3. There may be more than one S. Anandakrishnan, or R.B. Alley, in the world. One way to tell them apart is to check the address, which is also listed in the Web of Science. The Web of Science actually tries to help you. If you make sure to click the tab near the upper left that says “Web of Science” rather than “All Databases” before you do the search, it provides a “View Distinct Author Sets” option. In this case, don’t mess with that. Just search on Anandakrishnan S in the Web of Science, and find the paper by J.F. Lawrence, D.A. Wiens and others from 2006. Is this the same S. Anandakrishnan from Penn State’s Geosc10 that you know as Dr. A? (If you find a Penn State address in the list below, you may assume that itis the same Dr. A you know, and if you don't find a Penn State address, you may assume that the author is a different S. Anandakrishnan; we won't make you click through other Dr. A references to make sure) A) YesB) NoFeedback: Although there are many people named S. Anandakrishnan in the world, you found our friend Dr. A, as well as Penn State colleagues Don Voigt and Andy Nyblade. Points Earned: 1.0/1 .0 Correct Answer(s):4. As described in the introduction to this exercise, citations are very important in the scientific literature. They show where ideas or techniques came from, who has done similar work, and more. The Web of Science used to be called the Science Citation Index, and started out keeping track of citations in scientific papers. This allows you to work forward and back. For example, search on Anandakrishnan S, and find the paper from 2004 first-authored by then-graduate-student (now researcher) J.P. Winberry, published in Geology. This is an important paper on the volcanic history of the rocks beneath the West Antarctic ice sheet. If you click on the blue title of the paper, you will see “Times Cited:” in black, followed by a numberin blue (that number increases over time), and “References: 38” with “38” in blue. Clicking on the blue “38” will tell you all of the papers that Paul Winberry relied on in preparing his paper. Clicking on the blue number after “Times Cited” will tell you all of the papers who have cited Paul Winberry’s paper, and thus are relying on it. Click on the “Times Cited” number. There is more than one page of papers citing the Winberry and Anandakrishnan paper. Who was the first author of the only paper published in 2006 (in Earth-Science Reviews) that cited the Winberry and Anandakrishnan paper?Note: The world is not perfect, and sometimes an entry will end up slightly out of order compared to what you’re expecting. In particular, these are ordered based on the time they reach the indexing service, not based on the publication date. So if at first you don’t see what you’re looking for, scan up and down a bit.
