I'm trying to get natbib to display the \bibliographystyle{aaai-named} as this documents shows.

But when I try, I do not get that result there are no square brackets around the author name and author year.

enter image description here

My code:

\documentclass[english, oneside, 12pt]{memoir}

\usepackage[square, authoryear]{natbib}




    title={Development and Comparison of Open Source based Web GIS Frameworks on WAMP and Apache Tomcat Web Servers},
    author={Agrawal, Sonam and Gupta, Rajan Dev},
    journal={Proceedings International Archives of the Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences},

Edit 1: Minimal example was written wrong. It is now updated.

  • You want the \bibliographystyle{aaai-named} but write \bibliographystyle{apalike}. aaai-named is a bibliographystyle different. – Romain Picot Sep 22 '15 at 11:28
  • You are correct, @RomainPicot - that happens when you create minimal examples and still experiments with what could be wrong. It is now updated, but still not succeeding – Rasmus Bækgaard Sep 22 '15 at 11:38
  • Does natbib should be used? I can provide an answer without. – Romain Picot Sep 22 '15 at 11:39
  • No, if you can make the same type of citation and the correct form of \bibliographystyle, it will be great. – Rasmus Bækgaard Sep 22 '15 at 11:41
  • My bad I've made a mistake and used apalike and not aaai-named :/ – Romain Picot Sep 22 '15 at 11:44

Without natbib and using apalike:

enter image description here


\documentclass[english, oneside, 12pt]{book}


  • @RasmusBækgaard you're welcome – Romain Picot Sep 22 '15 at 11:59
