# printing bibliography with numbers in order of year or in order of citation with biblatex [duplicate]

For a CV I want my bib-items to be sorted with respect to the year with the most recent item appearing first. In addition I have to use a certain style sheet, the Unified Style Sheet for Linguistics. The sorting option seems to do what I want but it does not do so when combined with the style. The order of output should be:

[1] Müller, 2018
[2] Müller & Ørsnes, 2015
[3] Müller, 2013


Is it possible to generate numbered output, e.g. as above with [1], [2], [3]?

The style files are here: https://github.com/langsci/latex/tree/master/langsci/bst

\usepackage{filecontents}

\usepackage[
natbib=true,

• Can't you just do style=biblatex-sp-unified, citestyle=sp-authoryear-comp,? If these files indeed live in /Users/stefan/Library/texmf/tex/latex/langsci/bst/ or subdirectories they should be found. (Of course you need to texhash after install). If you run kpsewhich biblatex-sp-unified.bbx from the command line what response do you get? – moewe Mar 23 '18 at 11:16
