Biblio Import Pitfall Workarounds
Duplicate Detection and Merge Strategy
Cite ID Creation Strategy

Biblio Advanced Import is an add-on for the Bibliography Module.

Instead of creating duplicate biblio records during imports, existing ones can be updated or the import can be skipped depending on a configurable duplicate detection strategy.

You can use an out of the box strategy or configure your own.

How to detect duplicates?

Use one or combine multiple of these strategies:

  • Hashing over configurable biblio fields.
  • ISBN
  • ISSN
  • DOI
  • PubMed ID
  • ...

How to deal with duplicates?

  • Create duplicate record.
  • Skip import of a record.
  • Update the latest existing duplicate record.
  • Update the oldest existing duplicate record.
  • Update all existing duplicate records.
  • Create a new revision of the latest existing duplicate record.
  • Create a new revision of the oldest existing duplicate record.
  • Create a new revisions of all existing duplicate records.

How to merge duplicates?

  • Override the existing record.
  • Override the existing record but keep non empty values that do not exist in the record to be imported.
  • Only add new values that are empty in the existing record.
  • Only override non empty existing values.
  • Only override non empty existing values with new non empty existing values.
