A team at Indiana University created Scholarometer to "facilitate citation analysis and help evaluate the impact of an author's publications." The crowdsourced data created through the Scholarometer platform is available through the Scholarometer API that allows developers to track certain authors through name, citation, disciplines, relevance, and other metrics.
Here at ProgrammableWeb, we love using mashups and APIs to help make our lives better in many ways. Just as mashups can take multiple APIs and piece something new together, you can do that with multiple mashups. For example, let's say we're going to host a party. Well, we'd need music, food, other entertainment and a way to connect people together. The mashups listed below can help you with all of this.
