Organizations with similar names get mixed up RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • For example:

    There are two Universities of Freiburg in Europe, one in Switzerland (Université de Fribourg - Universität Freiburg http://www.unifr.ch/) and one in Germany (Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg, www.uni-freiburg.de). In Microsoft Academic Search, both are listed as University/Universität of Fribourg.

    Almost all authors that are affiliated with one of the two are listed under the Swiss university. That doesn't make any sense.

    The web pages in the descriptions are also mixed up.

    Isn't there are clever way to sort out that kind of problem?
