The MLA citation style shows citations as (Author, YYYY) or some similar while I'd prefer it to style them numerically, like [1]. I have tried BibWord, I don't know XML.

Please provide me with means of solving such task.

BibWord has a list of styles none of which match the requirement. It also has a tool which does not appear to do what I am after.

No, I'm not looking for ISO 690. The style requirement only has a few examples, like the one below.

[1] Guo, Z.Y., Zhu, H.Y., Liang, X.G., “Entransy - A physical quantity describing heat transfer ability,” Int. J. Heat Mass Transf., 50(13-14), pp. 2545-2556, (2007).

  • MLA does not use numbered citations, ever. You are looking for ISO 960 Citations. – G Koe Mar 14 '14 at 4:15
  • did Bibword not work for you? – G Koe Mar 14 '14 at 4:24

Bibword is quite simple to use and the citations that you need are the iso960 square bracket citations found here.

Download the .XSL (not a typo) file and copy it into the Microsoft Word bibliography style directory. This directory can vary depending on where Word is installed:

On most 32-bits machines with Microsoft Word 2010 this will be:

%programfiles%\Microsoft Office\Office14\Bibliography\Style

Put that code into a RUN box and copy the XSL file into there.

(if that doesn't work, search your hard drive for winword.exe and open the Bibliography folder and then the Style folder found there.)

Once the styles are copied to the directory, they will show up every time Microsoft Word is opened.
