# [Tex/LaTex] how to create numeric-style instead of authoryear-style citation call-outs

bibliographiesbibtexcitingnatbib

When I write the citations, I get the name of the author and the year, like this "[Alagarasi(2011)]", but I want the citation call-out to be numeric, say, "[2]".

\documentclass[10pt,‌​twoside,openright]{re‌​port}
\usepackage[phd]{edmaths}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{float}
\usepackage[rightcaption]{sidecap}

\bibliographystyle{apsrev}
\bibliography{reference}

\end{document}


It appears that the apsrev bibliography style was created with the makebst utility, which was written by the author of the natbib citation management package. Hence, adding the instruction

\usepackage[numbers]{natbib}


to the preamble will give you numeric style citation call-outs.
