Google Scholar My Profile

Google Scholar My Profile is a free online tool.

  • Citations are collected from Google Scholar generating an h-index and i10-index (the number of publications with at least 10 citations).
  • Citation metrics and graphs in the profile are automatically updated by Google Scholar.
  • You can also manually add publications that are not indexed by Google Scholar to your Profile.
  • If your publications are currently not available in Scopus or Web of Science but are available in Google Scholar, Google Scholar My Profile is an alternative place to find citation numbers and h-index.
