Attribution of publications RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just noticed that my few publications are attributed to a colleague mine with the same name (Michael Merz) who performed his research at a different school than I - he was at Hamburg University, while I was at Ulm University (working with Konrad Froitzheim). Consequently, I don't even show up in the co-author graph because my publications have simply been merged with my doppelgaenger's.

    So I was wondering if you had an estimate of how many publications are classified/attributed to the wrong author (percentage)? How are you deriving the authors for specific publications? Do you use email addresses?

    Thank you,

    Michael Merz (mmerz@microsoft.com or mmerz@acm.org)
