I am struggling a bit to figure out how to present the reference as I wish. Here is an example, this is my .bib file

author = {Callaghan, David P. and Ahmadi, Afshin and Nielsen, Peter},
doi = {10.1007/s00348-011-1183-2},
isbn = {0034801111832},
issn = {07234864},
journal = {Experiments in Fluids},
number = {6},
pages = {1657--1671},
title = {{Transient wave behaviour over an underwater sliding hump from experiments and analytical and numerical modelling}},
volume = {51},
year = {2011}
}

This is how it appears on the report itself enter image description here

and how it appears on the reference list enter image description here

however, what I really want

  1. In the report, I want the cite to just show the first author like

Callaghan etc 2011.

  1. In the reference list, I want it arranged this way

Callaghan, David P., Ahmadi Afshin , and Nielsen Peter(2011). “Transient wave behaviour over an underwater sliding hump from experiments and analytical and numerical modelling”. In: Experiments in Fluids 51.6, pp. 1657–1671.

All authors should be sorted as last name, first name. (Actually, only the first author is sorted that way.)

Below is my biblatex entry

\usepackage[
backend=biber,
natbib=true,
hyperref=true,
citestyle=authoryear, 
style=authoryear-ibid,  
uniquename=false,
doi=false,
isbn=false,
url=false
]{biblatex}
\setlength\bibitemsep{\baselineskip}


\usepackage{float}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\hypersetup{
     colorlinks   = true,
     citecolor    = Blue
}
\usepackage{filecontents}
\addbibresource{MyCollection.bib}

Is there anyway to fix it?

You want the options

mincitenames=1,
maxcitenames=1,
maxbibnames=999,

and then

\DeclareNameAlias{sortname}{family-given}

Note finally that in

citestyle=authoryear, 
style=authoryear-ibid,  

the citestyle specification is superfluous, it is overridden by style=authoryear-ibid.

  • Thanks for the reply. Don't you mind me asking another question? I have some references with curly brackets there, I am not sure how to get rid of, a example like Sobey, R. J. and Liang, H.-B. (1987). “Complex Envelope Identification of Wave Groups”. In: Coastal Engineering 1986. American Society of Civil Engineers ({ASCE}). The ASCE with curly brackets I want get rid of.

  • @ZhifangHu That is a new question. Please ask a new question about that with a proper MWE and the example bib entry.
