# \cite without hyperlink (Citation in captions)

I want cite a reference (by using \citet, \citeauthor or \citeyear.) inside a \caption{}. Something like this:

\caption{Characteristics assessed in \citet{perell_fall_2001}}


I'm using the natbib package as well as hyperref. The thing is that I don't want the reference to have the hyperlink to its bibliography entry (because it looks awful in the list of tables at the beginning of the document).

Is there any way to achive this? I've found one question very close to what I'm looking for:

But it is for \ref, not for \cite...

MWE:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{tabularx}
\usepackage{natbib}
\usepackage{hyperref}

\begin{document}

\begin{table}\small
\centering
\caption{Characteristics assessed in \citet{perell_fall_2001}}
\newcolumntype{Y}{>{\raggedright\arraybackslash}X}
\begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{YY}
\bfseries Patient Characteristic & Number of studies\\
\firsthline\\
Mental status or cognitive impairment & 5 \\
\lasthline\\
\end{tabularx}
\label{tab:PerrellAssesment}
\end{table}

\nocite{*}
\bibliographystyle{IEEEtranSN}
\bibliography{refs}

\end{document}


Where refs.bib is:

@article{perell_fall_2001,
title = {Fall Risk Assessment Measures An Analytic Review},
volume = {56},
issn = {1079-5006, 1758-{535X}},
url = {http://biomedgerontology.oxfordjournals.org/content/56/12/M761},
doi = {10.1093/gerona/56.12.M761},
number = {12},
journal = {The Journals of Gerontology Series A: Biological Sciences and Medical Sciences},
author = {Perell, Karen L. and Nelson, Audrey and Goldman, Ronald L. and Luther, Stephen L. and Prieto-Lewis, Nicole and Rubenstein, Laurence Z.},
}

@MarcoDaniel it didn't work... –  Mario S. E. May 13 '13 at 15:02

You can temporally disable hyperref by using the environment NoHyper. The environment is fragile so you have to use \protect:

 \caption{Characteristics assessed in {\protect\NoHyper\citet{perell_fall_2001}\protect\endNoHyper}}


Here the complete MWE:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{tabularx}
\usepackage{natbib}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{refs.bib}
@article{perell_fall_2001,
title = {Fall Risk Assessment Measures An Analytic Review},
volume = {56},
issn = {1079-5006, 1758-{535X}},
url = {http://biomedgerontology.oxfordjournals.org/content/56/12/M761},
doi = {10.1093/gerona/56.12.M761},
number = {12},
journal = {The Journals of Gerontology Series A: Biological Sciences and Medical Sciences},
author = {Perell, Karen L. and Nelson, Audrey and Goldman, Ronald L. and Luther, Stephen L. and Prieto-Lewis, Nicole and Rubenstein, Laurence Z.},
}
\end{filecontents}
\begin{document}
\listoftables
\begin{table}[!ht]

\caption{Characteristics assessed in {\protect\NoHyper\citet{perell_fall_2001}\protect\endNoHyper}}
\label{tab:PerrellAssesment}
\end{table}

\nocite{*}
\bibliographystyle{IEEEtranSN}
\bibliography{refs}

\end{document}


Maybe you want to use the optional argument of caption:

 \caption[Characteristics assessed in {\protect\NoHyper\citet{perell_fall_2001}\protect\endNoHyper}]{Characteristics assessed in \citet{perell_fall_2001}}


Next hint: Use \label immediately after \caption.
