One of several authors on a paper I need to cite has only one name. How do I format the BibTeX entry?

author = {Smith, J and Jones, S and Singleton and Brown, A}

  • What bibliography style are you using? – egreg Aug 6 '12 at 13:53
  • @egreg: I made my own one years ago. If I add the author as Singleton, {}, the output is Singleton, . which is not what I want. Do I need to run makebst again? – SabreWolfy Aug 6 '12 at 15:21
  • Can you show the entry in the .bbl file? – egreg Aug 6 '12 at 18:00
  • @egreg: Thanks, but honza's answer below has solved this. – SabreWolfy Aug 6 '12 at 19:47

What if you use just author = {Smith, J and Jones, S and {Singleton} and Brown, A}? That works for me without problems with natbib, and a custom style based on abbrvnat.
