I am new to using LaTeX and ran into the following problem. I make use of the apacite package. I made a .bib file with the following entry:

@misc{Ambulancezorkort,

  author = {Rijksinstituut voor gezondheid en milieu, Ministerie van Volksgezondheid Welzijn en Sport},
  title = {Ambulancezorg kort en bondig.},
  month = {March},
  year = {2012},
  url = {http://www.nationaalkompas.nl/zorg/ambulancezorg/ambulancezorg-samengevat/}

}

So this autor (a Dutch ministry) is pretty long and has a comma in it. When using \citeA{Ambulancezorkort} I've got the following result:

(Rijksinstituut voor gezondheid en milieu, 2012)

Of course I would like to have the whole name, and not only the part before the comma. When I tried the name without the comma, the outcome was only worse. When using the entry:

author = {Rijksinstituut voor gezondheid en milieu Ministerie van Volksgezondheid Welzijn en Sport},

I obtain the result:

(Voor gezondheid en milieu Ministerie van Volksgezondheid Welzijn en Sport, 2012)

So the word 'rijksinstituut' is missing, both in text as in the reference list. I am looking for the way of displaying this long author entry correctly. Thanks in advance.

    Authors are separated by and. I can't understand the phrase inside author but you can use extra braces: author = {{Rijksinstituut voor gezondheid en milieu Ministerie van Volksgezondheid Welzijn en Sport}}, if the author name is one name. – Marco Daniel Apr 6 '13 at 10:43

    Because you haven't marked the author field with double braces (see Marco Daniel's comment), BibTeX interprets the comma in the first example as separating the (in this case multiple!) surname parts from the (in this case multiple!) given names. Clearly not what's intended! In the second case, it interprets Rijksinstituut as the given name and voor gezondheid en milieu as the "von part" of the author's name -- still not what you want! See Line break in citation with organization as author for more information on this matter. – Mico Apr 6 '13 at 11:13

    The issue of how to set up "corporate" authors was also discussed recently in Line break in citation with organization as author. – Mico Apr 6 '13 at 11:43
