Field: Authors    Seitenanfang

Syntax: [surname] OPERATOR [first name]
Example: <Green AND Thomas>

HINT: As far as possible, KALDI is provided by the original spelling of the authors' names, as well as diacritic signs. However, due to labor-effency, the names have to be entered in the form they appear in the different publications. Users have to face therefore two problems:

  • the same author can appear in KALDI under different spelling systems
  • diacritic signs (special characters) have to be entered in the search

In these cases the use of Fill-ins ("?", "*") are recommended:

Example: <AU=Ba?ares>
Result: data with the spelling "Banares" or "Bañares" and eventual titles with authors contain another letter in this place.

Members of the KALDI-staff make every effort to standardize different spellings of the same authors.
