I'd like biblatex to cite like this:
- One author papers: "Wood 2007"
- Two author papers: "Wood & Newborough 2007"
- Three or more authors: "Wood et al. 2007"
I can't figure out how to get citation styles like "Wood & Newborough 2007" for two author papers. I'm using the authoryear style. (edit: please note that I don't want "Wood; Newborough 2007" but instead I want "Wood & Newborough 2007" or "Wood and Newborough 2007")
maxcitenames=1 satisfies my requirements 1 and 3 but not my requirement 2 because
maxcitenames=1 causes two-author papers to be cited like "Wood et al. 2007" and I want both authors to appear in the citation.
maxcitenames=2 cites two-author papers as, for example, "Wood; Newborough 2007" which is almost what I want. But I don't like the semicolon! If I could replace the
";" with an
" &" for two author papers then I'd be happy!
(By the way, just in case this affects the solution: I like having
uniquelist=false so that biblatex disambiguates citations of different papers by the same first author in the same year by adding a letter after the date like "Wood 2007a", "Wood 2007b")
