The output im trying to get

My code:

\documentclass{article}
\title{Ref}
\author{Ref}
\begin{document}

There is a very useful mathematics text book for engineering students written by Erwin Kreysig \cite{aem}. For those of you interested in the hazard from \textit{Clostridium botulinum} associated with 
Alaskan native foods should refer to. For information on fast index assignment algorithm that uses quadratic assignment, see 

\bibliographystyle{plain}
\bibliography{References}

Im having trouble with the 5th reference in the image and how to sort the citations and get the output [3,1,4]

For what I understand, your bib file contains mistakes (authors order is important…). And to cite multiple references, just use \cite{<key1>,<key2>,…,<keyN>}.

\documentclass{article}

\title{Ref}
\author{Ref}

\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}

Edit

Add the 5th reference and use biblatex. Run with biber and be sure having an updated .bib file.

% !BIB TS-program = biber
% !TeX encoding = utf8
% !TeX spellcheck = en_GB
% !TeX TS-program = pdflatex

\documentclass{article}\usepackage[%

  • By the way, the keys you choose are not really easy to use… I prefer something like <First author last name><year> plus a letter in case there are several publications in the same year. – NBur Jan 19 at 16:59
  • Thanks for the help! – Kain Jan 20 at 6:45
