Google Scholar Citations is a feature of Google Scholar that allows you to monitor citations to your articles. Citation information is extracted from the scholarly articles within the Google Scholar database and from U.S. patents in the Google Patents database. Google Scholar is a subset of Google that is designed to search for scholarly publications, including journal articles, theses, books and reports. Documents retrieved from Google Scholar should be verified for accuracy.
Publish or Perish is a free, downloadable software program that retrieves and analyzes citations from Google Scholar and, to a limited degree, Microsoft Academic Search.
Publish or Perish provides an interface to search Google Scholar and allows you to choose the documents to include in the citation analysis. Google Scholar searches for journal articles, theses, books, reports and other scholarly literature. Documents retrieved from Google Scholar should be verified for accuracy.
Once you have selected the documents that you wish to analyze, Publish or Perish will provide:
Total number of documents
Total number of citations
Average number of citations per document and per year
Results from Publish or Perish can be exported to a citation manager (e.g. EndNote) or a CSV file, which can be opened in Excel.
