For author searches, consider:
For example, the author, John Doe, can be referred to as J Doe or as JE Doe, depending on what name they chose to use when they published their manuscript. Or John Doe could have changed their last name at one point in their career, and can consequently have used more than one name in their publications.
Name ambiguity can also affect entities. For example, the University of Wisconsin-Madison can be referred to as UW-Madison, University of Wisconsin, etc., and departments may be referred to differently or may not be included at all in within an author's affiliation.
This is why it is important to try to account for different names and/or include author IDs in your search strategy.
The information you will need for your search will depend on how thorough you would like your search to be. Below is the information you may need for author searches and institution or department searches.
Basic, moderate, and high indicate how precise your search is projected to be with the addition of the specified information.
Institution or Department Searches
The Ebling Library provides education, training, and consultation services in publication tracking for researchers and departments.
