# How can I organize the bibliography in order of appearance? [duplicate]

• If you build the bibliography by hand, you are in charge of everything -- including the order in which each and every \bibitem appears inside the thebibliography environment. – Mico Jan 13 '17 at 11:43
• If you would switch to biblatex or bibtex, there would be automatic ways. – user36296 Jan 13 '17 at 11:44
