Since you don't actually say what the problem is, it's very hard to
help. Also, particular bits of latex code don't work or not work
within TeXShop, since TeXShop is just an editor.

What do you think doesn't work?

\citep gives you a citation that should look like [Jones, 1999] while
\citet should give you a citation that should give you the same as
\cite (which you say is working.)

file or your bibliography style. (There is no natbib bibliography
style per se, just bst files that work with natbib.  Perhaps you
meant to use the plainnat style?

Be more explicit in describing the problem, and someone might be able to help.
