To affirm what Eric and Tom said, we use BibApp but collecting publication data and disambiguating authors is a huge, person-intensive chore. And that's speaking as a small-ish medical center that can rely on PubMed to source 80-90% of our data.

We're hoping that ORCID will make a big difference. We're just getting ready to push our verified publication data to ORCID profiles for our researchers.

Cornell has done some work on author-name disambiguation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44PVULsDk24

Subject: Re: [CODE4LIB] Faculty publication database

Hi all,

I was the lead developer for BibApp at UW-Madison.  BibApp is a neat tool and worth consideration for Ruby/Solr folk.

However, the project lost momentum at UW because we could not capture enough data to approach faculty expectations that the database be _truly comprehensive_.  We harvested citation data via APIs, collected paper CVs, brokered our way into obtaining copies of annual merit review exercises, but still we could not capture enough publication data.  Ultimately, seeing the amount of staff cost for data collection, for building a non-comprehensive tool, the library decided to back away.

In the sciences you'll have far better luck, but in the humanities it's a complete mess.  Good luck finding citations for all the public radio appearances the Chair of the English department expects to see on their profile...

It's an unwinnable war.  I still cry at night.

Cheers,
- Eric
