The merging is performed as indicated in Merge Entities. This algorithm uses an authoritative journal merging list (AJML) that can be found in the Sci2 tool's configuration folder as JournalGroups.txt. It will first "normalize" the FULL_TITLE column from the SOURCE table. For this article, "normalize" means to convert the value of the column to lower case and remove all leading and trailing spaces. If the AJML contains this normalized value, all journals with the AJML's matching value will be merged together. If the normalized FULL_TITLE column is not found in the AJML, the TWENTY_NINE_CHARACTER_SOURCE_TITLE_ABBREVIATION column from the SOURCE table will be "normalized". If the AJML contains this normalized value, all journals with the AJML's matching value will be merged together. If it is not found in the AJML, then the normalized value for the TWENTY_NINE_CHARACTER_SOURCE_TITLE_ABBREVIATION column will be used and all entries with the same value will be merged. In the case that an entry does not contain a value for the TWENTY_NINE_CHARACTER_SOURCE_TITLE_ABBREVIATION column, a random, unique value will be used for the merging.
