I am using natbib package. I would like to control bib style in single command \numberedref.

My requirement is if the \numberedref command is available in the tex file the output is shown in numbered reference list all citation link should be appeared in numbered. If the command is not available by default, author year reference should be shown. This will happen without changing the reference list items like \bibitem[Sabatinis et al., 1999]{Sabatini:1999}

But I don't know the idea how to control the user defined single command \numberedref

My tex file below mentioned:

\bibpunct[, ]{(}{)}{;}{a}{\color{gray},}{,}

     \gdef\@editor{\raggedright \textbf{Edited by:}\newline #1}}

     \gdef\@reviewer{\raggedright \textbf{Reviewed by:}\newline #1}}

     \gdef\@metanote{\raggedright  #1}}

       \raggedright  #1}}

     \gdef\@abstract{\fontsize{9.5}{11.5}\selectfont #1}}

     \gdef\@keywords{\textbf{Keywords:} #1}}

     \gdef\@firstpara{\raggedright  #1}}

apptotikzsetting={\tikzset{mdfframetitlebackground/.append style={%
shade,left color=white, right color=black}}},

\mdtheorem[style=theoremstyle]{keybox}{KEY CONCEPT}

Patterning in Arabidopsis root development is coordinated via a localized auxin concentration maximum in the root tip (\citealp{Sabatini:1999}), requiring the regulated expression of speciÞc genes. This auxin gradient has been hypothesized to be sink-driven (\citealp{Friml:2002}) and com- putational modeling suggests that auxin efßux carrier activity may be sufÞcient to generate the gradient in the absence of auxin biosynthesis in the root.

Change author year to numbered bib

  • This sounds like a job for biblatex and its \autocite feature. – Johannes_B Dec 25 '14 at 11:31
  • Please provide the sample for this. I don't know how to implement the above logic – Vetri Dec 25 '14 at 15:06
  • I am unable to change the \citealp{} and thebibliography environment. Any logic is there – Vetri Dec 25 '14 at 15:38
  • You seem to define a userinterface for authors to publish in a journal. Package biblatex provides package options in kay-value syntax. You can choose the style of citations to be numeric(which is the default) or authoryear. biblatex works best in conjunction with biber, a modern alternative to classic bibtex. <- If the bibliographical data is stored in an accompanying database. I switched to biblatex a while ago, so i am a bit rusty with natbib. – Johannes_B Dec 26 '14 at 8:47
  • I think with natbib, the style of citations is controlled by a package option as well. Can you add to the question, what you mean by changing citealp and thebibliography? – Johannes_B Dec 26 '14 at 8:49
