This site is an ambitious project to facilitate searches for book chapters, working papers, conference papers, and other types of publications and academic research not commonly indexed.

The project is off to a running start with over 315,000 identities and 3,250,000 publications indexed, but the site creators are requesting the cooperation of "the entire academic community.

Scholars are encouraged to register with the site (for free) and enter in the details of their publications.

Anyone may search the database for publications, identities, institutions, or departments, but only registered members may add or edit content.

A free database created solely by and for researchers and scholars is an attractive idea and deserves support.

It must be noted, however, that like so many other free online services, getCITED is searching for advertisers and sponsors and does not appear to have long-term guaranteed funding.

A strong showing of support and interest from the academic community may make this task easier.
