  9. 9. 4 August 2011 | Nature 476, 18 (2011)(doi:10.1038/476018a)“…Meanwhile, Microsoft AcademicSearch (MAS), which launched in2009 and has a tool similar toGoogle Scholar, has over the pastfew months added a suite of niftynew tools based on its citationmetrics ( include visualizations ofcitation networks (see Mapping thestructure of science); publicationtrends; and rankings of the leadingresearchers in a field.”
  10. 10. Analyst CoverageOutsell: 10 to WatchGoogle Scholar and Microsoft Academic Search“Two giants from outside the main STM arena threaten to shake up the space for STMmetrics and analytical services. Google Scholar and Microsoft Academic Search announcednew functionalities that could disrupt those offered as commercial services from ThomsonReuter’s Web of Knowledge and Elsevier’s Scopus.”“Now Google Scholar is offering its own citation tracker functionality – free to use, ofcourse – that can allow authors to calculate performance metrics such as the h-index.Microsoft, meanwhile, has focused on adding functionality to its search results, such asdynamic lists of top authors/publications/journals/organisations.”
  11. 11. Outsell: A compelling user experience • “…There are a number of interesting features here which make it a good alternative to Google Scholar [emphasis added] – in particular, …it provides some nice graphics, and some handy links in the left bar to refine your search by particular authors, journals or keywords. • “The other tools on the Microsoft academic site are really well- implemented and a lot of fun as well, particularly if you’re a published researcher. • “You can use the co-author graph and citation graph tools to generate beautiful visual representations of who’s citing your work, or who you’re connected to through authorship…”** Ware, Mark (2011), “Scientific, Technical & Market Information: 2011 Market Forecast and Trends Report,” 13Outsell (November 30)

Next up…• Growth – More content coverage – Authenticated Access / Library Links (Associate Member) – Committed to implementing CrossMark – Exploring partnerships – New usage scenarios (including data citation) • Expanded content types (Founding Sponsor)• Our Commitments – MAS is a web service for researchers, by researchers. – We intend to be an open platform for the community, and we want to commit to the community to keep this service open, transparent, and a “sandbox” available to researchers for exploration and experimentation. – We are very interested to evolving this service to better represent how science/academia works. As protocols and/or standards emerge, we hope to embody these as part of MAS moving forward.
