Rationale

CoolCite is a CV-based portal: Scholars report about their academic background, teaching experience, advising of students, research grants and awards, presentations in conferences, reviews for journals, participation in committees, visiting positions, as well as publications. CoolCite is suitable for all academic fields--from the natural sciences and medicine to the social sciences and the humanities. The system also collects information from external sources---including, for example, citations. The portal provides comprehensive information about academic work at the individual, departmental, center, institute and country levels. CoolCite is updated immediately when new data becomes available, and provides alerts that allow researchers to be notified about the activities of other researchers, long before such research makes it into academic publications or other academic websites.
