A CiteSeerX Search Service is a Scholarly Literature Search Service.



    • QUOTE:'CiteSeerX (stylized as CiteSeerx[1]) is a public search engine and digital library and repository for scientific and academic papers with a focus on computer and information science. It is loosely based on the previous CiteSeer search engine and digital library and is built with a new open source infrastructure, SeerSuite, and new algorithms and their implementations. It was developed by researchers Dr. Isaac Councill and Dr. C. Lee Giles at the College of Information Sciences and Technology, Pennsylvania State University. It continues to support the goals outlined by CiteSeer to actively crawl and harvest academic and scientific documents on the public web and to use a citation index to permit query by citations and ranking of documents by the impact of citations. Currently, Lee Giles, Prasenjit Mitra, Susan Gauch, Min-Yen Kan, Pradeep Teregowda, Juan Pablo Fernández Ramírez, Pucktada Treeratpituk, and Shuyi Zheng are or have been actively involved in its development. Recently, a table search feature was introduced.[2]

      CiteSeerX continues to be rated as one of the world's top repositories and was rated number 1 in July 2010.[3] It currently has over 1.5 million documents with nearly 1.5 million unique authors and 30 million citations.

      CiteSeerX also shares its software, data, databases and metadata with other researchers, currently by rsync.[4] Its new modular open source architecture and software (available on SourceForge) is built on Apache Solr and other Apache and open source tools which allows it to be a testbed for new algorithms in document harvesting, ranking, indexing, and information extraction.
