Server crash? RRS feed

  • Question

  • The link to Microsoft Academic Search/organisational comparison  has just broken (MS server not local connection). Any reason why? This needs to be a resilient tool. Thanks

  • We appreciate your feedback! We can certainly look into adding a function to compare more than two universities at a time as we continue to improve the site and user experience. Please let us know if there's any other support we can provide.

  • Many thanks - yes, it's all working fine now and I've been able to use the facility to produce a fantastic piece of analysis across a number of institutions - a superb suite of programs in my humble opinion. Are there any plans to add a means of comparing more than two universities at a time? That would be very helpful in building profiles quickly as would the ability to save multiple searches as a single project for subsequent re-use. But well done on what you've done here.
