wrong url automatically added to my name

Bin Yang 3 years ago updated 3 years ago 2

Hello, 


I test bibbase with my own bib file https://bibbase.org/show?bib=http%3A%2F%2Fpeople.cs.aau.dk%2F~byang%2Fpapers%2Fbyang.bib&msg=embed


There is a url that is automatically generated for my name "Yang, B", which links to an unrelated person's homepage. I wonder why this happens and how can I remove the wrong url? 


I guess this is due to the name. If I change my last name from Yang to Yangsss, then the url disappears. 


Thank you!


Kind regards,

Bin

The way BibBase associates author names with pages is by seeing whether all publications on a page have a common author. If so, BibBase concludes that this must be the best page to link with their name. Normally name-collisions do not happen, because BibBase just doesn't have that many users to have duplicate last name + first initial. In this case, it seems that the page that was linked to had only one publication at one point in the past (on 2016-07-06 to be precise) with that name on it, and so your short-name was associated with that.


I've gone ahead and removed the wrong association.

Thank you, Christian!
