Massenhaft Fehler in Zitationsindizes

http://adresscomptoir.twoday.net/stories/1022591396/ weist auf eine Dissertation von Terje Tüür-Fröhlich hin.

„The main findings: SSCI records contain tremendous amounts of “trivial errors”, not only misspellings and typos as previously mentioned in bibliometrics and scientometrics literature. But Tüür-Fröhlich’s research documented fatal errors which have not been mentioned in the scientometrics literature yet at all. Tüür-Fröhlich found more than 80 fatal mutations and mutilations of Pierre Bourdieu (e.g. “Atkinson” or “Pierre, B. and “Pierri, B.”). SSCI even generated zombie references (phantom authors and works) by data fields’ confusion — a deadly sin for a database producer — as fragments of Patent Laws were indexed as fictional author surnames/initials. Additionally, horrific OCR-errors (e.g. “nuxure” instead of “Nature” as journal title) were identified.“
