Wrong affiliation for authors from IIT Kharagpur and IIT Guwahati RRS feed

  • Question

  • All authors from IIT Kharagpur and IIT Guwahati have "ERNET" as their affiliation in the MS Academic Search page, simply because their email addresses have the word ernet in them, as in "iitkgp.ernet.in" and "iitg.ernet.in". As a result the two institutes don't even appear in the list of academic institutes from Asia. Please check for yourself. One expects the web crawlers / robots to be a little more intelligent than that!

  • Hello, Professor Purandar,

    Thank you for your interest in Microsoft Academic Search! And thank you for alerting us that IIT Kharagpur and IIT Guwahati are not included as academic organizations.

    We will send a request to our technical team to add IIT Kharagpur and IIT Guwahati as organizations on the website. This can take some time to process. Thank you for your patience. 

    Please let us know if we can be of any other assistance. We hope you continue to explore and enjoy our site.

    Best regards,

    Thomas, Academic Search Editor
