I´m using natbib with the apalike style. When using the short citation

\citet[p. 22]{Testauthor98}

it shows me

Testauthor (1998, p. 22)

What do i have to do/change in order to get the following result?

Testauthor (1998), p. 22

You could write (using ~ for a non-breaking space)

\citet{Testauthor98}, p.~22

(Obviously, this solution is not suited for reformatting large existing documents without changing the document body.)

The large existing document case was already addressed in a post earlier this month. – Audrey Nov 26 '12 at 14:25
