[Tex/LaTex] Full name and year as BibTeX key


I'd like to reference BibTeX sources with full name and year, e. g. [Adams1979]. Is there an easy way to to this?

Best Answer

Take a look at the natbib or biblatex packages. Either should be able to do what you want.

Edit: Take a look at \setcitestyle for natbib.

Edit 2: Here's a complete example:


And the .bib:

        author = {Foo Adams},
        year = 1979,
        title = {Test},
        journal = {Test},
