Thanks for the pointers; the citations themselves look much more like 
what my supervisor wants.

I've tried natbib and apalike, and I get an odd sort of problem (in all 
these styles) in the reference list at the end, where the label of the 
entry is superimposed on the name of  the author. I've attached a page 
from the refs as a postscript, so you can see what I mean. It's very 
strange-looking, and I have no idea why it happens.
