I need to cite some articles which were created by some professional organizations, so no authors or editors are listed:

    author = {},
    title = {This is the title},
    publisher = {This is the publisher},
    year = {2012},
    address = {Miami}

I am using the APA style in ConTeXT, setup as follows:

\setupbibtex[database={Bibliography}, sort=author]

Whenever I place a citation, \cite{noname2012} it displays like this:

(noname2012, 2012)

How can I the bibliography display the title instead of the name, when the name and editor fields are empty?

You mention that the publications were produced by organizations. Could you list the organizations as "corporate" authors? E.g., author = "{Securities and Exchange Commission}". – Mico Mar 16 '13 at 23:43

You can always try to use the natbib package along with the \bibliographystyle defined as apalike or newapa. Thus, your code will look like:


\bibliographystyle{apalike} % or newapa, depending on what you are using
\bibliography{bibliography} % your bibliography.bib file

And then you can use either \citep{authorlabel} (for getting the whole reference in parenthesis) or \citet{authorlabel} (to get the year in parenthesis and the author outside of them). I strongly recommend your to see Section 2.7 of the natbib documentation for more information on this.

Does that work in ConTeXt? – Village Apr 10 '13 at 11:03
