CiteSeerx beta is a scientific literature digital library and search engine that focuses on the scholarly literature (most of it Open Access) in computer and information science. The project was developed at and hosted by The College of Information Sciences and Technology at Pennsylvania State University.
With more than one (1.5) million citations, CiteSeerx aims to improve the access and dissemination of scientific literature. Further, it provides a search tool with improved functionality, usability and efficiency. CiteSeerx also provides other resources for researchers such as algorithms, data, metadata, services, techniques and software that can be used to promote digital libraries. CiteSeerx has developed new methods and algorithms to index PostScript and PDF research articles on the Web. CiteSeerx provides Open Archives Initiative (OAI) metadata of indexed documents and links indexed documents when possible to other sources of metadata, such as DBLP and the ACM portal.
Next generation - CiteSeerx
After serving as a public search engine for almost ten years, CiteSeer started to have scaling problems for handling of more documents, and was radically overhauled. Citeseerx is the new generation Citeseer. This model has been adapted for business with eBizSearch (formerly SmealSearch) - which is hosted at Penn State's Smeal College of Business. The next generation Citeseer project, CiteSeerx, is funded by the National Science Foundation and Microsoft Research. It enhances the original prototype as a search engine and digital library.
