Formatting Biblo References

Postby sw3quant » Mon Mar 25, 2013 6:56 pm

I am using win7, WinEdt 6, JABREF and MikTex.

I am currently using a Journal template from as the journal I am submitting to doesn't use latex. Thus I use:

  1. \usepackage{cite}
  2. \bibliographystyle{elsarticle-harv}

I have been asked to submit references in the format "Smith [2000]" when a reference is referred to in the main body of the text (note the square brackets).

How can I enforce this? Do I have to use another biblo style file? Which one?

(I tried \usepackage[square]{natbib} but this just gives an "option clash error", so I guess its wrong).

Thank You

For an adequate problem description please prepare a self-contained and minimal example.
