Hi Joel,

There are a range of bib styles you can use. Depends really on what format for referencing you are required to apply.

For example I do that with apacite.

The problem is that sometimes there is a specific  bst file which must be used, but natbib uses its own bst files (plainnat etc.). I don't need author-year style citations, but just the authors' name, so something like:
