Tools: Clear Faculty Scholarly Duplicates

When importing scholarly works data from third parties, institutions now have the option to prevent duplicate data from being imported into FACULTY180. Depending on your institutions policies, the Dashboard To Do section will display a message for faculty if there is duplicate data to be addressed.

The Clear Faculty Duplicates screen displays a list of all the duplicate scholarly works data based on the selected citation format, including the imported and existing activity that the system has found to be a duplicate and the match percentage.
