I need to remove parentheses around year in bibliography. I am using apacite.

My setup:


Current version:

Callenbach, E. (2002). The Gleaners and I 

Desired version:

Callenbach, E. 2002. The Gleaners and I

Is there any way to format my citations like this?

You can remove the parentheses by redefining the \BBOP and \BBCP macros, as described on p. 33 of the apacite documentation. This needs to be done wrapped in \AtBeginDocument.

    Author = {Ferdinand de Saussure},
    Origyear = {1916},
    Publisher = {Payot},
    Title = {Cours de Linguistique G{\'e}n{\'e}rale},
    Year = {1995}}
