# pandoc converting tex to docx with references - not enclosed in parentheses / brackets

I am trying to convert a pretty basic latex file to docx format using pandoc and am having a slight issue with the in-text citation not being enclosed in parentheses ()

tex doc minimal example

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry}
\usepackage{apacite}

\begin{document}
\section{Introduction}

\cite{hendrickson_resource_2000}

\end{document}


And the bib file looks like:

@article{hendrickson_resource_2000,
title = {Resource use and environmental emissions of {US} construction sectors},
volume = {126},
issn = {0733-9364},
number = {1},
journal = {Journal of Construction Engineering and Management},
author = {Hendrickson, Chris and Horvath, Arpad},
year = {2000},
pages = {38--44}
},


Using an APA citation style, such as: https://github.com/citation-style-language/styles/blob/master/apa-5th-edition.csl I would expect that the in-text citation would be:

(Hendrickson & Horvath, 2000)


Hendrickson & Horvath (2000)


I have tried multiple conversion paths, styles and command line options and am not getting any change in the in-text citation despite changes in the overall reference list / bibliography.

My current attempt is:

pandoc -o test.docx test.tex --bibliography References.bibtex --csl apa5.csl


How do I get the intended enclosed in-text citation?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Instead of \cite{hendrickson_resource_2000}, perhaps you could try \citep{hendrickson_resource_2000}?
