    If someone at Microsoft was paying attention, they'd 1) recognize the hundreds of requests to merge profiles, 2) fix their process so these multiple profiles aren't created, and 3) develop a straightforward and obvious process for merging of profiles.

  • Hello Wayne,

    Thank you for contacting us. We sincerely appreciate your feedback! It is possible for users to submit requests to merge multiple author profiles, and it can take some time for merge author requests to be processed so that they appear on the live site. You can learn more about managing an author profile in Microsoft Academic Search in our Help Documentation. We will review the author profiles you noted in your forum message to ensure they are being merged as necessary. Additionally, we are working on improving the accuracy and completeness of the content in Microsoft Academic Search, including author disambiguation.

    Thank you again for contacting us with your input. Please let us know if we can assist you further.

    Best regards,


    Thomas, Academic Search Editor
