What our customers ask us

What specific features are you referring to when you call it a scholar-centric or research-centric offering?

A great example of a few scholar-centric features would be:

  • The Publications app - once you add a publication to an OpenScholar website the publication can automatically be pushed to different repositories. Additionally, you can set bibliographic format styles display styles and use custom publications widgets to display certain types of content related to Publications.

  • The Classes app - helps faculty display and organize the classes that they have or do teach.

  • The Software app that allows individuals to promote the software they have developed, etc.

Do you link to ORCID? Which scholar repositories do you link to?

Currently we link to Google Scholar and RePEc. Anytime you add a publication to your OpenScholar site, Google Scholar and/or RePEc gets notified depending on your site and school install setting preferences.

We are currently working on an integration with ORCID and it will be released shortly.

We allow content from online repositories & softwares like PubMed, MARC, Endnote to be imported into OpenScholar websites. Additionally, OS websites can be configured to allow users to export citations right from the website.

How does the citation tracking feature work? What makes it so special?

Citation tracking allows the site owner to check a box (in advance during site-configuration), that will automatically push any of his or her new publications, journal entries, essays or published academic research to the correct scholarly repository, thereby increasing visibility, searchability and citation counts for that published work.
