Microsoft Academic Search malfunction! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     After I looked my publication records on the Microsoft Academic Search website I noticed that not all my papers are mentioned and also a paper from someone else has been listed as mine. When I tried to correct my records after logging in I saw this message that another user is updating the information for me and it didn't let me to change anything at the end. So I'm just wondering why someone else should have access to my details and be able to modify them.
