Want to replace numbers with author,year in in text citation

Postby rsmnsu » Mon Dec 04, 2017 12:21 pm

I initiate in overleaf
  1. \documentclass[]{article}
  2. \usepackage{graphicx}
  3. \usepackage{caption}
  4. \usepackage{subcaption}
  5. \usepackage{booktabs}
  6. \usepackage{amsmath}
  7. \usepackage{rotating}
  8. \usepackage{lscape}
  9. \usepackage{caption}
  10. \usepackage{subcaption}
  11. \usepackage{float}
  12. \usepackage{booktabs,caption,fixltx2e}
  13. \usepackage[flushleft]{threeparttable}
  14. \usepackage{tabularx}
  15. \usepackage{adjustbox}
  16. \usepackage{hyperref}
  17. \usepackage{morefloats}
  18. \usepackage{breakcites}
  20. \begin{document}
  21. Such as \cite{Maneschiold:2006,Dungey:2005,Karolyi:2003,Daly:2003,Forbes:2002,Allen:2000,Engle:1994,Masulis:1990}. Indeed, studies investigating systemic risks through contagion, more recently, suggests economic downturns originate in networks between entities
  23. \bibliographystyle{plain}
  24. \bibliography{paper1}
  25. \end{document}

My output looks like
'Such as [1 ,2 , 3].....'
I want results to be instead, (Maneschold, 2006; Dungey ,2005;...)

Please help

Bibliography style plain is a numbered style (as you can see), this is the Vancouver system of citing.
You are looking for a style in the Harvard system, which means author-date.
Please have a look at Where can I find collections of bibliography styles?
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
