I have a bibtex list of references and i would like to get the authors' names from a specific entry in my .bib file. Is there a command for that?

Something like \getauthorname{<bibentry>}? –  Werner Feb 5 '13 at 1:44

You could use the natbib package:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{natbib}

\begin{docuemnt}

\citeauthor{smith90}

\bibliography{bibliography.bib}
\end{document}
