Abstract: This research describes a general method to automatically clean organizational and business names variants within large databases, such as: patent databases, bibliographic databases, databases in business information systems, or any other database containing organisational name variants. The method clusters name variants of organizations based on similarities of their associated meta-data, like, for example, postal code and email domain data. The method is divided into a rule-based scoring system and a clustering system. The method is tested on the cleaning of research organisations in the Web of Science database for the purpose of bibliometric analysis and scientific performance evaluation. The results of the clustering are evaluated with metrics such as precision and recall analysis on a verified data set. The evaluation shows that our method performs well and is conservative, it values precision over recall, with on average 95% precision and 80% recall for clusters.
