Description James MacGregor 2011-03-28 12:11:11 PDT
When author names are suppressed (ie. when "Omit author names for section items from issues' table of contents" has been checked for a given journal section), the author's last name still shows up in the article breadcrumb, and possibly elsewhere (for example, in the Article Indexing Metadata in the RT; in DC.Creator.PersonalName and citation_authors in the page source). 

Presumably, if the author name is suppressed from the ToC it is for a reason -- for example, editorials with no bylines; appendixes/errata/etc. with no attributable author information. This author information should also be suppressed everywhere when the ToC display option is checked; and the ToC display option/description should be rephrased to "Omit author names for section items from issue's table of contents and indexing metadata".

This is come up for us recently with a journal just starting to use the review process. They asked if we could get rid of the metadata link because they don't want a name displayed anywhere for the content. 

Also, doing this specifically by section is possibly too restrictive? It might be nice if it was something toggle-able at the article level too?
