I suggest that...

Check for duplicated external identifiers (e.g. Scopus Author IDs)

Over the past few months, I have reported several cases to ORCID's support team, where two records exist with the same Scopus Author ID, or the same Researcher ID.

Usually these have proven to be duplicate records for the same individual, and one has been deprecated in favour of the other. In a small minority, one of the IDs has been entered in error, and has been removed.

It would be good if ORCID would run a script against the database, which produces a report showing such cases, and perhaps fires off automated emails to the record holder(s) and. or the support team.
