#StackBounty: #bibtex #natbib #sorting In bibliographystyle{alpha}, can I sort references by the first author's last name instead …

Bounty: 50

I’m creating a bibliography using bibliographystyle{alpha}. Consider the following three references.

[Gab72] Peter Gabriel…

[GJ09] Paul G. Goerss and John F. Jardine…

[GR92] Peter Gabriel and Andrei V. Roiter…

They are automatically being displayed in my LaTeX file in the ordering above. This is alphabetical order by the marker: [Gab72] < [GJ09] < [GR92]. Is it possible to instead have the ordering based on alphabetical ordering of the first author’s last name? This would instead give the following ordering:

[Gab72] Peter Gabriel…

[GR92] Peter Gabriel and Andrei V. Roiter…

[GJ09] Paul G. Goerss and John F. Jardine…

I would prefer this latter ordering because then Peter Gabriel’s references are adjacent.
