Acronym in text and acronym+full name in bibliography?


I feel like there is a solution for this, probably I've seen something by Bwiernik, but cannot find it.
Is there a way to have the following output?

in text:
.... (BAG, 2017)....

BAG (Bundesanstalt für Gesellschaft), 2017, Statistics on my own title. Geneva.

  • Two options:

    1) enter BAG (Bundesanstalt für Gesellschaft) as the author in your data. When you insert the citation, click the blue bubble and check the Suppress Author box and enter BAG as a prefix.

    2) my preferred option. Enter BAG as the author and Bundesanstalt für Gesellschaft as the publisher. That will be formatted like this, which I find acceptable.

    BAG, 2017, Statistics on my own title. Bundesanstalt für Gesellschaft, Geneva.
  • You're a star. Thanks. :)
  • I think we have some improvements for this planned for CSL 1.1, right?

    Just use the full name and acronym in the bibliography, as you want, and in text citation can be edited: you can "ignore" the author and just write wathever you want in the prefix field (e.g., NTSB)
