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

I initiate in overleaf
\documentclass[]{article}\usepackage{graphicx}\usepackage{caption}\usepackage{subcaption}\usepackage{booktabs}\usepackage{amsmath}\usepackage{rotating}\usepackage{lscape}\usepackage{caption}\usepackage{subcaption}\usepackage{float}\usepackage{booktabs,caption,fixltx2e}\usepackage[flushleft]{threeparttable}\usepackage{tabularx}\usepackage{adjustbox}\usepackage{hyperref}\usepackage{morefloats}\usepackage{breakcites} \begin{document}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 \bibliographystyle{plain}\bibliography{paper1}\end{document}

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

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.
