Hi, You just added two ORCID iDs to Peng Shi (Q29258950) - can I just check that was deliberate, and ask for your sources? If there are two iDs for this individual, I'll report the duplication to ORCID. Cheers, Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 21:41, 22 December 2017 (UTC)
Hi Andy, thanks for looking out!
Both ORCIDs where delivered to us by IEEE with https://doi.org/10.1109/TFUZZ.2016.2633373 and https://doi.org/10.1109/TSMC.2017.2675943 . The affiliations match the CV of the author. They also agree with the biographies provided with the papers ("freely" available from IEEE) including the pictures and the biography on the author web page (https://researchers.adelaide.edu.au/profile/peng.shi). The metadata are consistent with the information in the papers themselves, though Adelaide is mentioned in the second paper but not directly in the metadata. There is also thematic similarity. Is there a procedure in ORCID to map these profiles? We have some authors with 3 manually confirmed ORCIDs and I assume there will be more in the future. Greetings Florian.Reitz (talk)
- Hi again - ORCID confirm that these are not the same individual. You can report possible duplicates to their support@ email address (which is what I did in this case). In view of the ambiguity, I've removed both values for now. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 11:38, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
