Research Profiles

Overview

A free bibliography database  that indexes the full text or metadata of scholarly literature in a variety of formats and disciplines. It includes a feature where a scholar can construct a personal profile of published works that will gather citations in as they are discovered by Google and creates metrics like the H-index and a graph of the number of times the scholar is cited.
