In Pursuit of Soul


Last winter, it wasn’t hard finding the soul across twelve small, independent resorts in North America.

Global Research Report Making it count: Research credit management in a collaborative world


In the world of research, receipt of credit influences motivation and reputation. The way we count documents, and their citation links, is critical to promotion, funding and strategic decision making at the individual, institutional, and national levels.

In this report, the Institute for Scientific Information™:

  • examine how increasing international research collaboration and authorship is making it difficult to understand and interpret the allocation of credit,
  • propose a new metric – the Collaborative CNCI (Collab-CNCI) – a vital innovation for a period when international collaboration is becoming a dominant feature of global research, and
  • invite research users and managers to comment on the relative benefits of the Collab-CNCI in comparison and as a complement to other methods for enabling balanced and timely decisions at the individual, institutional and national levels.
