Disambiguating Authors

Postby cbel12 » Thu Dec 06, 2007 9:45 am

The BYU library is bringing up its first journal on OJS. We'll be using the Articles & Issues XML Plugin to bring in old issues of the journal. There are some authors of articles who share the same name. Is there a way to disambiguate the authors such as by qualifying their names with birth dates?

Thanks,
Jeff Belliston

Hi Jeff,

On the Authors index, authors are also distinguished by institution and middle name; if by some enormous coincidence all of these are the same, however, you'll need to find a way to work around it.
