which part of apalike.bst do I have to change to remove authorname bulleting?

The references begins as "[Author, year] Author (year). Paper/Book title..." But I want it to begin as "Author (year) Paper/Book title...".

I want this formatting to apply for all entry types (@article, @book, etc).

No need to change anything in the apalike bibliography style. Just load the natbib package, and the material in square brackets will no longer show up in the typeset bibliography.

  • This is very simple to execute!
