citet giving blank author!

Postby glenton on Mon Mar 8th, 2010

Hi All

I'm writing a document, and using natbib to make a bibliographic reference with the author's name using \citet. Unfortunately, it seems to be returning a blank for author.

Here's a minimal working example:
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{report}

\usepackage[numbers]{natbib}
\bibliographystyle{unsrt}

\begin{document}

Following \citet{SEWTHA} we will evaluate everything in terms of etc.

\bibliography{MWEsus}

\end{document
}


with MWEsus.bib as follows:
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
@BOOK{SEWTHA,
author = {MacKay, David J. C.},
title={Sustainable Energy -- without the hot air},
year={2008},
publisher={UIT Cambridge},
note={ISBN 978-0-9544529-3-3. Available free online from www.withouthotair.com},
}


The pdf is a single line with:
"Following [1] we will evaluate everything in terms of etc."

I'm using Ubuntu and Texmaker. There's no errors either in the pdflatex or the bibtex running. And if I do a normal dvi producing run, the same omission occurs.

For some reason it returns a blank space for author. Anyone have any idea why?! Or where I could look for help.

Many thanks

Hi,

replace

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\bibliographystyle{unsrt}


with

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\bibliographystyle{unsrtnat}
1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144,233,...
