  • Hello,

    Thank you for your interest in Microsoft Academic Search! We could not confirm that the 5 authors of the publication noted in your forum post have Quad-e-Azam University listed as their affiliation. It appears they all have Aga Khan University as their organization affiliation. We would be pleased to assist if you with correcting the organization affiliation of authors in Microsoft Academic Search as necessary, if you are able to send the author profile URLs to acadfb@microsoft.com along with information to verify the author's affiliation (i.e., author's homepage).

    Please let us know if there is any other assistance we can provide.

    Best regards,
