I want to generate the APA style reference in et al. format as shown under which I got from endnote… But when try in LaTeX I am getting all authors name typed up as shown below…

Here I am attaching my .tex file, .bib file and output file…

Output from my word document by using endnote

bla bla bla bla (Powers, Young et al. 2003 ; Heitjan 2011), bla bla bla (Fleischhacker, Derks et al. 2012; Nakash, Hutton et al. 2008) and social science studies(Green, Murphy et al. 2000; Hamano Yamaski et al. 2011)

Output from my LaTeX file

bla bla bla bla (Powers, Young, Russell, & Pachana, 2003; Heitjan, 2011) , bla bla bla (Fleischhacker, Derks, & Kahn, 2012; Nakash, Hutton, Lamb, Gates, & Fisher, 2008) and social science studies (Green, Murphy, & Snyder, 2000; Hamano et al., 2011)

My .tex file

\documentclass[12 pt]{article}

\begin{document}
\par bla bla bla bla ~\cite{Powers03, Heitjan11} , bla bla bla ~\cite{Fleischhacker12, Nakash08} and social science studies~\cite{Green00, Hamano11}

  • Do you want a citation style where you show the names of the first two authors whenever there are four or more authors? That's what your endnote examples seem to be suggesting. – Mico Sep 29 '13 at 7:09

Though i am having trouble reading your question, From what i have understood, Did you try using apacite package in your document's preamble ? Please check also the natbib package which has a description to achieve the option you want using \citep{ref} in the wikibooks of latex. One working example:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{natbib}
%opening
\title{}
\author{}

\begin{document}

This information was taken from~\citep{goossens93}.

\bibliography{test}
\bibliographystyle{plainnat}
\end{document}

And the test.bib contains:

@Book{goossens93,
    author    = "Michel Goossens and Frank Mittelbach and Alexander Samarin",
    title     = "The LaTeX Companion",
    year      = "1993",
    publisher = "Addison-Wesley",
    address   = "Reading, Massachusetts"
}

And the output it produces:

This information was taken from [Goossens et al., 1993]
