The author is a government agency, how can I get it to format correctly in my bibliography?

For corporate or government authors, add a comma after the name so they will not be manipulated like personal authors. For example, in the author field:

  • Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education,

For corporate authors that have a comma within then insert two commas to maintain both a comma and the corporate name in proper order with the suffix, for instance:

  • University of California,, Berkeley
