Bibliographic citation format

Postby ikerortiz » Wed Feb 05, 2020 3:48 pm

Hi all,

When I introduce the bibliography in lyx the format that I obtain is [ cite ], with brackets and I need it to be ( cite ), with parenthesis.
Someone can help me with this ??

Best regards,

How do you create your bibliography? Please show us an example to clarify this.

Here I send your an example. I attached a Test.lyx and citation.bib files.

First in lyx I add the bibliography: Insert > Index > Bibliography Bib(la)Tex
In the new window: Add > Browse (select my .bib file)
Then in the text, I go to the point where I want to insert the cite and I do: Insert > Cite (Choose one cite)

Now when I generate the PDF I have the reference number in the tex and in the bibliography, both with brackets. I don't know how to change it for parenthesis.

If you want to have the bibliography entries written as e.g. "Einstein, A. (1905)", go to Settings->Bibliography and there set Citation style to Natbib and Natbib-style to Author-year.
