Beyond Citations and Toward Connecting the Dots

Darrell Gunter, of Collexis, demonstrates the "fingerprint" of one researcher’s network

It’s rather like citation indexing on steroids, at least that was my immediate impression of Collexis, a relatively new-to-market search system, which uses biomedical research data to establish "fingerprints" of researchers’ publising activities, along their relationships to other researchers in the field.  But, as Darrell Gunter explained, the real power of the system appears to be its ability to map trends and help researchers generate hypotheses.  It’s search beyond discovery.
