Different render when citing with/without brackets

edited October 26 in General


I'm noticing the rending looks different depending on whether I cite with or without brackets.

For example:

@bakerPerformanceBasedPlanning2016 renders as (Baker, Siper, and Gleeson 2016).

[@bakerPerformanceBasedPlanning2016] renders as (D. C. Baker, Sipe, and Gleeson 2016).

For some reason the bracket citation is including the first authors initials in the in-text citation.

Is there a way to correct this?



  • It is always recommended to explicitly use square brackets. Why the rendering difference, I do not know.
