Scholarly Impact

Learn how to use various tools to evaluate scholarly output.

Cited Reference Search

It is relatively easy to view "times cited" in Google Scholar.  What we don't know is which publications are indexed, how far back it goes and which books are included.

  1. Use 'Advanced search'
  2. Input author's name and publication year range.
  3. Search Scholar to retrieve author's articles.
  4. Check that articles are correctly attributed to the author, and add up the citaiton counts.

Google Scholar Citations

Google Scholar Citations allows you to check who is citing your publications, graph citations over time, and easily 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.

To begin this process you must have a Google account; use this link to sign up for a new Google Account. Once you have a Google account, use this link to set up your Google Citation page. You may choose to make this page public or keep the information private.
