Users are benefiting from the competition between Elsevier & Thomson

One of the conclusions of Garry Harrocks' comparison of Scopus and Web of Science is that "intense competition has bred innovation in author profiling and citation analysis" Via Dana Roth

I would be very interested to see if my colleagues at Scopus or Web of Science team will respond to Garry's observations.

According to Garry, one of the new features that WOS will introduce is the h-index.

Hi Rafael,

Most interesting screenshot from WoS. I really wonder when they will have it operational. Scopus is working at it too, though.
