I am trying to put commas in the bibliography in between the names of the authors in Latex but it isn't working. Also, I have putted "and" between their names in the bibtex but it didn't work (it is showing me the word and when compiling instead of a comma!) I am using unsrt style. Does anyone have an idea what to do in that case?

@book{Emile,
    title={The River},
    author={Emile Colombos, Rita James and Tom Hardy },
    volume={7},
    year={2000} }

    it needs to be "and" not "," as "," is used to separate name parts, presumably if you got multiple ands as in the output, like "tom and dick and harry" then there was a syntax error in your bib file but hard to guess what is wrong if you show no example. Jun 16, 2018 at 21:36
  • Please make a minimal working example with bibliography (MWEB).

        author={Emile Colombos, Rita James and Tom Hardy },

means a two-author work where the first author has the compound surname "Emile Colombos" and first names "Rita James` as authors can be specified as "David Carlisle" or "Carlisle, David".

You want to specify three authors so:

        author={Emile Colombos and Rita James and Tom Hardy},
