    Try style=authoryear (because you've told you want to use it) or style=authortitle (because you've already used it in the shown code) instead of style=nature,citestyle=authortitle. If this does not help, please show a minimal working example with bibliography or a minimal working example using biblatex-examples.bib.

  • @cabohah Apologies, I am citing by authortitle. I just corrected my OP. Your suggestion of style=authortitle worked perfectly. Feb 4 at 14:31
  • @cabohah Do you want to type up a quick answer here, so the question can be marked as solved?

  • @moewe What kind of answer do you expect to a scribbled down question with no MWE and no substance? Would be: "Don't mix cite style authortitle with a numeric style like nature to be used for the bibliography. Instead simply use style=authortitle." enough for an answer? I have been explained, that answers should always contain a full example. But I have little desire to hew a complete example from my fingers, even though the questioner did not feel like giving one, despite explicitly asking.

  • @cabohah Sounds OK to me. If the question doesn't have an MWE and can be answered without an MWE, I don't see why one would have to make up one just for the answer. Especially when the answer is clear without an example.

Don't mix citestyle=authortitle with a numeric style like nature to be used for the bibliography. Instead simply use style=authortitle to have the same non-numeric style as style for the bibliography and the cites.
