# Using institute instead of author for @online [duplicate]

There is no individual author to attribute, but there is an institute. However the institute field seems to not work (it doesn't show up in the bibliography). So I'm trying to put the institute in the author field. If I do so, then bibtex tries to format it as a human's name.

So what I want is for the bibliography entry to say:

Australian Government Department of Industry, Innovation and Science

But what I'm getting is:

I. Australian Government Department of Industry and Science.

So LaTeX thinks that I'm referencing someone who's first name is Innovation and surname is Australian Government Department of Industry

I've tried adding lots of {} everywhere, but I can't figure out how to override the automatic initialisation.

Minimum working example:

main.tex:

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}

\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[style=ieee, natbib=true, backend=biber]{biblatex}

\begin{document}

Here's a citation \cite{SGSC_data}.

\renewcommand*{\UrlFont}{\rmfamily}
\printbibliography

\end{document}


references.bib:

@online {SGSC_data,
year   = "2015",
month  = 10,
day    = 8,
author = "Australian Government Department of Industry, Innovation and Science",
url    = "https://data.gov.au/dataset/smart-grid-smart-city-customer-trial-data",
title  = "Smart-Grid Smart-City Customer Trial Data"
}


All together with filecontents package:

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}

\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[style=ieee, natbib=true, backend=biber]{biblatex}

\usepackage{filecontents}

\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}

@online {SGSC_data,
year   = "2015",
month  = 10,
day    = 8,
author = "Australian Government Department of Industry, Innovation and Science",
url    = "https://data.gov.au/dataset/smart-grid-smart-city-customer-trial-data",
title  = "Smart-Grid Smart-City Customer Trial Data"
}

\end{filecontents}

\begin{document}

Here's a citation \cite{SGSC_data}.

\renewcommand*{\UrlFont}{\rmfamily}
\printbibliography

\end{document}

• Tada author = {{Australian Government Department of Industry, Innovation and Science}} see also Using a 'corporate author' in the “author” field of a bibliographic entry (spelling out the name in full) – moewe Oct 18 '15 at 6:39
• Please note that with biblatex the day field does not exists officially and will be discarded starting from the next release, it is far better to use date = {2015-10-08}. – moewe Oct 18 '15 at 6:42
• Ah of course. Thanks. I was so close. I tried author = "{{Australian Government Department of Industry, Innovation and Science}}" – falsePockets Oct 18 '15 at 6:43
• Mhh, author = "{{Australian Government Department of Industry, Innovation and Science}}" does work here ... Even though it is a bit of an overkill. – moewe Oct 18 '15 at 6:45
• I tried using date = {2015-10-08}, but it didn't work. I get the error Entry 'SGSC_data' (references.bib): Invalid format '2015-10-8' of date field 'date' - ignoring. and I just see an empty set of brackets in the pdf. – falsePockets Oct 18 '15 at 6:55
