When including a publisher in your BibTeX entry, be sure to use the full and official name of the publisher. This will ensure the citation is both professional and credible. Additionally, it helps to prevent confusion with other publishers that may have similar names.


Here are a few examples demonstrating how to properly specify a publisher in different BibTeX entries:


title = {The Art of Scientific Research},
author = {John Doe},
year = {2023},
publisher = {Cambridge University Press},


title = {Chapter on Quantum Mechanics},
author = {Jane Doe},
year = {2023},
publisher = {Oxford University Press},
pages = {45--78},
editor = {Sarah Smith},
booktitle = {Modern Physics},


title = {Essay on Environmental Conservation},
author = {Alex Johnson},
year = {2023},
publisher = {Springer},
booktitle = {Sustainable Development: Theories and Practices},
editor = {Mark Lee},

Note that the publisher field is usually accompanied by other important fields such as title, author, year, etc., to provide a complete citation. It’s also worth noting that depending on the citation style being used, the format and placement of the publisher field may vary, so always be sure to follow the guidelines of the specific style you are adhering to.
