That still sounds to me like you're creating a numbered list from what
is currently just a series of lines and paragraphs. Or else you're
trying to do what org footnotes do: automatically link the numbering
between the in-text references, and the article list at the end. Maybe
try footnotes?

If this isn't right, maybe show us a simple example of the text you've
got, and what you're hoping to do.
