LaTeX Changing the order of references using bibtex to sequential

Hi people,
I'm having a very hard time to sort the references sequentially in my latex document. Right now my text is displayed as "blabla... [13] blabla.... blabla.... [6]" , so that I get [13] and [6] instead of [1] and [2].
I use bibtex and here's a simplification of the format I use:
Code:
\begin{document}
\bibliographystyle{unsrt}
\bibliography{source}
\end{document}
Using \bibliographystyle{unsrt} uses the same order as my source.bib file. In other words I get 13, 6 because I refer to the 13th and 6th item in my source.bib file.
I've tried to use "plain" instead of "unsrt", that changed the order but still far from 1,2,3,4,5, etc.
Any help is appreciated.

Try prsty.bst that is part of revtex (the APS LaTeX document class):

\bibliographystyle{prsty}

I took care of removing all .aux files
The important one is the .bbl file. In any case, you need to run latex, run bibtex, and run latex twice again for the change to take effect.

Yeah in fact I removed all files but the .tex and .bst files. So all .aux, the bbl, log, etc. were removed.
And yes, that's exactly what I do: run pdflatex + bib(la)tex + pdflatex (twice) and then view pdf.
I just tried to compile under a different linux distribution, and the problem remains. The order of the references is exactly the same as in the .bib file.

I could reproduce the problem with a "minimal working example".
Here's main.tex:
Code:
\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry}
\renewcommand{\refname}{Referencias}
\usepackage{cite}
\usepackage{sansmathfonts}
\usepackage[scaled]{helvet}
\renewcommand\familydefault{\sfdefault}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\DeclareMathSizes{11}{12}{7}{7}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\hypersetup{
  colorlinks=true,
  linktoc=all, 
  linkcolor=blue,
}
\title{
   {The big problem} \\
   {\large Stuff}
   }
\author{the tester}
\date{2016}
\bibliographystyle{prsty}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
\newpage
\pagestyle{plain}

\nocite{*}

\include{introduction}
\bibliography{referencias}
\end{document}
Here's referencias.bib:
Code:
@article{ author1,
   author = "tester1",
   journal = "Big bug",
   volume = "3",
   title = "How to run into bugs.",
   publisher = "{EDP} {S}ciences",
   pages = "131--148",
   year = "1998"}

@article{ author2,
  author = "tester2",
  title = "Please do bug",
   journal = "The huge bug.",
   pages ={133--267}, 
   year = "2018" }

@article{ author3,
  author = "the non bug",
   journal = "troubling bugs",
  title = "how to find bugs",
  year = "2014" }

@book{ author4,
  author = "bugs and bunny",
  title = "Introduction to bug materials",
   edition = "2nd",
   year="2009",
   publisher="wild bug" }

@inbook{ author5,
   editor = "never trust a bug",
   title = "How I created a bug",
   publisher = "Living on bugs.",
   pages = "51",
   year = "2005"}
Here's introduction.tex:
Code:
blabla \cite{author2} $\leftarrow$ should be [1]. While blablabla \cite{author1} $\leftarrow$ should be [2].

Now \cite{author5} should be [3] (and not [5]. Let's see if the problem appears with this minimal example.

Here's the screenshot of the problem:
j5ejIU0.png



Edit: Someone is telling me it's because I use \nocite. Commenting that line indeed get rids of the problem, but now I have less references at the end of the document. In many papers I've seen, they only cite a few references and they have a large list of references at the end of the document. How do they reach this?

The problem is the \nocite{*}. This puts all the entries that are in the bib file in the bibliography, in order of appearance in the file. If you want to still use nocite, you need to move it to the very end of main.tex, just before the bibliography. It will then load all the remaining entries in the bib file after those that have already been cited.

Thank you very much. Problem solved.
