I found a paper in a top journal in my area here. I have a question regarding the inconsistency in citation displaying. For example, somewhere they use (author year), somewhere they use author (year) within a single paper cited as below:
The breakdown of collusive activities that involve higher prices and restricted output is likely to result in the expansion of production. It might also lead to technological change: colluding firms have fewer incentives to innovate, especially when they face little threat of external competition (Vives 2008)
Indeed, Xu (2012) examines the effect of higher import penetration (instrumented by tariff cuts and exchange rate changes) on leverage, and finds that leverage drops even controlling for current profitability.
I am using Mendeley (Mendeley-Desktop-1.19.8-win32). When I cite a paper, it will display as (author year) automatically as below:
If what the author did above is right, how should I modify my Mendeley to make a similar display? It is possible to manually adjust the reference display for every single citation, but this doesn't seem to be an efficient approach.
