I have a paper that I want to cite in my own work, in the form
"J. Wayne" (for John Wayne) in the bibliography part of the paper and
Wayne in the body of the paper.
The full name of the author appears on the paper as
Aaaa Bbbb Cccc, and is typically a non-western name.
Say, consider something like
John Fitzgerald Kennedy, but let's assume you never heard of them, and they obviously are from a different culture, and you don't know if their last-name is
Should I note it in my Bibtex file as
Kennedy, John Fitzgerald or
Fitzgerald Kennedy, John ? This will change things when printed with last-name only, it will appear either as
So, more generally, is there an academic naming convention for this kind of situation ?
Edit: To be more precise, what I want to know is if there is a standardized way for an author with such a name to sign his paper, for example
Aaaa Bbbb-Cccc, so no ambiguity is left for the reader. Or for the reader, if one has a guaranteed way to know this (seems not).
I must add that I have seen the considered author cited as
Bbbb or as
Cccc, one of these being obviously incorrect (even both could be).
