[Tex/LaTex] Change the comma separator to colon between the year and the page in citation


I am new to latex so I would appreciate some help. I am following Harvard referencing style as my reference style. I am trying to configure my natbib package so that it separates the year and the referencing pages with a colon and not comma. For example, currently this code:


produces this:

(Bell,  2005,  23).

Which is confusing. I am trying to produce the following style:

(Bell, 2005: 23)

Any advice please?

You can change these parameters with the \setcitestyle macro, as described in ยง2.9 of the natbib documentation.

\setcitestyle{notesep={: }}
