  • Hello,

    The recommended solution is to merge the multiple author profiles in Microsoft Academic Search. You can find instructions in below and also in our help documentation.

    To merge author profiles

    1. Sign in to Microsoft Academic Search.
    2. Find and click the author profile into which you would like to merge other author profiles.
    3. On the author profile page, click Edit on the upper right of the page.
    4. On the left side of the page, click Merge author profiles.
    5. In the author name box, type the name of the author profile that you would like to merge with the author profile you are editing, and then click Search.
    6. Select the author profile(s) to merge with the author profile you are editing, and then click Next. This step merges all publications.
    7. Select an author profile to keep, and then click Save. This is the author profile under which all publications will appear.

    Once you submit the merge author requests, they must be processed before the change appears on the live site.

    Best regards,

    Thomas, Academic Search Editor
