I assume you mean citation call-outs being formed as superscript-level numbers.

One way to get such citation call-outs is to load the natbib package with the option super. With this option loaded, \cite{...} commands will generate superscript numbers for citation call-outs. (Of course, you will also need to select a bibliography style to determine how entries are formatted in the bibliography section.)

enter image description here


  author = "Anne Author",
  title  = "Thoughts",
  journal= "Circularity Today",
  year   = 4004,
  volume = 1,
  number = 2,
  pages  = "3-33",


\dots as was to be shown.\cite{uvw}
