I'm starting a redacting an article for my career. I have created my database of references in a .bib file, Mendeley exports my reference list. When I cite a reference Mendeley put (Author, year) but I would like to cite like this "according to Author (year)" as in the picture below.

How can I achieve this citation style?

    Welcome to TeX.SX. Mendeley is unimportant here, it is how you do your bibliography with LaTeX. Have a look at biblatex and biber

  • Assuming you're using BibTeX, which citation management package(s) do you load (if any), and which bibliography style do you employ?

With the help of natbib package \usepackage{natbib}

\citet{Erdos65} will give your desired output. The folowing are the list of other options and also go through this link https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/More_Bibliographies

\citet{Erdos65} will produce Erdős et al. (1965)
\citet[chapter 2]{Erdos65}  produces    Erdős et al. (1965, chapter 2)
\citet[pp. 10-12]{Erdos65}  produces    Erdős et al. (1965, pp. 10-12)
\citet[see][chap. 2]{Erdos65}   produces    Erdős et al. (see 1965, chap. 2)

\citep{Erdos65} produces    (Erdős et al. 1965)
\citep[chapter 2]{Erdos65}  produces    (Erdős et al. 1965, chapter 2)
\citep[pp. 10-12]{Erdos65}  produces    (Erdős et al. 1965, pp. 10-12)
\citep[see][chap. 2]{Erdos65}   produces    (see Erdős et al. 1965, chap. 2)
\citep[e.g.][]{Erdos65} produces    (e.g. Erdős et al. 1965)
