    Thanks for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

    We are pleased to share that we have added a normalization option in the Registry as a part of our API 3.0 work. This allows identifiers which are case insensitive, such as DOIs, to be processed as the same regardless of case on the ORCID record. Therefore, they are grouped as expected. You can find the card with the update on our current development Trello, or view your ORCID record for an example if this issue has affected you previously: https://trello.com/c/5p6QK7bS/4254

    Let us know if you find case sensitive identifiers which are not grouping on your record as expected.

    Warm regards,
    ORCID Community Team

    Reposting Stuart Ray's comment from a related thread (https://support.orcid.org/forums/175591/suggestions/3342355), on March 17, 2017 4:32 PM:

    > It appears (from my profile) that the DOI merge function fails to match (and merge) duplicates when there are differences in DOI capitalization from different sources (e.g. Scopus vs. ResearcherID vs. CrossRef).

    Many thanks for your notice -- it is the same issue as above, and we have started gathering the information we'll use to address this and related issues.

    > I confirm the problem reported by Stuart Ray on March 17, 2017. The duplicate records in ORCID is a very serious problem that should be fixed.

    When updating an ORCID record from various literature sources like Scopus, CrossRef, own entries, Pure, it happens easily that duplicates are not automatically being detected and hidden in the public view. Instead, you have to manually go through the list and hide duplicates. Only, if records contain the same doi the deduplication works. Could this please be improved? Please try to establish a robust deduplication algorithm.

    I see this happening even WHEN the DOI is the same, because of differences in the "URL" field (seems to be mainly Scopus' fault)...

    Hello Martin,

    Thanks for your response. Could you please provide some examples of this occurring, either here or at https://orcid.org/help/contact-us ? Many thanks!

    I vote for ignoring "case" in DOIs. We just discovered that DataCIte has changed their case from all upper case now to lowercase when reporting to ORCID. So some of my works I gathered in June from DataCite match duplicate records, but now new DataCite records (reported in October) do not (all that is different is the change to lower case in the DOI).
