Responsibilities

I am doing a quick study on the coverage of Web of Science vs Google Scholar.

I would like to take 100 faculty on Google Scholar from Stern/NYU (according to the following search https://scholar.google.com/citations?hl=en&view_op=search_authors&mauthors=stern.nyu.edu)

Then for each of the faculty members, we would like to conduct a search using their name. For example for Yakov Amihud, the search would be https://scholar.google.com/scholar?hl=en&q=Yakov+Amihud

For the top-10 citations, we would like to record the citations reported by Google Scholar ("Cited by XXX") and the number of citations reported by "Web of Science" ("Web of Science: YYY"). For the "Web of Science" link to appear, you need to be on NYU Campus and be logged in to https://apps.webofknowledge.com

The deliverable will be an Excel Spreasheet with 6 columns and ~1000 rows.

The columns:

Author, Publication, Journal, Year, Scholar Citations, WoS citations.

The rows will be one for each publication. We have 100 authors, and examine 10 publications for each, so that will be a total of 1000 rows.

Compensation

The job will pay $15/hr.

The job will take ~1-2 minutes per entry, so it will be a 15-30 hour job.

Total compensation will be between $250 - $500.
