This is currently my bib file but when I try to use \parentcite it gives an undefined control sequence. I'm guessing my bib file is wrong in someway but I can't see where. Any help would be appreciated.

  • It should be \parencite, not \parentcite. ("paren" for "parenthesis") – Torbjørn T. May 18 '17 at 19:53
  • It's \parencite, not \parentcite. – Sergei Golovan May 18 '17 at 19:55
  • @TorbjørnT. just a note "parent" could stand for "parenthesis" too :P – Moriambar May 18 '17 at 19:55

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the error is due to a typo: \parentcite instead of \parencite. – CarLaTeX May 18 '17 at 20:01
  • @Moriambar Not really, "paren" is a common abbreviation (en.wiktionary.org/wiki/paren#English), while "parent" is a mother/father. – Torbjørn T. May 18 '17 at 20:02
