Primary author appears to be set for more than one author.
Comment 2 Michael Felczak 2011-10-06 10:26:38 PDT
The following will result in the primary contact field being set for multiple authors:

- Save paper metadata with only one author.
- Edit paper metadata, add second author and designate as primary contact
Comment 3 Michael Felczak 2011-10-06 10:28:59 PDT
Likely affects OJS as well.

Multiple listing entries for single paper
Comment 5 Michael Felczak 2011-10-06 21:47:07 PDT
This was somewhat tricky to debug:
- reference to the first author was not being unset
- second author data overwrote first author data
- second author was inserted into the db
- second author was updated in the db
- first author was never updated
- first author primary contact was never set to 0

To restore a paper/article that is being displayed multiple times in a Director/Editor listing:

- apply the patch to your install
- edit the paper/article metadata
- save the paper/article metadata

This should reset the primary contact field so that it's set for only one author.

Good catch -- those reference glitches are tricky.
