    Why same name, different expression?

    The name Lewis P. Rowland is also expressed as Rowland, Lewis P.
    What implication or significance does it have with different expression of the same name?

    Re: Why same name, different expression?


    There is no difference. In academic papers the last name is always put first, followed by the initials. For example, if you're citing a paper, you would usually do it like this:

    Wheeler, M. A., Stuss, D. T., & Tulving, E. (1997). Toward a theory of episodic memory: The frontal lobes and autonoetic consciousness. Psychological Bulletin, 121, 331–354.
    If you go to a library, you search by the author's last name. That might explain it.
