Editors Note: This is actually good advice and, with my librarian hat on, I wish that more journals and other publishers would follow it.
It is well to write one’s name in full. Three complete names are none too many for individual distinction in so crowded a world as is ours. If, however, the middle one is represented by an initial only, always write it uniformly. It is better, if the form with initial only has not become really established to use the full name, although it may be long.
