This paper proposes a novel approach in incorporating several metadata such as citations, co-authorship, titles, and keywords to identify real authors in author disambiguation task. Classification schemes make use of these variables to identify authorship. The methodology performed in this paper is: (1) coarse grouping of article by the use of focus names, (2) Applying a model using paper metadata to identify same authorship, and (3) separate the true authors having the same focus name.
