Google Scholar Citations
Google Scholar Citations allows authors to keep track of citations to their articles, graph citations over time, and compute several citation metrics (the h-index, i10-index, and the total number of citations for both All and Recent citations) by creating an author profile in which they identify all their articles for Google Scholar to track on an ongoing basis. Once you have a profile, new publications are automatically added and you will need to verify these records are your own.
Google Scholar Universal Gadget Citation Counter
You can add this gadget to your IGoogle page. The gadget gives the total citation count, the number of cited publications and the H-index for an author.
Publish or Perish (PoP)
PoP is downloadable software providing enhanced analysis of Google Scholar citation data. For more information and access to the software, see Publish or Perish on the Harzing.com website.THe variety of metrics available through PoP is described here.
This section covers the use of Google Scholar for citation counts and identifies other applications that can be used with the resulting citation counts to provide additional functionality and information. The material presented here is divided into the following categories:
Citation Searching in Google Scholar
The citation information in Google Scholar is extracted from the scholarly journal articles within the Scholar database and from the U.S. patents contained in the Google Patents database. Users have the option to eliminate the patents as the source of citation data and/or the option to include citations from legal journals and opinions from the federal and state courts. If a publication has been cited by these sources, it will contain a "Cited By Link" in its entry; clicking on that link will display the citing journal articles and patents (and the court opinions, if selected)
How to Find Citation Counts via Google Scholar and "Who is Citing Whom"
Many researchers are finding it handy to use Google Scholar to find references to journal citations. The steps outlined below describe how researchers at NMSU can customize Google Scholar to facilitate exporting the citations to EndNoteWeb.
First, about Google Scholar:
Setting the preferences is necessary when using a computer with an off-campus IP address. This will let you use the University of Arizona Library Full-Text @ UA links for citations, as well as export the citations to EndNote Basic.
