If somebody sometimes publishes with their middle initial and sometimes without, can I add it to the papers without to make my bibliography neater, and to make it clear that there is just one person?



What about cases where someone is sometimes published with a shortened version of their name? E.g., 'Tom' for 'Thomas'.

I try to be very careful about that myself, and always have my full name on programmes and publications even though lots of people call me by the short version.
