Author Disambiguation RRS feed

  • Question

  • There does not appear to be a simple way for author disambiguation and merging.

    Adding publications seems to be impossible if there is an author or a conference not already in the database.

  • Hello Thomas,

    Thank you for reaching out to us! We would be happy to assist you with making changes to an author profile in Microsoft Academic Search. You are welcome to email us at acadfb@microsoft.com and we can make author profile changes on your behalf. Alternatively, it is possible for users to make changes to disambiguate and/or merge authors. To learn more and for step-by-step instructions, please see our help documentation. Please note that it can take some time for submitted changes to be processed and appear on the live site.

    Additionally, at this time, it is not possible for a user to create an author profile or add a conference to Microsoft Academic Search; however, you can email us at the above address and we can create an author profile and/or review the conference for inclusion. In the meantime, you should be able to add a publication to Microsoft Academic Search if the conference does not currently exist on the site.

    Please let us know if we can assist you further. We appreciate your interest in Microsoft Academic Search.

    Best regards,

    Thomas, Academic Search Editor
