Interesting article -- this came across another listserv I'm on.  
- Calls for an audit of WoS data.  
- Suggests median measure
- Points to errors caused by article type designations.

Subject: GENERAL: accuracy of Thomson data

The Suber blog has a pointer to an interesting editorial in the J. Cell
Biology related to how articles are counted by Thomson ISI.

Rather than repost here, I'll give the reference to JCB.  (Worthwhile
for the cartoon alone!)
