I would like to cite all works in the text with a single command (e.g., \cite{*}), best in alphabetical order.

To clarify: I don't want the references to appear only in the bibliography (as it could be achieved with the \nocite{*} command) and I don't want to paste all bibkeys in the command.

Any ideas how to achieve this?

With biblatex you use Ulrike Fischer's citeall package.

Simply type \citeall to cite all sources. If you want to use a different command than \cite, use \citeall[<command>], e.g. \citeall[\fullcite] to \fullcite all sources from the .bib file.

Since the format of the .bbl file changed a bit since the last release of citeall, I needed a bit of extra code to get it to run properly.

\usepackage[backend=biber, style=authoryear]{biblatex}
