Goodreads Librarians Group - Book Issues: Two authors with the same name? Showing 1-33 of 33
Authors with same name
Adding or editing author names on a book record. The first author field is for entering the primary author of the book. Be sure to properly spell and capitalize the name or the book will not link to the correct author profile and become harder to find in the Goodreads database. Also, author names should be entered first name last name so they will link to the appropriate author profile on Goodreads. Only one author should be listed per author field. If an author uses initials in their name, the initials should contain NO spacing between them and be marked with a period.
Dec 23, PM. Hi, The book listed underneath this post is by an author or an alias with the same name as me, which means it gets added to my page, despite me NOT being the author. I had it changed so I wasn't linking to me, but somebody or the system changed it back again. I've once again removed myself, but is there any way to permanently stop this from happening?

The two-space version would not be ideal since that is where you have dumped the books you don't want.
Please take this quick survey to tell us about what happens after you publish a paper. I describe a method to separate the articles of different authors with the same name. It is based on a distance between any two publications, defined in terms of the probability that they would have as many coincidences if they were drawn at random from all published documents. Articles with a given author name are then clustered according to their distance, so that all articles in a cluster belong very likely to the same author. The method has proven very useful in generating groups of papers that are then selected manually. This simplifies considerably citation analysis when the author publication lists are not available.

Yes - two authors can have the same name. But your solution is a very good idea - include your middle initial or middle name - so you stand out.
