  • It appears that his feature is not active yet.

     

    I also appear under two names in the database - in my case the reason is that my name actually changed.  DBLP knows that both names refer to the same person, but Microsoft Academic Search doesn't:

    http://academic.research.microsoft.com/Author/154726.aspx

    http://academic.research.microsoft.com/Author/294819.aspx

    Interestingly, the system found a correct photo for both authors, but didn't realize they were identical :-)

    Could those please be merged (the first is the new and current correct name)?

  • Could you please merge those two identities, please?

    The final name should be "Luca Brayda" but I will make the necessary modifications.

    I'm also this one: http://academic.research.microsoft.com/Author/3485022.aspx

    Could you fix it? Of course, you need to find a better way of doing this than doing it one by one... good luck with the project, it looks very good and potentially useful!

    is yet another alias for me:

  • Great acadamic search service!

    Unfortunately, I appear also under different aliases:

    1. http://academic.research.microsoft.com/Author/9425215

    2. http://academic.research.microsoft.com/Author/4386754

    It would be great if you could merge them to the latter one.

    Thanks!

  • Hi Arne,

    Thanks for your information! We'll look into your issue and make corresponding changes. Actually you can also finish this operation by using "merge author" function. Click "edit" button next to author's name, and you can find "merge author" in the operation list on the left side.

    We'll fix this problem for you this time, and please check back later!
