Mixed up fields

This is caused by garbled information returned by Google Scholar, presumably because its sources were inaccurate or difficult to parse automatically by Google's web crawler.

Since Version 3.0 of Publish or Perish duplicates can be merged into the master record. See Section 2.1.3 for further details.
