Google Scholar Citations

Google Scholar Profiles are useful for capturing citations information if you publish in disciplines which are not well covered by databases like Web of Science or Scopus. Google Scholar covers more disciplines and a wider range of scholarly material available on the internet and you will generally observe higher numbers of publications and higher citation counts for your publications.

You can set up your own Google Scholar Profile by following the guide below.
