Enable searching by author name string
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Currently in the search engine of Wikidata, it's not possible to find a paper by the name of its author. These results can be found with the Query Service but not directly in the search engine.

What could be done is include the content of P2093 (author name string) in the search.
