LINKS are the life blood of getCITED. The
more LINKS, the more useful getCITED becomes. getCITED is unique in its capacity
to link people and academic research. We built many linking possibilities into
the site to increase the chance that members can find what they want, and find
it more quickly.
Here are some of the many linking possibilities available:
- Your URL, e-mail address, university and department.
- In your PUBLICATIONS list,
you can link to all your PUBLICATIONS,
co-authors, translators, editors, publishers and onlineAGORA DGROUPS
to which you subscribe.
- Your linked publications can be linked to all publications you used as
and all the publications that cited your work.
- In the STATISTICS
box, you can click viewers to see LINKS to all
members that viewed the publication screen, and click RATINGS to find LINKS to
all members that rated the publication.
- The AUDIT TRAIL displays LINKS
of all members that helped build your getCITED IDENTITY.
As you can see, the site provides potential to build a very rich network of academic research.
It is important to differentiate between adding content and creating LINKS.
You may, for example, be a graduate student who wants to add a reference to your dissertation to the database.
Once you add the dissertation, you then have to link it to your getCITED IDENTITY, otherwise
the dissertation will not be "credited" to you, i.e. it will not
appear in your getCITED CV. You can also help out your colleagues by creating
their LINKS for them. The AUDIT TRAIL
lets them know that it was you who did them the favour.
