# Brackets in citing-style? [duplicate]

I have the following LaTeX code:

\documentclass[a4paper,
12pt,
bibliography=totoc,
index=totoc,
abstracton,
]{scrreprt}
\usepackage{latexsym}
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
\usepackage[ngerman,english]{babel}

\usepackage [round,authoryear] {natbib}

\usepackage[bookmarksopen,hyperfootnotes=false,pdftitle=test, pdfauthor=test,pdfsubject=test]{hyperref}

\begin{document}
Here comes a cite to literature\footnote{\citep[p. 53]{LathamWatkins:2011}.}.
\bibliographystyle{autorjahrdidiDE}
\bibliography{Bibref}

\end{document}


In my Bibre.bib I have the following entry:

   @Misc{LathamWatkins:2011,
author =       {Latham\&Watkins},
title =        "Regulatory Capital Reform under Basel 3",
note = "available: \nolinkurl{http://www.garp.org/media/583507/regulatorycapitalreformbaseliii_nicolaides032311.pdf} (access on 05.03.2013, creation 24.03.2011)",
year = "2011",
}


This creates a cite entry at the bottom of the page like this:

^1(Latham&Watkins, 2011, p. 53)

I do not want to have the brackets! What do I have to change, that the brackets () disappear?

EDIT (regarding the first answer): \cite does not change anything, \citet looks like the following:

But is it possible to have no brackets at all? This would be quite important to me, since I am setting an important document and I would prefer to have no brackets at all.

If you do not want the brackets, use \cite instead of \citep. –  Corentin Aug 7 '13 at 17:28
Note this applies to other natbib bibliography styles such as plainnat, rather than just autorjahrdidiDE. –  Andrew Swann Aug 8 '13 at 8:19
This has been asked at tex.stackexchange.com/q/102532/15925 before. –  Andrew Swann Aug 8 '13 at 8:22

\citealt instead of \citep, \cite etc. will do it. See this reference sheet or the wikibook.

An alternative method, and what I would use for consistency throughout the document is the specify \bibpunct{}{}{,}{a}{,}{,}. For details see the wikibook entry but the first 2 empty braces specify that no "bracket" is to be used.

nice, thanks! . –  Jen Bohold Aug 8 '13 at 8:17
one further question: How can I fastly change all those commands to \citealt, I am using a large document with a lot of pages? So something like search and substitute with... –  Jen Bohold Aug 8 '13 at 8:18
Ah, I found it :-) –  Jen Bohold Aug 8 '13 at 8:20

Try \cite and \citet instead of \citep. All three commands do different things.

I answered before I noticed @Corentin's comment. Sorry for the duplication. –  Tom Aug 7 '13 at 17:30
\cite does not change anything, but \citet changes the brackets into Latham&Watkins (2011, p. 53). But is it possible to have no brackets at all? –  Jen Bohold Aug 8 '13 at 8:06
\cite is either \citet or \citep depending on the citation mode. –  Andrew Swann Aug 8 '13 at 8:17
I hadn't realised that they are equivalent in natbib. I use biblatex myself. Try \citealt and \citealp, which in natbib are \citet and \citep without parentheses respectively. –  Tom Aug 8 '13 at 16:29
