### Numbers instead of Author Names

Hello everyone,

I'm new here. I'm a Belgian student, so please forgive my English.

I've been looking two hours around the net to solve my problem but I didn't found any answer which would help me out. So here I am. My general code is this.
\documentclass[12pt]{report}\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}\usepackage[french]{babel}\usepackage{lipsum}\usepackage{qtree}\usepackage{url}\usepackage{color}\newcommand\gts[1]{\og#1\fg}\definecolor{gris}{gray}{0.95}\usepackage{expex}\usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage[french]{minitoc} % to add bib in table of contents\usepackage[nottoc]{tocbibind} % ordonated bib\bibliographystyle{unsrt} \begin{document} \begin{titlepage}\input{./title_page.tex}\end{titlepage} %\maketitle % minitoc preparation\dominitoc % table of contents\tableofcontents % different chapters\include{introduction}\include{chap1}\include{chap2}\include{chap3}	\include{conclusion}\appendix\include{annexes} % bibliography\bibliographystyle{apalike-fr}\bibliography{allbiblio}\end{document}

My problem is that in my thesis, the authors are cited as "[1]", "[2] etc., following their number in the bibliography. Their appearance is shown in the attachment.

In the different chapters, to cite an author, I just say \cite{author}.

Thanks a lot!

For an adequate problem description please prepare a self-contained and minimal example in order to avoid speculations and guesswork.

Seems as if you want an author-year style for your citations. I'm quite sure that a Forum Search will yield useful results with natbib or perhaps with biblatex.

Best regards and welcome to the board
