We have developed a simple and effective service-driven workflow for capturing and re-using life sciences citation and publication data for core facilities and other organizational units. Our Publication and Citation Survey addresses the following challenges:
Our workflow is summarized:
User requesting service must provides 1) a list of users to be surveyed and 2) a list of cores or activities the publications are citations for, and 3) a list of seed publications (optional).
