Export to ProQuest fails when first or last name contains spaces or apostrophes

Description

Because Proquest requires the filename to be derived from the author's first and last names, code must prevent the attempt to create files with spaces and apostrophes by stripping out these characters.

Names with apostrophes were having slashes added during the submission process(process_steps.php). This was not needed and was affecting the exported file name as well. Removed the use of addslashes() in process_steps.php.
