If you are citing a group author with a long name more than three times you can abbreviate it in text. You must spell out the name of the group upon first mention and then provide the abbreviation. The full name must be entered in the reference list entry. For instructions and examples on how to do this please see the APA Style Blog post 'How do I abbreviate group authors in in-text citations and reference list entries?'
