Google Scholar Citations

Google is launching a new service: Google Scholar Citations. Like Google+ the service is only available to a select invited few at the moment. It will allow users to update and correct their profiles much like the Author Search service in Scopus but it seems in a more user-friendly fashion. This will include merging multiple entries into a single article, a function provided by Publish or Perish. But of course, in Google's version this will make permanent changes to Google's database. This will help improve the quality of Google Scholar, which is still a very noisy bibliometric source.
