Search by "Institution" field

Hello,

As several of my colleagues, I have my own ResearcherID. But when we subscribed, many spellings have been used in the "Primary Institution" field, even if they are very close between each others. For instance, the spellings with or without accent, "Institution name (institution code)" or "(institution code) institution name" or "Institution name" without the code or with "-" between words or with or without parenthesis,...

Thus, when we search by the "Institution" field, only a couple of results are displayed, depending on the exact spelling.

Also when the search spelling is too long, the result is empty. 

 

I suggest that the search engine can find more results by trying several close spellings, as any search engine could do.

 

Regards,
