Via Google Scholar Blog – the official source of information about Google scholar, Google has recently released a Google Scholar Citations feature, which allows authors to compute their citation metrics and track them over time.
Here’s how it works. You can quickly identify which articles are yours, by selecting one or more groups of articles that are computed statistically. Then, we collect citations to your articles, graph them over time, and compute your citation metrics – the widely used h-index; the i-10 index, which is simply the number of articles with at least ten citations; and, of course, the total number of citations to your articles. Each metric is computed over all citations and also over citations in articles published in the last five years.
Dates and citation counts are estimated and are determined automatically by a computer program. New articles can be easily added to one’s profile. For more information, visit the official Google Scholar Blog here.
