I use pandoc to convert a mardown file into latex. for that I am using the [@author_journal_year] format to grab citations automatically. But as far as I see there doesn't seem to be a way to tell latex to merge citations when needed. For instance if using subtext numbers, one would expect citations to appear as 1-3 instead of 123. Is there a way to tell pandoc to merge the citations into a single block?

    Wouldn't that be done in the .latex template file? I.e., loading natbib or biblatex with the appropriate options? – jon Feb 4 '16 at 4:27

Using semicolons in between identifiers instead of writing them side by side does it eg: [@author_journal_year; @author2_journal2_year2]
