how long does it take for author merge RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to merge authors

    Hilmar Koerner shows up in three entries (based on institution). They are all the same author. Hilmar Korner is also the same author. I edited the author info fields, merged authors and submitted (author institution Air Force Research Laboratory), but after a few days still haven't seen any movement. 

    can you clarify? 

    I love your site and would prefer this over Google Scholar, but if it takes that long to fix something in a profile I hesitate recommending it. Any edits in Google Scholar show up instantly. 

    thank you
