Something like SPIRES for condensed matter?

    Something like "SPIRES" for condensed matter?

    I'm trying to find (with no luck, obviously) some sort of database of people and papers in condensed matter physics, sort of like SPIRES is for the high energy community. Basically something where I can look up a professor and see a list of their publications and the impact of those papers by citation count.

    Condensed matter does not need a "spires"-like repository, because they tend to be the largest in wherever they go. So if you do look at the arxiv section of cond-mat, you can already see that anyone and everyone in condensed matter will upload their preprints/papers there.

    Also look in PROLA.

    Ah, thank you everyone. Essentially I did have in mind something like citebase.org (thanks!)... but they admit that their service is quite incomplete. Also, I use arxiv frequently, but it seems that the only way to gather citation information from there is... well... to use citebase.org!

    So I guess my next question: is their claim of incompleteness merely a disclaimer? Do they have "just about everything" or not even close?
