Hi all,

I am Rodrigue. I'm preparing a Beamer presentation. Withing some slides, I want to cite authors in the apalike style. I want to display both "author (year) and (author, year)".

For example I will sometime need to write Smith (1776) and sometime (Smith, 1776).

I observed that just \cite{} works. In Latex document, I simply use \cite{} to have Smith (1776) and \citep{} for (Smith, 1776) but in Beamer, \citep{} doesn't work.

Moreover, the output I get using \cite{} is that of (Smith, 1776) instead. But here is not my problem.

I've been searching unsuccessfully the solution on the internet.

So, how can I implement the citation command to have Smith (1776)? This is the main issue.

Thanks in advance

Rodrigue

Hi,

The \citep{} command is used to display the author's name as well as the year in parentheses. To display only the year in parentheses for your citation, use the \citet{} command instead.
Hi HelpiOS

Thank you for your reply. As I mentioned, \citep{} doesn't work. My editor Texstudio doesn't recognise that keyword. I also tried \citet{} that you propose but this is not recognised too.

Is it specific to Beamer ? Because even using Texmaker nothing changes.

You need the Natbib package which is a reimplementation of the Latex \cite command. Here's the link to download it. Then add \usepackage{natbib} in Textmaker to use the package.

Thank you very much. I will come back soon to let you know the outcome
Hi HelpiOS,

I'm really grateful for your help. It's fine now!! I just needed to add the natbib package I already used in the .tex document.

Thank you again
