I am trying to cite an article from the UNHCR.

I would like it to be in text as the following

The United Nations High Commissioner (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees [UNHCR], 2017b).

I tried copying the bibtex from google which is the following

@article{united2017global,
  title={Global trends: Forced displacement in 2017},
  author={United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees},
  year={2017}
}

but the result was

The United Nations High Commissioner forRefugees (2017)

even the bibliography I would like it to appear as so (not exactly this as my article is different but to give you an idea):

enter image description here

the article is available over here https://www.unhcr.org/5b27be547.pdf

The example code goes as

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\usepackage{natbib}
\bibliographystyle{agsm}

\begin{document}
\section{Introduction}

The \cite{united2017global} figure shows that 30 people were forcibly displaced every minute because of conflicts or persecutions across the world in 2017.

\bibliography{Biblio.bib}
\end{document}

and the separate Biblio.bib file is as

@article{united2017global,
  title={Global trends: Forced displacement in 2017},
  author={{United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees}},
  url={https://www.unhcr.org/5b27be547.pdf},
  year={2017}
}
  • Thank you for your comments I am using \usepackage{natbib} \bibliographystyle{agsm} which somehow it is mentioning United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (2017), ‘Global trends: Forced displacement in 2017’ – rsc05 Apr 5 at 9:36
  • @moewe thank you for the comment just done so :) – rsc05 Apr 5 at 9:43
  • Thanks. I retagged the question since it is not about biblatex (as mentioned in my last comment). Note that technically speaking \bibliography{Biblio.bib} is wrong. \bibliography takes the name of your .bib file without extension. Despite that it works with the extension on some systems. But it does not work on my system (Win 10, MikTeX 2.9). So I suggest you change to the correct \bibliography{Biblio}. – moewe Apr 5 at 9:46
  • I guess with author={{United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)}}, you'd get close to what you want. It just doesn't switch the parenthesis style (that would be possible, but would probably require a bit of hackery). – moewe Apr 5 at 9:57
