Using an organisation name as an author in BibTeX

BibTeX is great in that it ensures all of the entries are output in the same style. The most noticeable formatting change is the Author field; John Smith becomes Smith, J for example. Useful, unless your author is not a normal name.

Let’s say that you’ve got an article written by the Reserve Bank of Australia. If you put this as the author, you’ll get something like Australia, R. B. of. which doesn’t make much sense. Luckily, there’s a way to get the author’s name printed verbatim – by surrounding it in "{...}"

For example:

@MISC{rba,
... ,
author = "{Reserve Bank of Australia}",
...
}

will print out the author correctly.
