Heading conflicts
There should never be two different series in Voyager with exactly the same heading.

If two series have the same title, a qualifier in parenthesis must be added to one of them.

If you encounter a conflict, that is, you find a heading in Voyager which is the same as the title of your series but has a different publisher or corporate body associated with it, attempt to resolve the conflict by adding a qualifier to the new series. If you are unable to break the conflict, consult your team leader or the Authorities Coordinator.
