This section covers the use of Google Scholar for citation counts and identifies other applications that can be used with the resulting citation counts to provide additional functionality and information. The material presented here is divided into the following categories:
Citation Searching in Google Scholar
The citation information in Google Scholar is extracted from the scholarly journal articles within the Scholar database and from the U.S. patents contained in the Google Patents database. Users have the option to eliminate the patents as the source of citation data and/or the option to include citations from legal journals and opinions from the federal and state courts. If a publication has been cited by these sources, it will contain a "Cited By Link" in its entry; clicking on that link will display the citing journal articles and patents (and the court opinions, if selected)
How to Find Citation Counts via Google Scholar and "Who is Citing Whom"
Many researchers are finding it handy to use Google Scholar to find references to journal citations. The steps outlined below describe how researchers at NMSU can customize Google Scholar to facilitate exporting the citations to EndNoteWeb.
First, about Google Scholar:
Setting the preferences is necessary when using a computer with an off-campus IP address. This will let you use the New Mexico State University Library Full-Text @ NMSU links for citations as well as export the citations to EndNote Basic.
