# How do I remove parentheses around a year in the references using biblatex? [duplicate]

I have an issue whereby I would like to get the parentheses removed around the year in the following reference, and a period added after the author list.

For example, I would like to change: "Ambler, Steve and Florian Pelgrin (2010). “Time-consistent control in non-linear models”. In: Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control 34(10), pp. 2215–2228."

to

"Ambler, Steve and Florian Pelgrin. 2010). “Time-consistent control in non-linear models”. In: Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control 34(10), pp. 2215–2228."

Here is the relevant code:

\begin{document}
...
% Bibliography
\usepackage[style=authoryear-comp,%
uniquename=false,%
backend=bibtex,%
maxcitenames=1,%
natbib=true,%
doi=false,%
url=false,%
isbn=false,%
maxnames=20]{biblatex}

\DeclareFieldFormat[]{title}{\MakeCapital{#1}}
\DeclareFieldFormat{year}{}

\AtEveryBibitem{%
\clearfield{day}%
\clearfield{month}%
\clearfield{endday}%
\clearfield{endmonth}%
}
\renewbibmacro*{volume+number+eid}{%
\printfield{volume}%
\printfield{number}%
\printfield{eid}}
\DeclareFieldFormat[article]{number}{\mkbibparens{#1}}

\makeatletter
\newcommand\blx@unitmark{23sp}
%\makeatother

...
\pdfbookmark{References}{sec:references} \printbibliography
...
\end{document}


Any help appreciated!
