Bibliometrics with Google Scholar

December 22nd, 2008

New to me:
Software aimed at individual scholars whose work is referenced outside of ISI-listed sources.

“Publish or Perish is a software program that retrieves and analyzes academic citations. It uses Google Scholar to obtain the raw citations, then analyzes these and presents the following statistics:

  • Total number of papers
  • Total number of citations
  • Average number of citations per paper
  • Average number of citations per author
  • Average number of papers per author
  • Average number of citations per year
  • Hirsch’s h-index and related parameters
  • Egghe’s g-index
  • The contemporary h-index
  • The age-weighted citation rate
  • Two variations of individual h-indices
  • An analysis of the number of authors per paper.”

Free for personal non-profit use; Linux and Windows versions

I’d be very curious to hear about research comparing it to other methods. The author is professor of management and marketing at The University of Melbourne.
