    20. Negative citations important to scientific progress should be tracked, says new study.

      Negative citations important to scientific progress should be tracked, says new study.

      Negative citations are not necessarily a bad thing, says Nicola Lacetera, an associate professor of strategic management at the University of Toronto Mississauga who is also cross appointed to UofT's Rotman School of Management. Tracking those citations can reveal where there is particular 'vitality' in a research area, especially when there is controversy among scientists active in it.
