Author searching the problem
Author searching: The Problem

  • How to distinguish between an author’s articles and those of another authors sharing the same name?

  • How to group an author’s articles together when his or her name has been recorded in different ways? (e.g. Stambrook, P and Stambrook, P.J.)

Solving the problem
Solving the Problem

We have approached solving these problems by using the data available in the publication records such as…

  • Author Names

  • Affiliation

  • Co-authors

  • Self citations

  • Source title

  • Subject area

    …and used this data to group articles that belong to a specific author.

    So how does Author Identifier work?
