Google Scholar Citations


Google Scholar Citations profiles have become very common among researchers.  Although you can add keywords to describe your research and a link to a webpage, this profile is mainly about listing your publications and the citations to them found in Google Scholar.  These will appear automatically as new citations appear.  The profile will also include a bar chart of your citations over time and calculate an h-index for you (based on the Google Scholar data).  Google Scholar Citations nearly always finds more citations to your work than the commercial databases Web of Science and Scopus and is particularly helpful to scholar in the humanities and social sciences as it will find more citations to books, book chapters, and open access deposits.
