### Numbered references.

Hello all!

I'm using "apacite" package and I was wondering whether there is a way to add numbers to every reference used in the bibliography. If yes, please provide an example.

Thanks & regards.

I think I got what i want. I used the following code in the preamble:

\usepackage{etoolbox}\makeatletter\newcounter{bibcount}\renewcommand{\thebibcount}{\arabic{bibcount}.} % format number\patchcmd{\@lbibitem}{\item[}{\item[\stepcounter{bibcount}{\hss\llap{\thebibcount}\quad}}{}{}\makeatother
