New: Duplicate checking...
09/04/2014

Already available during the import process, ORBilu now incorporates duplicate checking during the data entry process as well.

 

You want to add a publication where the title, first author and date published match another entry in ORBilu?  ORBilu will provide you with a warning and ask you to verify if it really is a duplicate or not.

 

See how this functionality works in our training videos.
