Show last name first in authors column.

Hi,

Researchers are used to seeing article authors' last name first. In fact, I don't even know the first name of many of the important authors in my field. So showing the first name before the last name in the article list gives me no meaningful information - instead it places a cognitive load on me because I cannot glance over the articles to find the article that I am looking for.

Please change the order. I cannot imagine a researcher that appreciates this format of author names.

Hi 

I fully agree with the reasoning and hope that the change will soon be possible: article Authors family (last) name in the first place!!!
