# How can I cite one ref in another reference?

I would like to know how can I make a citation like this:

(autor1, 2000 in autor2, 2010)

Is it possible in LaTeX without changing the format of all other citations?

• Do you want this format? You can use an option to the reference using \cite[\cite{...}]{...} – Sigur Mar 30 '13 at 0:05
• Are you using natbib? – Gonzalo Medina Mar 30 '13 at 0:38
• That options is not what Im looking for... there are no other way? – Ibau Mar 30 '13 at 0:40
• yes Im using natbib – Ibau Mar 30 '13 at 0:41
• Then, please see my answer below. – Gonzalo Medina Mar 30 '13 at 0:43

If you are using natbib, to get the exact format you described, you can use \citetext and \citealp:

\begin{filecontents*}{xyzbiblio.bib}
title = "The {C}omprehensive {TeX} {A}rchive {N}etwork ({CTAN})",
year = "1993",
journal = "TUGBoat",
volume = "14",
number = "3",
pages = "342--351",
url=" www.ctan.org"
}

@book{knuth79,
author = "Donald E. Knuth",
title = "{TeX} and Metafont, New Directions in Typesetting",
year = "1979",
publisher = "American Mathematical Society and Digital Press",
}
\end{filecontents*}

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{natbib}
