June 18, 2011 – Analyzing Array Express for Data Reuse

Today I finished analyzing the articles collected yesterday from Google Scholar for the Array Express datasets.  After removing a few articles because they were duplicates of the published Data Collection Article, either in thesis or report form, I was left with a total of 30 articles.  Of these, 1 had an import error from Google Scholar so the article could not be located and I did not have full-text access to 3 articles.  Of the 26 remaining articles, 20 showed dataset reuse, 4 had ambiguous datatset reuse, and 2 had the dataset reused as an example, usually a generic dataset chosen to explain different functionality or limitations of the datasets in a data repository.  These tags and associated citations can be seen the Array Express – GS Mendeley group.
