LaTeX twice more to fully propagate all changes.
