A clear case of rtfm. Do you have a file natbib.cfg? If so, either remove it, 
of load the package as indicated below. round should be default, but for some 
reason it isn't. In that case: force it. 


No need to use the harvard styles (which have many side effects) and you 
retain the option to (easily) switch to a different style. There are more 
options (what to do with multiple citations at once, etc.).

Take care,
