Alphabetically sorted References

Postby offroad » Mon Feb 18, 2013 5:14 am

Hi all,

Could you help me figuring out what packages I should use to get all references sorted alphabetically?

These are the packages and settings I'm using.
  1. \usepackage{natbib}
  2. \bibpunct{(}{)}{;}{a}{,}{,}
  3. % ...
  4. \bibliographystyle{plainnat}
  5. \renewcommand{\bibname}{Referências}
  6. \bibliography{Referencias}

But I've tested many without success.

Thank you in advance

Your example works for me. My suspicion is that there is something amiss with your BibTeX file (*.bib). For example, if you do something like
  1. % This code is broken; an example of what NOT to do!
  2. @article{myentry,
  3. author = {{I. M. N. Author} and {I. P. Freely}},
  4. title = "Hello",
  5. journal = "etc.",
  6. year = 2013
  7. }

then BibTeX treats "I. M. N. Author" as one name. To get it treated as first and last, leave off the second sets of braces.

If that's not it, please post a minimal example .bib file (two or three entries, preferably NOT in alphabetical order) along with a minimal working example of your LaTeX code and we'll see what we can find.
