Agencies like the National Science Foundation require researchers to provide Collaborator and Other Affiliations (COA) reports that list every collaborator connected to a publication or completed thesis. In some cases, the list of collaborators can number in the thousands. The Library has scripts and API access that can automatically generate reports from various sources in a comprehensive and reproducible fashion. Using tools like CaltechAUTHORS, Web of Science, InCites in Clarivate Analytics, and the Astrophysics Data System, we can collect and compile collaborator reports that meet agency specifications. We also use the data in CaltechTHESIS to complete thesis-related reports.
