Sanitizing Authors

(Marcos Angelini) #1

Hi guys,

There are many accepted standards to write author names, such as
Name Secondname Surname
Name S. Surname
N. S. Surname
Surname, Name S.
Surname, N. S

But, there are many mistakes in original bibtex files in journals, such as
Name Surname
NS Surname
Surname S

It would be very useful to have a tool for quality control that allows to search for one surname and standardize all possible entries where this author appears.

one of the possibilites is to use Quality -> Integrity checker
Another option is to use the author field formatter in Quality -> Cleanup
