I had a "company author" in bibtex like author = {X-Rite, Inc.}. Unfortunately the author was output as Inc., X-Rite with a reference like XR05 (using \bibliographystyle{alpha}). So I changed the author to author = {{X-Rite, Inc.}}. Now the author comes out as X-Rite, Inc., but the reference became X-R05.

Can I avoid the minus in the reference in an easy way? I'm using LaTeX...

  • Maybe one of the solutions here will allow you to override the abbreviation to XR05, avoiding the hyphen? – LarrySnyder610 May 23 '19 at 0:22
  • shorthand = {XR} you mean? – U. Windl May 23 '19 at 1:19
  • Sure. That post has several different suggestions; shorthand is one of them (but requires biblatex). – LarrySnyder610 May 23 '19 at 1:21
