Aliases for Persons

In the Publication Database, persons have to be associated with an organisational unit (an institute and possibly a group). Under certain circumstances, a new person record must be created when a person's organisational unit has changed. The same applies in case of name changes, e.g., because of marriage. For persons with more than one person record, special records may be created, which tie together all their person records as aliases. All publication records that pertain to any one of the person records tied together with such a special record are selected if the checkbox "Select publication records for all aliases of this person" has been activated and if there are indeed alias records. For persons without alias records, and for all selection options except "Person:", the state of this checkbox is ignored.
