Of course that information is not enough to properly give a full bibliography style, but you can get the label format easily with biblatex. You will need the options minalphanames=3, maxalphanames=4, maxbibnames=999 and then \DeclareLabelalphaTemplate{ \labelelement{ \field[final]{shorthand} \field{label} ...

here is the bibtex entry for one of the items in the bibliography of the cited article, as delivered by mathscinet. the tags for the various elements are the "official" ones used with amsplain, but not all are recognized (see below). zbl is not included in the mathscinet database, nor is arxiv, but ZBL and ARXIV would be appropriate tags. amsplain does ...

You have to create a bibliography database (a file with extension .bib), say mybiblio.bib. Its contents will be the same as your \bibitems, in a normalised form. I suggest to use a dedicated tool for this task, such as JabRef, in which you only have to fill the relevant fields. This being done, you have to tell latex to incorporate this bibliography in your ...

With an current MiKTeX 2.9 I have no problems compiling the following code (including your bib entry). MWE: \RequirePackage{filecontents} \begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib} @Book{Goossens, author = {Goossens, Michel and Mittelbach, Frank and Samarin, Alexander}, title = {The LaTeX Companion}, edition = {1}, publisher = ...

The bibliography style plain can only generate numeric-style citation call-outs. Since you're using the natbib citation management package, you should (a) use the plainnat bibliography style, which can produce both numeric-style and authoryear-style citation call-outs, and (b) provide the option authoryear when loading the natbib package: ...

Such things are typically added using the optional argument of the citation command. You don't say anything about your setup, here is an example with natbib: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{filecontents} \begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib} @article{mohanan1986b, ISSN = {00243892, 15309150}, URL = {http://www.jstor.org/stable/4178405}, author = {K. P. ...

Rather than implementing this feature in biblatex, one could simply do the following: \newcommand{\urlcite}[3]{\footfullcite{#1}, p.~\href{#2}{#3}} This is a fairly 'dumb' command, of course, and you lose out a lot of the clever functionality of biblatex's citation commands. However, in this case, it is not a big loss because: we know that the citation ...

The formatting of the names used in the citation call-outs is governed not by the natbib package but by the bibliography style that's in use. I'm assuming that you'll want to show the first names of all authors, rather than just those of of selected authors. While you're at it, I'll also assume that you'd want to show any "junior" name components, if ...
