FYI: Academic Database, Generative Linguists
Members of LINGUIST might find http://www.getCITED.org of interest. It's a site tha|
some colleagues and I have put together that, in essence, is yet another academic
database, albeit one that can be searched in a wide variety of ways. What makes this
one different is that it allows the academic community to enter in and edit its
contents. Thus, researchers can enter in the citation details of their publications
(and others' publications) and then link these to a public identity that they
create. They can also link references, faculties, universities and the like, with
the result being a rich web of academic information.
The site's been up and running in beta version for about a year now, and was
initially seeded with data from the Library of Congress. If people have any
questions, they can send them my way.
