Hi -- I believe the the following is an acceptable bibtex entry: @article{brownetal93, author = {{Peter F.} Brown and {Stephen A.} {Della Pietra} and {Vincent J.} {Della Pietra} and {Robert L.} Mercer}, title = {The Mathematics of Statistical Machine Translation: Parameter Estimation}, journal = {Computational Linguistics}, year = 1993, volume = 19, number = 2, pages = {263-311} } It's a bit weird, but gets rendered fine by BibTeX for me. When I run it through BibTeX::Parser (0.63), it finds only one author: author->first = "{Peter F.}Brown" author->von = "and" author->last = "{Stephen A.}{Della Pietra}and {Vincent J.}{Della Pietra}and {Robert L.}Mercer " author->jr = "" This seems to be a general bug with braces inside fields. I get a similar error on: @Article{scholkopf98kpca, author = {Bernhard {Sch\"olkopf} and Alex Smola and K.R. Muller}, title = {Nonlinear component analysis as a kernel eigenvalue problem}, journal = {Neural Computation}, year = {1998}, volume = {10}, pages = {1299--1319} } Any help would be much appreciated!!! Otherwise, great package :). -h p.s.: % uname -a Linux hal-laptop 2.6.32-30-generic #59-Ubuntu SMP Tue Mar 1 21:30:21 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux % perl -v This is perl, v5.10.1 (*) built for i486-linux-gnu-thread-multi Copyright 1987-2009, Larry Wall Perl may be copied only under the terms of either the Artistic License or the GNU General Public License, which may be found in the Perl 5 source kit.
