[Tex/LaTex] Multiple Citations without outer parentheses


Using the AAAI style included here and detailed here, when I cite several authors like so:


I get:

(Xauthor, Xyear; Yauthor, Yyear; Zauthor, Zyear)

when I cite like so:


I get:

XauthorYear; YauthorYear; ZauthorYear

Is there a way to cite without those outer parens? So that I can achieve

Yada yada yada (e.g., Xauthor, Xyear; Yauthor, Yyear; Zauthor, Zyear)

instead of

Yada yada yada (e.g., (Xauthor, Xyear; Yauthor, Yyear; Zauthor, Zyear))


Yada yada yada (e.g., (XauthorYear; YauthorYear; ZauthorYear))

The only solution I can find is to do

\citeauthor{xcitation} \citeyear{xcitation}, \citeauthor{ycitation}  \citeyear{ycitation}, \citeauthor{zcitation} \citeyear{zcitation}

But it seems like there has to be a more efficient way to accomplish this.

(NOTE: As mentioned in the comments below, the solution accepted for this answer involves using natbib, a package explicitly forbidden when submitting to the AAAI conference. If you actually need to submit a document to the AAAI conference, this page does not contain an answer for you.)

Best Answer

You can use natbib package by adding in your preamble:


and then, according to natbib documentation when you use:

\citeauthor*{jon90} --> Jones, Baker, and Williams

\citet*{jon90} --> Jones, Baker, and Williams (1990)

\citep*{jon90} --> (Jones, Baker, and Williams, 1990)

\citealt{jon90} --> Jones, Baker, and Williams, 1990
