Scholar Citations—Google Moves into the Domain of Web of Science and Scopus
by Nancy K. Herther
On July 20, 2011, Google formally launched Google Scholar Citations (GSC) to provide "a simple way for scholars to keep track of citations to their articles." Citing the fact that this represents "a new direction us," GSC is "currently in limited launch with a small number of users," although some researchers have been able to create profiles in the past week. Author profiling, rising from the need to better disambiguate researchers and to better find and connect relevant researchers, has become an increasingly hot product area in the past 2 years, attracting the interests of such powerhouses as Thomson Reuters (Web of Science), Elsevier (Scopus), and Microsoft.

Inmagic’s New Idea Management System for Collaborative Innovation
by Paula J. Hane
Idea management systems are one way to approach innovation and product development. They provide a structured and disciplined approach for managing idea generation, capture, collaboration, assessment, implementation, and outcome monitoring. In 2010, Gartner's Emerging Tech Hype Cycle put the technology as being 2-5 years from mainstream adoption. I hadn't really paid much attention to this category until the recent announcement by Inmagic of IdeaNet, its "next-generation innovation application," powered by Inmagic Presto.
