Q. How do i format names with multiple parts?

If the author last name is hyphenated, add both names and the hyphen in the reference list and in the body when using in-text citation.

If the last name has two parts separated by a space and no hyphen, include both names in the reference list and in in-text citation.

If the author last name includes a particle (e.g.: de, de la, der, van, von), put the particle before the last name in the reference list and in in-text citation.

If the author last name includes a suffix (e.g.: Jr., Sr., III), include the suffix after the initials in the reference list but do not include it in the in-text citation.

Here are some examples:
