TRANSPARENT RANKING: CRIS / PURE by Google Scholar (October 2018)

TRANSPARENT RANKING: CRIS/PURE by Google Scholar

3rd Edition (October 2018)

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.

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 first week of OCTOBER 2018. 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
