Today I found out that Scopus transferred all my scholarly publications under the name of another Lavinia Stan, who authored only one article in some Romanian journal. This is not the first time when this kind of identity change happened. Last year, the database listed a friend of mine as the author of his and his wife’s publications – both have the same initials. Should I be glad for them shaving some decades off my age or should I be sad for seeing all my work credited to somebody else? Both?
