Formats of citation

Hi! Currently I am trying to use Rmarkdown to prepare a manuscript. However, I don't know how to generate a citation like Henry's (1985) or Henry's (1985, 1986). The only two formats I know are Henry (1985) (@Henry1985) and (Henry, 1985) ([@Henry1985]). Can anyone help me fix this issue?

Furthermore, when I try to cite two papers by the same author which were published in different time, the dates are reversed (e.g. Henry (1986, 1985)). Is this a common problem or is it because I am using a specific template ( Elsevier template from R package rticle)? Thank you in advance!

I don't know about citation in Latex well, but I know that by default, Rmarkdown will use pandoc citeproc to process citation written in pandoc markdown. (like explained here https://bookdown.org/yihui/bookdown/citations.html and Pandoc Manual)

When you output is pdf with Latex, you can use a latex package to process citations. see https://bookdown.org/yihui/rmarkdown/pdf-document.html#latex-packages-for-citations

Maybe natbib or biblatex will offer more customization ? :thinking:

Hope it helps

Thank you so much for your prompt reply! I will check them immediately.
