My name is wrong but I can't change it!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • There is an entry for me under "David J Curtis" but almost all the publications are mine. I tried changing all the details to David Curtis with no middle name but it keeps showing as David J Curtis. And one or two of the publications I deleted are still showing.

    I can't see any way to produce a brand new author called David Curtis who I could then merge this profile with. I see that the name david-j-curtis is part of the URL so might be hard to change but it's silly having this other author being credited with all my publications. 

    The URL is here: http://academic.research.microsoft.com/Author/18150312/david-j-curtis

    All the details and almost all the publications are mine. You can see them all at google scholar: http://scholar.google.co.uk/citations?hl=en&user=Vrr4Ig0AAAAJ&view_op=list_works&gmla=AJsN-F6KHYT0LQ0ZyHOgTBXs8Aw-P6ul0G5U3XHzRkxMdnOikMTJp0hqQjIX-m68FS_7HAYAhvE1d6azyYaQ6AQsVwNrP3wJiA9j4TQz9JrTvxCrwvj0nXfcl0U8OYqYltaVN39zbKJt
