I have asked about a specific referencing style and was recommended to use biblatex. I was given a nice answer author order in plainnat

but then I would like to make minor changes:

  1. The "et al." just in citing, but in references I want full author list for a paper
  2. bold volume number
  3. delete the "In:" preceding the journal name

I would like to know if I can add simple things to the code of the answer :

For (1) use the package options maxcitenames=3,maxbibnames=99. See also my updated answer to Biblatex: displaying all authors of multi-author works in the bibliography.

For (2) add the following to your preamble:


For (3) see Suppress "In:" biblatex.
