How to add a citation
From inside a LaTeX block in the Authorea beta editor, click on the cite button.


A citation tool opens up. Search for the paper by author name, title, keyword, and/or year of publication in one of our databases. When you find it, cite it and this will create a citation in your text such as \cite{Einstein1905} , which will render into a citation like (Einstein 1905) and a reference at the bottom of the doc upon saving.

Advanced citation management
If you want to use textual and parenthetical citations, you can do so by altering the \cite command as follows:

\citet{Einstein1905} produces Einstein (1905)
\citep{Einstein1905} produces (Einstein, 1905)
\citep[See e.g.][for a nice review]{Einstein1905} produces (See e.g. Einstein, 1905, for a nice review)`
\cite{Einstein1905,Einstein1922} produces (Einstein 1905, Einstein 1922)`

If you are using LaTeXML for Latex support and/or want your textual and parenthetical citations to also render nicely in the exported PDF, you have to include the following lines in your header.tex file (create it from the folder view, if it does not exist already): \usepackage{natbib} `\bibliographystyle{plainnat}`
