Using the natbib package, in Lyx, I would like to have intext (aka inline) citations in the format of

(Angrist, Lang, and Oreopoulos 2009)

Default appears to be

(Angrist, Lang and Oreopoulos, 2009)

and by adding to my preamble: \bibpunct{(}{)}{;}{a}{}{,}

I can achieve:

(Angrist, Lang and Oreopoulos 2009)

but I am at a loss of how to get the oxford comma that I am looking for.

    Which bibliography style do you use? It's the bibliography style that determines whether or not an Oxford comma is used. natbib only controls whether or not there's a comma between the author block and the year in the citation call-out, but not the presence of commas within the author block.

Which \bibliographystyle are you using? It works fine with unsrtnat.
