I wish to know if there is a way to cross-reference the citations with the sections in which they are cited. Foe example, if a citation is given in Section 1, then in the References part, citation 1 should have a reference to section 1. Does anyone have any idea about how to do that? Another example is in this paper - Example Paper

You need to load the hyperref package with the option backref=section.

enter image description here

@misc{abc,author = "A and B and C", year = 3001}
@misc{uvw,author = "U and V and W", year = 4001}

\bibliographystyle{plain} % choose a suitable bib style
