I think this question is relevant to others because there are many people who write research papers on very broad topics, and sometimes articles of broad topics can contain different information, but have a very simple name. For example, if someone were to do a research paper on the issue of marijuana legalization, there could be an article named "Marijuana" with no author that contains information on the political issues of marijuana, and there could be another article named "Marijuana" with no author containing the medical issues of the topic.
