NYU Scholars automatically captures publication information from the Scopus database while allowing faculty and their proxies to correct and augment those data.
Project staff assembled initial publication lists for included faculty to replicate CVs submitted in fall 2015. Abstracts, interviews, submitted work, and conference presentations without evidence of a related publication are excluded.
Those initial lists are continuously updated by automatic additions from Scopus and faculty editing.
The Fingerprint Engine automatically identifies concepts in free text documents, such as publication abstracts. The Fingerprint Engine mines the free text using a variety of Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques, identifies the concepts that define the text, and produces a semantic index, or fingerprint, of weighted terms that represents the text.

When viewing Research Output in the NYU Scholars Public Portal, each publication will contain an Altmetric icon on the right-hand side. Clicking on this icon will display an Altmetric details page, showing the online attention and activity for the selected publication. The Altmetric page will show all conversations surrounding the publication, collected from social media sites, newspapers, policy documents, blogs, Wikipedia, and many other sources.
To help put the data in context, an Altmetric score has been given for each publication. The Altmetric score is a high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. The scoring algorithm takes various factors into account, such as the relative reach of the different sources of attention.
