I need to customize the author-year citation in
biblatex for a template at work. Right now
biblatex cites like this:
Ruschmeyer u. a. 1995, S. 123
They way I was told it needs to cite is:
[Ruschmeyer u. a. 1995, S. 123]
This seems pretty simple and I thought it would be done in a second, but after reading through the
biblatex documentation for the second time, I still don't really have a clue.
An alternative to lockstep's solution is to redefine the high-level parentheses commands. With the default option setting
parentracker=true, these are context-sensitive; nested parentheses may be set as brackets, depending on the nesting level.
