How Many Publications are Found in Synapse, Your Connection to MSK Authors?

Every month, the Synapse Team keeps busy locating new publications written by our authors, adding them to the Synapse database, cleaning and enhancing the metadata, and assigning them to our author’s profile pages. And when the monthly work is done, we do not rest! The team then moves on to retrospective content, with the goal to one day have a single database containing the citations for all publications from MSK back to 1884.

In the last year, the team added a total of 11,980 works to Synapse. About half of those account for new works, published in 2019, or late arrivals from 2018. The other half covers our retrospective work, which as of last week now goes back to 1991. This means Synapse now contains the publishing output of MSK for the last 29 years.

As of today, Synapse has a total of 78,157 publications– works including journal articles, meeting abstracts, conference proceedings, and books.
