Default Format for Citation Style

Postby PetteriTei » Tue Jan 31, 2012 2:04 am

Dear all,

I am slightly a beginner for LaTeX and LyX and wrote my thesis with LyX using the style template "classicthesis" provided by André Miede (http://www.miede.de/index.php?page=classicthesis)

I wanted to tune the way to cite from text but couldn't find a way from documentation how to do the following for all citations (need to add for preamble probably?)

I cited all my references by the "Cite in LyX" of LyZ-plugin for Zotero (used with Firefox) so the default format for all my citations was the: (citet)

\citet{roenneberg2008modelling} , i.e. Roenneberg et al. (2008)

and I figured out the way to manually change it to the format that I wanted without the brackets around the year and with a comma: (citealp)

\citealp{roenneberg2008modelling}, i.e. Roenneberg et al., 2008

But as I have so many citations that changing them manually one-by-one would be pure insanity, I was wondering if there is way to apply to changes to all the files?

So the classicthesis uses natbib:
  1. \PassOptionsToPackage{square,comma}{natbib}
  2. \RequirePackage{natbib}

But I couldn't find from there for example a way to add some parameters specifying the formatting of citation style.

Best wishes,

Why do it manually and one by one?
You can use the ''replace all'' option in your editor and substitute all

with

with a single click (see attached image).

Hi,

I have been searching on the net about setting a default citation style in Lyx and found that most of the solutions were either:

(1) Open in a text editor and do replace of the citation tags (as above)
or
(2) Set for one citation, and that style would be remembered by Lyx for the rest of the document.

I am not too much in favor of (1) above as I am still in the process of making my document and each compile would reset citation changes (I believe). I am fine with method (2), but it does not seem to work for me. Lyx just does not 'remember' my last set citation style.

What could be the issue here? I am using LyX Version 2.1.1 with natbib (author-year) for my citation style. Thanks for any help.
