Why has my author-name search given fewer hits than I expected ?
It is easy to miss hits unless you understand the CSD conventions for Authors' Names. In particular please be aware that:
- Authors don't always give their name in the same way, e.g. A.Smith and A.B.Smith; C.Kratky and Ch.Kratky
- Cyrillic characters are not always transliterated the same way, e.g. Belskii and Belskij
- Asian names are most often given in full, sometimes with the given name first, sometimes with the family name first and sometimes initialised
- American surnames often contain dynastic tags, e.g. a search for Jones will not find Jones Junior if the Exact surname option is used
