I have authored or co-authored a number of book chapters with friends and collaborators over the years and have been privileged to do so (see the book chapter section in my CV). I have also been involved with authoring or editing a number of books and one is presently in press and two will hopefully be finished by end of year. They are listed below.
IN PRESS Computer-based Structure Elucidation from Spectral Data: The Art of Solving Problems with ACD/Structure Elucidator, Mikhail E. Elyashberg, Antony J. Williams, Springer Link
Modern NMR Approaches for the Structure Elucidation of Natural Products PART 1 by Gary E. Martin, David Rovnyak and Antony J. Williams, in preparation, Royal Society of Chemistry Link
Applications of Modern NMR Approaches to the Structure Elucidation of Natural Products PART 2 by Gary E. Martin, David Rovnyak and Antony J. Williams, in preparation, Royal Society of Chemistry Link
I really like the Amazon Author Page for keeping all of this information integrated. My page is here: http://www.amazon.com/Antony-J.-Williams/e/B004YRPRV2 and I update it with book chapters and books as they come out.
Yesterday I commented on the issues of poor name searching related to the Chemtrove article published recently. When I added the Springer book to my profile today I took a look at the capabilities of Amazon assuming that things would likely be a lot better. In order to do this I found the Springer book here: http://www.amazon.com/Computer-Based-Structure-Elucidation-Spectral-Data/dp/3662464012/
and clicked on the name Antony J. Williams listed as shown here:
The result set is shown here. Only two of these books are mine, the rest are shown below and yes, the one entitled “I Hate Sex” remains on my list. I did NOT write it! I couldn’t see why the Granular Materials book is listed against me until I looked at all 30 editors/contributors for the book here and saw that Antony and Williams (very much separated) were shown in the list. The All Hallows book makes more sense as it has David Williams, Antony Oldknow, but the last one about dinoflagellates has the same issue as the granular materials book…Antony and Williams in the list of authors.
Having added the book to my profile however made a dramatic difference as it now links to my author page and lists all of my books rather than performing a loose search. This is a good overall solution but DID need my participation to claim my book. To date the evidence suggests that Google really have their act together in terms of being able to automatically associate articles with my profile but for other platforms such as Kudos, ORCID and Amazon Author Pages the author is best to stay involved with CLAIMing their articles to ensure good association and high quality data.
