Author Name Disambiguation

The goal of this project, which is a collaboration with the pRED group at Roche, is the disambiguation of author names. The information available in published articles, such as affiliation, is not always sufficient to uniquely identify a author. The correct identification of authors is a necessary prerequisite in order to be able to correctly assign scientific output to each author.
