Resource Reports Information

Resource Reports

The dkNET Resource Reports provides a detailed overview of individual research resources along with citation metrics from the biomedical literature, community feedback and alerts, and information about who is using the resource.

    A. Resource Name Section

    The Resource Name section includes the resource name, the RRID (Research Resource Identifier), and the proper citation of the resource allowing researchers to easily cite this resource in a paper or grant.

    What are RRIDs (Research Resource Identifiers)? RRIDs are are unique identifiers for research resources. RRIDs provide uniformity in regards to the citation and tracking of resources, and have been adopted by many publishers and agencies involved in reproducibility in the scientific community.

    B. Resource Information Section

    The resource information section provides a detailed overview of the selected resource. The information is aggregated from the following sources depending on the resource type:

    C. Usage and Citation Metrics Section

    The Usage and Citation Metrics section provides researchers a simple way to explore citations of the use of this resource. Researchers can use this information to help them make a more information decision about using the resources in a study. The "View All" feature in this section provides a year distribution chart of articles, full list of articles, and additional filters.

    Currently, the citation information is updated automatically as the RRID-based text mining pipeline (see Table 1) finds new papers that cite this resource from the PubMed Central (PMC) Open Access Subset (OA Subset). As of November, 2018, there were over 2 million articles available in PMC Open Access Subset. The dkNET team is continuously working on expanding citation data from more publishers (see Table 2 for updated coverage), and the goal is to increase this number to 3 million articles by Summer 2019.

    While we are expanding our citation data, for your convenience, we have also created a link to help you to directly find articles that have mentioned RRIDs via Google Scholar.

    We normally update data in Usage and Citation Metrics section monthly. However, it may take 6 months or longer for PMC to have most recent published articles.

    Please refer to here for a complete list of the journals currently covered.

    D. Collaborator Network Section

    The Collaborator section provides a researcher search tool to find a list of researchers (name, institution, location) who have used the resource. Researchers can find collaborators near their location or at a specific institution or in a specific city or state.

    *This section is still a work in progress. We currently have good coverage for some locations such as Los Angeles, San Diego, and Boston areas, but not all areas are covered in Collaboration Network yet.

    E. Ratings and Alerts Section

    The Ratings and Alerts section provides researchers information on the resource rating, validation, and alerts of problematic resources when available.

    Currently, rating and validation information are aggregated from the following sources:

    The cell line alert data is aggregated from Cellosaurus (RRID:SCR_013869). Cellosaurus also includes a list of contaminated cell lines updated from International Cell Line Authentication Committee (ICLAC).

    Our data in Rating and Alerts information is normally updated weekly.

    The dkNET team is continuously working on expanding rating and alert data from other sources. If you have any source recommendations, please contact us at info@dknet.org.

    F. Data and Source Information Section

    The Data and Source Information section provides the source of the aggregated resource information. Additionally, if the resource is a resource provider and has resources or data indexed at dkNET, the information is listed in this section.

    A. Usage Section

    The Usage section provides researchers a chart for the number of articles that mentioned the resources each year.

    B. Other Research Resources Frequently Mentioned with This Resource Section

    This section provides researchers the information about what other resources (the top 6) are frequently mentioned together with this resource. Researchers can find other resources that are used together with the resource or highly related to the resource. The number of publications represents how many times the resources have been co-mentioned.

    C. Additional Report Filters Section

    The Additional Report Filters section provides researchers filters such as RRID usage, Institution/Organization, City, State/Region/Province. Researchers can find articles with authors near their location or at a specific institution or in a specific city or state. In addition, researchers are able to list articles that contain a specific RRID mention of the resource.
