Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, PNAS, joins SocialCite pilot
Date:5/20/2014

NEEDHAM, MA STRIATUS/JBJS, Inc., which offers the new qualitative citation measurement product SocialCite, is proud to announce that the National Academy of Sciences, with their journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), has joined the publishers participating in the pilot phase of SocialCite, which runs through 2014. The Academy joins Rockefeller University Press, the Genetics Society of America, and the American Physiological Society in the pilot.

Citations are recognized as a key measure of the impact of a scholarly publication. Yet, currently citations include no information about the reason a paper is cited or the quality of evidence being cited. SocialCite uses the existing citation networkthe citation linkages between papers plus researchers who interact with the literatureto measure the appropriateness and evidence strength of a citation.

By participating in SocialCite, participating publishers can offer their readers, researchers, and authors a free tool they can use to rate citations and track these citations and the journals they use through a free dashboard. In addition, the editors and publishers at these prestigious journals will have free access to journal-specific dashboards that will give them tools to evaluate the quality of reference lists and benchmark against other journals in the field.

"Interest and momentum keep growing around the SocialCite pilot," said Kent Anderson, CEO/Publisher at STRIATUS/JBJS, Inc. "PNAS has always been a leader in online publishing practices. It's great to have them participating in the pilot."

"SocialCite is an interesting experiment, and this is the right time for us to support it," said Diane Sullenberger, Executive Editor of PNAS. "We believe that initiatives designed to differentiate quality and to help readers and researchers discover fruitful new paths are vital to helping our scientists advance their ideas."
