I want to create simple bibliography that would be sorted by authors name and would be with numbered links. But I have problems doing that. I tried using bibliography feature in a Word, but it strangely adds sources. For example I added some book and it adds like this (I tried various styles, but every style adds () and didn't see a way to make it numbered):

(Author, Something)

I want it to look like it is in most articles, simply like this:

My text

My text I refer to some book [1]. Another reference [2]. And some other reference to same book again [1].


[1] Author1, Book name1
[2] Author2, Book name2

How could I do this (and if I pressed on [1] in text, it should jump to referenced book. The same as in Wikipedia)?

The only way I managed to do with was using endnotes, but it does not let me use [] brackets and also I can't reference to same book twice (or maybe I don't know how), I have to create another endnote which creates new number (even if I don't need one, because I'm referring to same book).

If I understand correctly you are looking for bookmarks. With them you will be able to jump up and down the document and simulate the "wikipedia behavior" you want. Here is a more detailed article about it: Add or delete bookmarks

Essentially you go to Insert tab > Links > type a name for your bookmark and add it. Later on you go to same place and select the bookmark you created and hit "go to".

Thanks, this looks like the closest thing I need. Is it possible to make it automatically numbered? So for example if add another bookmark in between other bookmarks, it would automatically assign proper number for it. Now I see I need to manually enter numbering. And later I will need to modify manually alot if it wont adjust like this: [1] book1, [2] book2. Then let say I want to add another book that by ordering is second book, so it should adjust numbering like this: [1] book1, [2] book3, [3] book2. – Andrius Jan 8 '14 at 13:02
