These are sets of data collected from the manual cross-validation of DOIs (and related research outputs) that are sampled from Web of Science (WoS), Scopus and Microsoft Academic (MSA). For each of the 15 universities, we initially collect all DOIs indexed by each of the three bibliographic sources. Subsequently, we randomly sample 40, 30 and 30 DOIs from sets of DOIs that are exclusively indexed by WoS, Scopus and MSA, respectively, for each university. A manual cross-validation process is then followed to validate certain characteristics across the data sources. This cross-validation process was carried out by a data wrangler, on a part-time basis over a few months, for which online data was accessed from 18 December 2018 to 20 May 2019.
