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 - even if you have written hundreds of articles, and even if your name is shared by several different scholars. 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. Google Scholar then calculates metrics based on your identified articles: all and recent versions of the h-index, i10-index, and total number of citations.
You can sign up for a Google Scholar Citations profile. It's quick and free.
Author identities are a solution for uniquely identifying authors, who can publish under multiple names (including maiden names), have similar names and initials, and be cited in different ways with different citation styles. By connecting publications with these unique identities, authors can reduce ambiguity and ensure proper citation counts and other metrics, improving their research impact.
