Error bibtex when compiling doc

Postby sorayahosni » Tue May 08, 2018 8:33 am


I tried compiling my final document and I received many error messages with this below as a description.
Is there anyone who could help me fix this?

...vécu à la manière de Malinowski\citep
The control sequence at the end of the top line
of your error message was never \def'ed. If you have
misspelled it (e.g., `\hobx'), type `I' and the correct
spelling (e.g., `I\hbox'). Otherwise just continue,
and I'll forget about whatever was undefined.

Thank you,

You need to load package natbib.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Welcome to the forum!

This means, btw., adding \usepackage{natbib} to your document preamble. That package provides the \citep command, as Johnnes said.
