TOOLS Europe 2011 — Day 2

By: Alexandre Bergel

Abstract

My name is Alexandre Bergel and this blog entry is about the second day of the TOOLS EUROPE 2011 conference. The day is opened by Judith Bishop, the program co-chair. Before introducing the day's keynote speaker, Frank Tip, Judith briefly introduced the new Microsoft Academic Search facility; it allows you to search for papers, co-author, impact factor (http://academic.research.microsoft.com). I was surprised at how intuitive it is. Beside the classical g & h indexes and graph of coauthors, it has some exotic features, for example, who cites you the most. It also produces an interactive graph of citations, which is at the very least entertaining.
