In MS Word 2016, is there a way to create multiple citations that will appear within a single set of brackets, i.e. using IEEE style?

For example [1-3] instead of [1][2][3].


To group, combine bibliographic references in Word must be placed within the first cite entered, at the end of the closing bracket, according to the citation style, and there enter the second or next.


  • Even though your answer is quite helpful, I was actually looking for a method that could make my citation appear like this: [1-3] instead of [1][2][3] or [1,2,3]. – Matheus Carvalho Aug 25 '18 at 19:56
