TRANSPARENT RANKING: CRIS by Google Scholar (January 2019)

TRANSPARENT RANKING: CRIS by Google Scholar

5th Edition (January 2019)

          During the last months, we realized the indexing of records of several open access repositories by Google Scholar is not as complete as previously without a clear reason. From the experience of a few cases, it looks that GS penalizes error in the metadata descriptions, so it is important to the affected repositories to check their level of indexing and to try to identify potential problems.

          Please, consider the following Indexing GS guidelines
          https://scholar.google.com/intl/en/scholar/inclusion.html
          https://www.or2015.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/or-2015-anurag-google-scholar.pdf

          and the following material: Exposing Repository Content to Google Scholar

          As a service for the OA community we are providing four lists of repositories (all (institutional+subject), institutional, portals and CRIS) with the raw numbers of records in GS for their web domains (site:xxx.yyy.zz excluding citations and patents) ranked by decreasing number of items as collected during the the LAST week of JANUARY 2019. The list is still incomplete as we are still adding new repositories.

          As usual, you can contact our editor (Isidro F. Aguillo) for any comment or suggestion.

This ranking has been funded by the CSIC Intramural 201710E077
