Equality of Google Scholar.pdf
uses citation analysis from two citation tracking databases, Google
Scholar (GS) and ISI Web of Science, in order to test the correlation
between them and examine the effect of the number of paper versions on
citations. The data were retrieved from the Essential Science Indicators
and Google Scholar for 101 highly cited papers from Malaysia in the
field of engineering. An equation for estimating the citation in ISI
based on Google scholar is offered. The results show a significant and
positive relationship between both citation in Google Scholar and ISI
Web of Science with the number of versions. This relationship is higher
between versions and ISI citations (r = 0.395, p<0.01) than between
versions and Google Scholar citations (r = 0.315, p<0.01). Free
access to data provided by Google Scholar and the correlation to get ISI
citation which is costly, allow more transparency in tenure reviews,
funding agency and other science policy, to count citations and analyze
scholars’ performance more precisely.
