I want to cite some stuff from websites from geological studying organizations. I wanted to display the shortened name in my text, but letting both the abbreviation and full name in "references" like this. I use texstudio with bibtex. Let's just say the organization is FBI and I talking about an online page. I.e:

  • Text:

    According to the portraits of clowns \cite{fbi} they are very scary(...)
  • References:

    author={FBI - Federal Bureau of Investigation},
    title={Report of something evil},
    url= {https://www.fbi.com/FakeClownsAsExample},
    note={accessed  APRIL 30}

My issues are the following: url: url never showed the link address in references. I've tried several things but only "howpublished" worked. I'm using it ever since. It's not a big of a deal.

author: I want the reference to have both initials and full name: "FBI -Federal Bureau of Investigation" as author. However the author,in the text, appears as "of Investigation". It shows up as "FBI-Federal Bureau of Investigation" if I use double "{}" in mybib over author, but so it does in my text (I want it to appear as "FBI" only there).

Any idea on how to that ?

edit: TL,DR: FBI must be shown was FBI when I refer to it in my text and must be shown as "FBI- Federal Bureau Investigation (or similar)" in the reference page.

    People will need to know what bibliography system you are using: bibtex? biblatex? natbib? with what style? – Paul Stanley May 1 '18 at 9:04
  • I'm using bibtex with texstudio. I'm not sure whether my question was clear enough or not because english is not my first language. If anything is confusing please let me know ! – Daniel Luã May 2 '18 at 18:19
  • Best at least tell us what bibtex style you use. Ideal would be a minimal working example. See tex.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/4407/… – Paul Stanley May 2 '18 at 18:39
  • Your code stopped working because of the bullets -- it needed more indentation. Fixed. – Paul Stanley May 2 '18 at 18:40
