I am currently writing a larger document with multiple people. For grading purposes we need to specify one author per chapter/section/...

However, I would like to keep the real ToC clutter free, and thought about adding a second ToC at the end of the document, that would then have the author information as well.

The first idea was to use something like

\chapter[Chapter 1 {\normalfont\small\itshape The Author}]{Chapter 1}

This works, but oviously adds the "short" version to both ToCs. Is there a flag to ignore the short version, or any other solution for this problem?

The code below uses etoc only to allow multiple uses of \tableofcontents. Other classes (like, e.g., memoir) allow it directly contrarily to report.


\usepackage{etoc}% only so far to enable multiple uses of "\tableofcontents"
% maybe the document class already allows it.

\DeclareRobustCommand*\AUTHOR [1]{}
\newcommand\SHOWAUTHORS {%
\DeclareRobustCommand*\AUTHOR [1]{{\normalfont\small\itshape ##1}}}



\chapter[Chapter 1 \AUTHOR{The Author}]{Chapter 1}

\chapter[Chapter 2 \AUTHOR{The Other Author}]{Chapter 2}

\chapter[Chapter 3 \AUTHOR{Again The First Author}]{Chapter 3}


First TOC:


Second TOC:
