How to change a .bst for references sorted in order of appearance

Postby ajamel88 » Mon May 18, 2020 6:11 pm

I've been struggling trying to format my references for a paper for Springer guidelines. In the package they use to provide a spmpsci.bst file which formats the references exactly as they require, but the only issue is that the references are sorted in alphabetical order, and now I need them sorted in order of appearance. Is there any way of tuning the .bst in order to get the references sorted in order of appearance? Anyone had the same problem?

There should be another file in the same directory (if you got this from the Springer svjour3 package) called spbasic.bst and another called spphys.bst. The spphys.bst style should leave them in citation order.
