Sorry, just picked up on this thread.

The layout you describe looks a lot like APA to me. Is that what you want?

If it is use apacite (this conforms the APA 5th style requirements, but lacks
decent electronic source formats):


Alternatively natbib provides a range of styles that may fit the bill. Some
people prefer to use it instead of the APA styles.
