Clean up author names

Hi there,

This might be a strange question, but is there any facility to clean up fields like author names? I have a library of ~400 references. Many articles have the same authors, but through database import systems, they often have different constructions (eg. Brown, Amy G; Brown A. G.; Brown, A). And Endnote recognises each of those as different authors, which become messy when you reference those articles in a paper.

I’m hoping that there is some way to run through Authors, find same Surnames, and merge authors to a single entry??


Gosh, I will fall in love with anyone who can tell us how to do this! :heart:

I Don`t know how to clean up author names but I know how to clean carpets
