I am trying to give multiple citations with page numbers like

(Stallings, 2010, p.324; Tanenbaum, 2009, pp.17-18)

The best method seems to me in latex is:

[1, p. 324; 2, pp. 17-18]

I can do only the result of this:

\cite[p. 324]{stallings2010}, \cite[pp. 17--18]{tanenbaum2009}

but it gives

[1, p. 324], [2, pp. 17-18]

Is there any other and better possibility? Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to TeX.SX! You have to use another citing style. Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – user31729 Jan 10 '15 at 16:44
  • May the document class files for AISB2008 be downloaded from aisb.org.uk/convention/aisb08/download.html, or should one use a different source? – Mico Jan 10 '15 at 17:16

You could load the natbib package and use that package's \citealp macro as follows:

[\citealp[p.~324]{stallings2010}; \citealp[pp.~17--18]{tanenbaum2009}]

enter image description here

To achieve this look, you should load the natbib package with the options square and numbers.
