Scope helps IEEE build author-name database

Share this on social media:

Scope eKnowledge Center (Scope) will support the IEEE to build a unique author name database. IEEE plans to create a database of author data extracted from more than 2.5 million journal articles and conference proceedings contained in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. The partnership with Scope is intended to cleanup the existing metadata in order to ensure quality disambiguation and the highest level of excellence in the final database product.

Scope says that it will take a technology-assisted approach to achieve this, engaging skilled professionals experienced in the nuances of researcher names and affiliation data while also employing software tools for data validation and enrichment.
