You will have to edit the PDF metadata. Acrobat Pro can do this (for a hefty price), PDFtk does it for free, but you'll have to put in more of an effort.

PDFtk is a commandline tool and so requires a little fiddling, the good side is that it is possible to run it as part of a batch script, that is, if your PDFs are named in a consistent way (say author-title.pdf).
