How come authors go missing in my bibliography? It happens for some articles, but never for books or incollections.

Authors missing for #1

This is test.bib

 author = {Zarrinbakhsh, Nima and Mohanty, Amar K. and Misra, Manjusri},

 pages = {6025--6038},
 volume = {48},
 number = {17},
 journal = {Journal of Materials Science}

 author = {Schmid, Manfred and Ritter, Axel and Grubelnik, Andreas and Zinn, Manfred},
 year = {2007},
 title = {Autoxidation of medium chain length polyhydroxyalkanoate},
 pages = {579--584},
 volume = {8},
 number = {2},
 journal = {Biomacromolecules}

This is test.tex




    This should have more than one author~\citep{schmid:autoxidation}.

    This has more than one author~\citep{zarrinbakhsh:improving}.

    Have you looked at the options: maxnames, maxbibnames, and maxcitenames and the corresponding min- versions of the same? – jon Mar 26 '16 at 19:02
  • This is probably a duplicate of biblatex: displaying all authors of multi-author works in the bibliography. I'm a bit confused that the style you use does not indicate omitted authors with "et al." or similar, that is a bit unusual. What style do you use? (The MWE, you will find, has "et al." after Manfred Schmid.) – moewe Mar 27 '16 at 6:26
