  • Hi, You don't cover the AISTATS (Artifical Intelligence and Statistics) conference which is a major annual event. It was biennial until 2009. Can you please add this to your coverage?

  • Hi

    How can we get Physical Review X, the new journal of the American Physical Society, indexed?

  • Hi Jorge,

    Thank you for your note.  APS has recently agreed to be indexed by Microsoft Academic Search.  All APS journal content, including PRX, will soon be processed and start appearing in the service.

    Best Regards,

  • Indeed, Jorge.  It is taking a bit of time to set up the data feed.  Thank you for your patience. I can assure you this is in the works.

    Best Regards,

  • Hello,

    how often do you index the libraries of these publishers?

    E.g. I see a conference paper in the Digital Library of ACM, and it is not indexed yet. To be more specific: it was published in the AICPS series, which is only available for the year range 1990-2006 in your search engine.

    Best regards,

  • Hi--

    My Microsoft author listing is so inaccurate and non-representative of my publications, and yet you don't allow hand entry of citations, your PDF uploading tool fails consistently (e.g., a recent JAMA article of mine), and an author requires "approval" for editing his/her profile.  On Pubmed, I have 43 publications; my Microsoft profile lists 32 including book reviews that are not listed by Pubmed.  My institutional information is over >1 year old.

    How will these issues be rectified?

  • I see that the rrecent publications of Springer, such as Lecture Notes in Computer Science ICCSA 2013 are not included in the authors' profiles.

    Also other important conferences, such as WI-IAT 2012 are not covered. 

    From a first look, what I can see is that the DB is not updated.

    Is there a way to suggest new papers to add to a profile? thanks.

  • Hello franzova,

    Thank you for reaching out to us, and apologies for the delayed response. We are working on indexing additional content in Microsoft Academic Search. In the meantime, it is possible for users to add publications to an author profile via BibTeX, PDF URL, or by completing a form. If you'd like to learn more about how to add publications, see our help documentation.

    Please let us know if we can assist further.

    Best regards,

    Thomas, Academic Search Editor
