[Tex/LaTex] How to get the References section to be numbered as if it were created via \section


I am using the bibtex library to reference. Everything works fine but ideally I would like the reference section generated by bibtex to have the ordered number like \section{} generates.

For example,


would give a the labels 1,2,3,4 but I am using bibtex to generate the reference section:


This generates labels 1,2,3 but not the next number. Please let me know if there is a nice way to do this, thanks!

The tocbibind package can help you there. The option numbib will make the references into a ordinary section in the article class.
