I have this code for the bibliography in my Latex document.

   \documentclass[11pt, a4paper, twoside, openright]{memoir}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{amsmath,amsfonts,amsthm,amssymb} 
\usepackage[protrusion=true,expansion=true]{microtype} 
\usepackage[dvips]{graphicx}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage[italian, english]{babel}
\usepackage[babel]{csquotes}

\usepackage{lmodern}


\usepackage[
           backend=biber,
           bibstyle=authoryear,
           citestyle=authoryear-comp,
           natbib=true,
           firstinits=true,

    %           labeldate=true
    ]{biblatex}  

\bibliography{./biblatex/tesi2015.bib}

\usepackage{xcolor}
\definecolor{citeblue}{RGB}{46,48,146}  
\definecolor{linkblue}{RGB}{0,51,153}   
\usepackage{hyperref}

\begin{document}

\chapter{Introduzione}

\textcites{mcclymont2008characterization}{mcclymont2008visualization}{mcclymont2009fault}{mcclymont2010shallow}

\defbibfilter{allbooks}{
  type=book or
  type=inbook
}

\printbibheading[title={Bibliography},heading=bibliography]
\printbibliography[filter=allbooks,heading=subbibliography,title={Book References}]
\printbibliography[nottype=book,nottype=inbook,heading=subbibliography,title={Papers}]


\end{document}

When I do multiple citation like this:

\textcites{mcclymont2008characterization}{mcclymont2008visualization}{mcclymont2009fault}{mcclymont2010shallow}

Or this:

\textcite{mcclymont2008characterization, mcclymont2008visualization, mcclymont2009fault, mcclymont2010shallow}

I should obtain

McClymont et al. (2008a, 2008b, 2009, 2010).

But what I see in the text is this citation:

Without parenthesis in the latest three years.

Can someone help me? I'm trying to solve this problem since three days :D

This is the .bib entry:

  • \textcites (with an s)? – Bernard Jun 18 '15 at 9:02
  • create a complete example which shows the behaviour. With the biblatex example bib and an up-to-date TL2015 I get with \textcitesthe output Aristotle (1907, 1929, 1968) – user2478 Jun 18 '15 at 9:15
  • You can use \textcite{key1,key2,key3} or \textcites{key1}{key2}{key3} in the same way. – Igor Jun 18 '15 at 9:16

The output is correct. You have three different authors which will printed as three different cites:

enter image description here

only for identical authors you'll get something like foo et al (1008, 2009)

  • Thank you so much. I thought that with the same first-author name I would have got a unique citation with different years in any case. – Igor Jun 18 '15 at 11:34
