Microsoft "Scholar"?

I recently came across this website - a kind of alternatvie to Google Scholar. Much of the information is incorrect concerning co-authors, publications and citations, but the graphics are interesting.

I didn't even know that such a thing existed from Microsoft. My thanks for the link, I'm preparing to dig in now!

I like their interface! but I can confirm that the co-authorship info (the names) is crossly incorrect and outright bizzarre, its not linking the wrong people, but altering their surname very badly?

I wonder how easy it is to edit an author profile and fix the wrong names of contributing authors... it is interresting to see the graphis showing you authorship relationship swith others.
