If I were to refer to the work of X et al. [YYYY] several time within a paragraph does one need to write the date every time? It appears to disturb the flow of the writing and reads better without, however I’m unsure of the convention.

I’ve never taken notice either way when reading papers and cannot find an example. Perhaps it is bad form?
