This is great to know – especially the 10,000 citation figure – thank you.

You may be interested to know we’re concurrently working on a revised “research tracking and reporting” problem that may involve EndNote.

I’m proposing our various research programs train their program assistants to keep track of the various “fruits of research effort” in a local bibliographic citation management software.

Ideally, they could then “ship” the PNW research station the bibliographic records at reporting time.

PNW would then upload bibliographic citations into a “master database,” possibly EndNote web.

I’d also like to see some kind of workflow that allows RITS to ingest new bibliographic citations.

Once a publication is uploaded to RITS, do you (FS Library) get the metadata for FS Info?

If not, would be happy to include a provision in the hypothetical workflow for “ship copy of latest bibliographic data to FS Library.”

Currently, the research programs are independently tracking their research publications in various “homemade” databases. As you can imagine, this has led to problems.

I drew up a conceptual diagram for a hypothetical workflow, using Zotero as the bibliographic citation management tool.

I’ll likely recommend EndNote in a finalized workflow since a) you’ve already put together the handy documentation for it b) I now know that EndNote Web is license-free, and c) I notice it has more “item types” than Zotero does.

I am a recent M.S. in Information Science graduate from the University of Tennessee School of Information Science. I was formerly a graduate research assistant funded by DataONE (Data Observation Network for Earth). Prior, I worked for four years as a content lead and biodiversity scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey's Biodiversity Informatics Program. Building on my work experience in biodiversity and environmental informatics, my work with DataONE focused on exploring the nature of scientific collaborations necessary for scientific inquiry. I also conducted research concerning user experience and usability, and assisted in development of member nodes with an emphasis on spatial data and infrastructure. I assisted with research designed to understand sociocultural issues within collaborative research communities. Through August 1, 2014, I was based at the Center for Information and Communication Studies at the University of Tennessee School of Information Science in Knoxville, Tennessee.
