Collapsing Duplicates at Data Entry: Design Issues in Building Taiwan Citations Index

  • Chia-Ning Chiang
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8839)


When building citation indexes, citation entries are found duplicated and variant by nature at the time of data entry. This paper’s aim is to describe the design concept and functions supported by the Taiwan Citation Index – Humanities and Social Sciences system (TCI system) for collapsing duplicated entries while also improving the quality of citations.
