Two papers with the same "first" author and the same year

Postby jjmm » Wed Apr 03, 2019 10:14 am

Hi,

With my bst file (as attached) , two papers in my reference list are
Author, X, Y. Buthor, and Z. Cuthor. 2014a
Author, X, Z. Cuthor and W. Duthor. 2014b
and the citations in the article body are
Author, Buthor and Cuthor (2014a)
Author, Cuthor and Duthor (2014b)

However I would like the reference list to be
Author, X, Y. Buthor, and Z. Cuthor. 2014
Author, X, Z. Cuthor and W. Duthor. 2014
and the citations in the article body to be
Author, Buthor and Cuthor (2014)
Author, Cuthor and Duthor (2014)

Could someone help me with it? Thanks!!

First, your modification to format.url is causing problems; delete the braces on your replacement line and it should fix that.

Getting rid of the a/b/etc. labels in the bibliography is easy: comment out the "extra.label *" line inside format.date.

Getting rid of the a/b/etc. labels in the citation is hard, and involves redefining commands within natbib. I don't know how to do this and couldn't figure it out quickly. It would likely break something if you redefine the key associated with the entry, and it would likely create ambiguous citations if you use \cite instead of \cite*, because "A. Author et al. (2014a)" is the same as "A. Author et al. (2014b)" if you delete the a and b.
