import of single name authors flawed

Klaus J. shared this question 2 years ago

Importing papers using the citavi web picker does not always work properly when an author has a single name, i.e. Indonesians do not generally use a given or first name and a family, last or surname name. The author entry in citavi for a paper authored by (given as first last name) Hafrijal Syandri and Azrita is imported as

"Syandri, Hafrijal; [No last name!], Azrita;".

A single name should be recognised automatically as last name.
