The closest I have gotten is using natbib package and authordate1, but I get a "&" instead of "and" separating the two authors.

Does anyone know how to fix it? Is there any other approach?

  • Please add a minimal working example with bibliography (MWEB), showing us what you've tried so far. – CarLaTeX Mar 23 '18 at 6:28
  • Instead of looking far and wide for an already-existing bib style which may (or may not) satisfy one's exact formatting needs, it's much more efficient to run the makebst utility, which is part of the custom-bib package. This utility (type latex makebst at a commmand prompt) presents a set of menu-driven questions with multiple-choice answers, and its output is a custom bst (bibliography style) file. The questions and possible choices are pretty much self-explanatory. When in doubt, choose the default answer. – Mico Mar 23 '18 at 6:41

To change the & in the authordate1 style into a and, search for the file authordate1.bst and save it under a new name, for example myauthordate.bst, in the directory of your document.

In this file you have to search for

FUNCTION {format.names}

The code in this function is responsible for formatting the names, so if you replace

                { ", \& " * t * }                           %  Butcher, pages


                { ", and " * t * }                           %  Butcher, pages

you get a and instead of a &.

Of course you have to use \bibliographystyle{myauthordate} to actually use the customized style.

On the other hand you should mind Micos comment: If can be much easier to create a new bibliography style with the makebst utility (run latex makebst on the command line and follow the assistant) than finding and patching an existing one.
