# Referencing Style

My current references/bibliography at the end are in the style of:

Kenneth J. Arrow, Leonid Hurwicz, and Hirofumi Uzawa. Constraint qualifications in maximization problems. Naval Research Logistics Quarterly, 8:175–191, 1961.

I'm trying to change it to:

Arrow KJ, Hurwicz L, Uzara H (1961) Constraint qualifications in maximization problems. Naval Research Logistics Quarterly, 8:175–191.

Any help (or advice for a more suitable referencing style). I like the citation style I have at the minute.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@article{ahu61,
author={Arrow, Kenneth J. and Leonid Hurwicz and Hirofumi Uzawa},
title={Constraint qualifications in maximization problems},
journal={Naval Research Logistics Quarterly},
volume={8},
year = {1961},
pages = {175-191}
}
\end{filecontents}

\usepackage[round]{natbib}

\begin{document}
Lorem ipsum dolor \citep{ahu61} sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.
\nocite{*}
\bibliographystyle{plainnat}
\bibliography{\jobname}{}
\end{document}

• Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. Your example contains not the bibliography item ahua61. – strpeter Apr 30 '14 at 8:50
• Brian -- I've edited your addition of a .bib file so that it gets written automatically via a filecontents environment. It's a convenient trick when producing MWEs for bibliography related matters. – Paul Stanley Apr 30 '14 at 9:11

Looks like a typical author-year style.

Have a look at Chicago, Harvard and apa styles. Very close: apa and apalike.
