Like many Dutch names, my surname consists of two words: 'De Heide'. The article 'De' is capitalised, except when directly preceded by a given name or initials. Although 'De' always precedes 'Heide', in an alphabetical list, my name should be listed according to 'Heide' only. Citing a paper of mine should thus look like 'De Heide (2020)'.
