The merging is performed as indicated in Merge Entities.  This algorithm uses an authoritative journal merging list (AJML).  It will first normalize the FULL_TITLE column from the SOURCE table.  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 normalize.   If the AJML contains this normalized value, all journals with the AJML's matching value will be merged together. If ; if it is does not found in contain the AJMLnormalized value, 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.
