I just learned that the bibliography style alphanum is what I looking for to use in my text. But I am so beginner! It seems to me that one should download the related bst file (for the alphanum style); but I don't know where to save it on texlive directory (I know there is a bst folder in bibtex folder, but not more).
Another question is that should I necessarily make use of bibtex? It seems too difficult to me. All my knowledge is to write a command like \bibliographystyle{alphanum} and make use a bib file which contains my references.

    I suggest to use biblatex with the alphabetic style, as it is easier to customise if you have any special needs (it uses a latex syntax).

    Most modern LaTeX environments will have the style already in and will take care of the bibtex run. If you have any problem, please state which LaTeX system you use, on which operating system, and which editor --- as well as a short, complete code that shows the problem.

  • @Bernard Thanks. It seem really that fundamental solution is biblatex. Sometimes I should try to be familiar with it.

  • The fundamental problem I had (which not noticed in the Question above), was that I am writing the text in Persian, and Persian is a language which is written from right to left. And so there are always issues with numbers and Latin text. The problem solved temporarily by the command \lr{\cite{}} instead of \cite{}.
