Description James MacGregor 2010-07-07 09:49:44 PDT
As per http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=6309&p=24234#p24234: 

Create "soft links" between author information and user roles, so that:

1. submitting authors can look up authors already in the system and not have to manually enter their metadata (ideally in some sort of jQueryified smart dropdown);
2. metadata inconsistencies are caught and flagged, reducing author record duplicates. 

Somewhat a dupe of Bug 4653?

Also note that this work could eventually include ORCID support (http://www.orcid.org/) depending on where/how they go.
