What is Google Scholar Citations?


What is Google Scholar Citations?

Google Scholar Citations provide a simple
way for authors to keep track of citations to their articles. You can
check who is citing your publications, graph citations over time, and
compute several citation metrics. You can also make your profile public,
so that it may appear in Google Scholar results when people search for
your name.

It's quick to set up and simple to maintain. You can add groups of
related articles, not just one article at a time; and your citation
metrics are computed and updated automatically as Google Scholar finds
new citations to your work on the web. You can choose to have your list
of articles updated automatically or review the updates yourself, or to
manually update your articles at any time.

On the Google Scholar page click on the My Citations
icon on the top right. You DO need to have a Google Account to use My
Citations. If you do not have one, you can easily set one up.


Be aware

  • Google Scholar does not index all scholarly articles; therefore, some articles citing the item under study may not be counted.
  • Author names can be tricky to search and the results can vary
    greatly depending on how the name is entered; we recommend searching
    only the author's last name and combining that with the main title in
  • Google Scholar includes citations from an array of sources in its
    cited by calculation, including PowerPoints and Word documents, and
    gives everything an equal rank.
  • Variants in how the item is cited can result in more than one entry for the item under study.
  • The term "citation" in brackets [CITATION] at the beginning of an
    entry, indicates that the full text of the item is not accessible
    through Google Scholar.
