I want to list a company name in the author field of a bibliographic entry:

@book{CUDA,
  author    = {NVIDIA Corporation},
  title     = {NVIDIA CUDA Compute Unified Device Architecture Programming Guide},
  publisher = {NVIDIA Corporation},
  year      = {2007}
}

But the entry keeps showing up "N. Corporation". Is there a way to get the full author name to show up? I'm currently using the siam BibTEX style.

Just enclose the the author field in another set of braces:

@book{CUDA, 
   author = {{NVIDIA Corporation}}, 
   title = {NVIDIA CUDA Compute Unified Device Architecture Programming Guide}, 
   publisher = {NVIDIA Corporation}, 
   year = {2007}
}

    Enclosing in braces will also make BibTeX obey the capitalization. – Kit Feb 11 '11 at 4:42

    @Kit - Making BibTeX obey capitalization by enclosing the material in an extra pair of curly braces is mainly of relevance for the title field. To the best of my knowledge, no BibTeX style messes with the capitalization of names in the author and editor fields. – Mico Jun 23 '14 at 8:08
  • Does not work well if you are using alphanumeric ordering for the references. A reference with author in double curly brackets will be listed at the very end of the bibliography. Any suggestions on how to fix? – koo Sep 15 '16 at 21:20

    @koo Using the alpha bibliography style either with or without natbib sorts things correctly. So there's probably something else going on. If you can reproduce the problem with a minimal document you can ask a new question. See How to write a MWEB (Minimal working example with Bibliography)? for how to make the example. – Alan Munn Sep 15 '16 at 23:11

    When working with the IEEE style, the double braces alone did not work for me. Adding a backslash did the trick:@book{CUDA, author = {\{NVIDIA Corporation}}, title = {NVIDIA CUDA Compute Unified Device Architecture Programming Guide}, publisher = {NVIDIA Corporation}, year = {2007} } – Alessandro Cuttin Aug 21 '17 at 13:40
