Informal Review of Thomson-Reuters Data Citation Index
April 17, 2014 Leave a comment
The Thomson-Reuters Data Citation Index (DCI) has been up and running for just over a year. Amy West posted a blog reviewing the Data Citation Index (DCI) based on a trial at her institution, the University of Minnesota (UMN). West says in her blog that, “(w)hat makes the DCI interesting is that puts datasets and journal literature into a single platform, namely Thomson-Reuter’s Web of Science (WoS). Within the overall WoS, there is a core collection that constitutes the default search for subscribers. We know from our own statistics as well as vendor supplied statistics that our users do indeed go to WoS.”
Her blog post includes a link to notes with more details about the DCI trial.
