This question already has an answer here:

I use plainnat to cite online material as follows:

  author = {Miniwatts Marketing},
  title = {{Internet World Stats}},
  howpublished = "\url{http://www.internetworldstats.com/stats.htm}",
    year = {2013},
    note = "[Online; accessed 19-July-2013]"

but it gives a lot of space between the words, as can be seen in the following screenshot:


How do I fix this?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Not directly related to your query, but of relevance: Since the entry has a so-called "corporate" author, you should write author = {{Miniwatts Marketing}} (note the second pair of curly braces) rather than just author = {Miniwatts Marketing}``. This will ensure that (i) author-year type citations will be to Miniwatts Marketing` instead of Marketing, (ii) the entry in the references list will be sorted under Mi... instead of Ma..., and (iii) (depending on the bibliography style in use) the entry's author won't be typeset as "Marketing, Miniwatts" or, worse yet, "Marketing, M.". – Mico Feb 16 '14 at 16:18


  author = {Miniwatts Marketing},
  title = {Internet World Stats},
  howpublished = {Online},
  url= {http://www.internetworldstats.com/stats.htm},
    year = {2013},
    note = {[Accessed 19-July-2013]}
  • You should have double curly braces around the contents of the author and title fields, as you're dealing with a "corporate" author and so as to avoid lowercasing the words "World" and "Stats". – Mico Feb 16 '14 at 16:19
