    Agreed - I followed the wizard, and for some reason got lots of exact duplicates (all with the same DOI) imported: -- see http://orcid.org/0000-0001-9842-9718

    My CrossRef suggestions list includes a book about T Lawrence (as in Lawrence of Arabia). The title contains the word Lawrence but no one associated with author or editor has either my first or last name. This "feature" should be eliminated until it works properly. Now, it only serves to add bad data to one's ORCID record. We all know that incorrect data is worse than no data. I cannot puzzle out how the CrossRef match system is supposed to work. I would have thought that after entering some of my oublications along with DOIs and PMIDs that the match system would get better. Yet not even one of the suggestions is to my publications.

    Agreed. When I selected some my publication in the left-handed area by clicking, no change found in the right-handed blank area. It forces me to click again that made duplications. Also, very bad responses to clicking, I clicked some publications that are not my own ones. The latter should be removed at least.

    Even worse: duplicates have incorrect (false) volume numbers and/or page numbers of relevant journals. On the other hand they show correct DOI.

    There is a basic problem with the search for works. The ones I select are not removed from the search result when I select them (not even when I save). It is then far too easy to assume that you have the next set of search results and just go on adding the works you recognize as your own. This is bad UI design and at a very basic level you should not be able to add items with the same DOI.

    I'd like to vote for this idea too, as now I do not see any possibility to remove duplicate (or merge records)

    This is the most crucial update required to make this service useful. At present, it is essentially impossible to update a list of references from an external search without duplicating all the existing entries.

    This is a serious issues for me. Needs to be fixed for this service to be useful. This should be done automatically with on click rather than manually on a case by case basis

    I have the same problem, the only solution would be manually delete the individual records but I have more than 400 works now in the list and manual deleting with confirmation of each single record would take more than one hour. As a start, a single button "Delete all" would help.

    Agreed. I have triplicates now, despite having cleaned up the list a couple of times already. I'm not doing it again by hand, because first it is impossible to oversee where the duplicates are and what version to keep, and it will get corrupted soon again anyway.

    Too bad ... I just imported 50 duplicate records from ResearcherID ... without automatic de-duplication OrcID is essentially useless to me :(

    ORCID is still not preventing duplicates from being imported. This is very inconvenient, please fix this soon.

    I just transferred from ResearcherID. After some confusing error messages, I now have duplicates in ORCID. As noted below, very incovenient!

    Your work on "a feature to prevent duplicates from being added to ORCID records" remains to be very bad. Several good and simple suggestions have been mentioned (e.g., by adding a button "to remove all publications" - this will provide an opportunity to export publications from other databases, such as Google scholar, Scopus, Research ID, Mendeley, etc, in which the problem of duplications have been solved) but the ORCID team stupidly resists to use easy ways and very slowly keeps developping the complicated ways.

    At least remove duplicate DOI numbers. They are unique and no confusion can exist!

    I am amazed that this is so hard to fix! I just imported from ResearcherID and now have many duplicates. The whole point of ORCID is that it has everything listed exactly once, in one place!

    All my papers are twice in the system. If I remove one manually, it crops up again...

    I really wish this feature was in here, so many other places do it. I can't really use ORCID untill I can easily get rid of duplicates. It really is not that hard to do.

    The explanation that this is caused by citation being at all different (such as including an external link, or page number) makes no sense: I imported my ResearcherID works, and then did the same again, and each time I do this the counter increases. So even exact replications are added. All the worse because integration with ReasearcherID seems to be "officially supported". I completely agree with the others commenters that this is a *major* problem that should be *easy* to fix (even if not perfectly) on *short* notice.

    That is to remove all the unwanted, duplicated files from your machine. Software name is DuplicateFilesDeleter.

    This is crazy - what is the point of allowing or nat least not providing automatic delation of hundreds of duplicates?

    ORCID is great but these duplicates are a serious problem that needs to be fixed soon! However, nothing has been happening for almost a whole year now. Until this is fixed, ORCID is quite useless for me. I agree that a perfect solution is difficult to obtain but please offer at least the option to delete duplicates which have the same DOI. Soon! If possible, yesterday :-)
