I am trying to send an article written in latex but I have a problem with natbib. Appart that it doesn't like my settings, it puts the citation as:

Ustun and Abbak 2010. Ustun A and Abbak RA (2010) On global and regional spectral evaluation of global geopotential models. J Geophys Eng, 7, 4, 369379.

So, it repits the authors...

Could somebody help me? Regards, Eugenia

My settings are:

\documentclass[smallcondensed]{svjour3}     % onecolumn (ditto)
%
\smartqed  % flush right qed marks, e.g. at end of proof
%
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{wrapfig}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{latexsym}
\usepackage{color}
\usepackage{supertabular}
\usepackage{url}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{natbib}
\usepackage{bm}
\usepackage{multirow}
\usepackage{lineno}
%\usepackage{float}
%\restylefloat{table}
\usepackage{placeins}
%

% Insert the name of "your journal" with
 \journalname{Acta Geodaetica et Geophysica}
%
\begin{document}

TTTTtext \cite{ustun} blabla


\bibliographystyle{spbasic}      % basic style, author-year citations


%\bibliographystyle{spmpsci}      % mathematics and physical sciences
%\bibliographystyle{spphys}       % APS-like style for physics
%\bibliography{}   % name your BibTeX data base

% Non-BibTeX users please use
\begin{thebibliography}{}
\bibitem[Ustun and Abbak 2010]{ustun}
Ustun A and Abbak RA (2010) On global and regional spectral evaluation of global geopotential models. J Geophys Eng, 7, 4, 369\-379.


% and use \bibitem to create references. Consult the Instructions

% etc
\end{thebibliography}

\end{document}

    (1) Welcome, (2) natbib is best used with bibtex and external bibliographih data. You are manually filling in the data for thebibliography env. natbib expects the data in \bibitem[...] to be specified in a very specify way, your data does not comply to that specification. – daleif Oct 4 '16 at 14:05

dalief is right. If you still want to keep \bibitem[...], the following will work (borrowed from a .bbl file):

\bibitem[\protect\citeauthoryear{Ustun and Abbak}{Ustun and Abbak}{2010}]{ustun}
Ustun A and Abbak RA (2010) On global and regional spectral evaluation of 
global geopotential models. J Geophys Eng, 7, 4, 369--379.

I would use bibtex as dalief comments. (Also note the pages part. \- is for optional hyphenation.)
