### Bibliography sorted by Year

Hello,

I am using BibTeX and I have more than 53 references to put into the bibliography. I have created a BibTeX file and I would like to sort those references by year of publications : 2012, 2011, 2010, ...

Is there any command which can do it ?

Thanks

I don't know if you need a particular style, but you can sort bibliography data using the databib package (part of the datatool bundle).
\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{databib}

\begin{document}
% First argument is the name of new datatool database
% Second argument is list of .bib files
% Sort database in order of year starting from most recent
\DTLsort{Year=descending}{mybibdata}
\nocite{*}

% Display bibliography
\DTLbibliography{mybibdata}
\end{document}
