[Objective] This paper aims to construct name authority for authors, institutions, journals, and funding, etc. [Methods] First, we loaded, cleansed, transformed, integrated and merged names from multiple sources to create uniform structured data with unique identifiers. Then, we used the metadata model for name authority to extract research entities and relationships among them. Finally, we proposed disambiguation algorithms, such as Levenshtein Distance, Jaccard, word2vec and CNN, for different research entities. [Results] Our study created name authority databases for authors (23 million records), institutions (2.6 million records), journals (30,000 records), and funding (2 million records). We chose six institutions’ names from NSTL and compared them with those from Incites. We found the average precision reached 86.8%. [Limitations] The proposed disambiguation strategies and algorithms need to be further refined and improved in dealing with the diverse expressions of selected disambiguation feature. The analysis of data from different data sources are needed, in order to apply appropriate algorithms. [Conclusions] The proposed method and disambiguation strategies could improve the performance and comprehensiveness of databases for name authority.
