Title merge by ISSN

I think the system should be able to merge title by ISSN and eISSN, because it happens to have duplicate titles, because of a little variation in the TITLE.

Things like AND or &, ot THE JOURNAL in front of the title or JOURNAL, THE.

This happens in particular when a title is available with stats both from the publisher + stats from databases (for ex. Wiley and EDS discovery, or Wiley and JSTOR)

But also from the publisher itself, like the first example: all data from Springer, that changed a comma

for ex.

  • Forensic Science, Medicine and Pathology            1547-769X    1556-2891    
  • Forensic Science, Medicine, and Pathology            1547-769X    1556-2891        

  • Journal of Forensic Psychiatry & Psychology            1478-9949    1478-9957        
  • The Journal of Forensic Psychiatry & Psychology            1478-9949    1478-9957

Yes. Being able to consolidate or merge titles would be essential for evaluating OVERLAP. There should be some kind of "fuzzy" match that takes into account title as well as ISSN.
