Testers needed for HistCite

Mar 15, 2004 by

Gene Garfield, president and editor-in-chief of The Scientist and Founder & Chairman Emeritus of the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) is looking for a few good librarians to test a new software product, HistCite.

HistCite(tm), a system for historiographic analysis. The HistCite(tm) software organizes bibliographic collections generated by searching Science Citation Index on the Web of Science(WOS) or SCI-CD-Rom. It enables you to track the evolution of papers, authors, and journals and graphically represent the chronology of the most influential papers on a topic.

In order to participate in the study, you must have access to Microsoft Windows, as well as access to the ISI Web of Science.

Examples of what HistCite can do are online.

You can email Gene Garfield or call 215-243-2205. Since Mr Garfield made his announcement on various newsgroups, he requests that you cite his message in your reply. You can find a copy here. More information is included as well.
