I would like my bibliography sorted by author. I don't know why it is not working in my current document. Can you help me? I am new in LaTeX. Thanks, Pablo.


\usepackage[authoryear, round, sort]{natbib} 

\   usepackage{bookmark}















Examples of biblio entries:

  author={Chung, Wanyu},
  title={\textbf{Imported inputs and invoicing currency choice: Theory and         evidence from UK transaction data}},
  journal={Journal of International Economics},

 title = {\textbf{Exchange Rate Pass-Through, Currency of Invoicing and     Market Share}},
 author = "Michael B. Devereux and Ben Tomlin and Wei Dong",
 institution = "National Bureau of Economic Research",
 type = "Working Paper",
 series = "Working Paper Series",
 number = "21413",
 year = "2015",
 month = "July",
 URL = "http://www.nber.org/papers/w21413",

    Which sorting have you defined in \bibliographystyle{myplainnat}?

  • Assuming myplainnat has the same sorting setup as plainnat, your code will deliver a formatted bibliography with entries sorted by the surnames of the respective first-named authors.

I had changed plainnat since I wanted to change "and" for "y" (spanish reference) like was suggested here:

Replace the "AND" between authors' names in citations and references with its equivalent in another language, e.g., Spanish


Apparently i did not replace all the "and" in the .bst document. Now I replaced all and it is working fine.

It is fixed!
