How can I add in citations of my work that haven't been picked up by Google Scholar?

I have found a citation of an article that I wrote but it isn't included in my metrics in Google Scholar. Is there a way to add this citation in so that it shows up in my metrcis?

Hi Bettina,

Yes you can do this. If you go to Google Scholar and look up your profile you'll see a little add button. Press it and then choose 'add article manually'

Thanks!

Hi Again,

Oh, I should add that while this will add something to your profile it won't count citations unless you can find the document in Google Scholar, which is actually a slightly different process. To do this don't choose add articles manually, choose add articles. 

Then in the search box, paste in the name of the article Google Scholar hasn't found automatically and see if it comes up. If it does you can then tick the checck box beside it and add it. 

In terms of my H-Index is

In terms of my H-Index is there no manual way to add in references to my work by other people? For example, a chapter in "i-Docs, The Evolving Practices of Interactive Documentary" 2017, Aston, J., Gaudenzi, S. & Rose, M. (eds) references an article I wrote but doesn't show up in the 'cited by' section of my Google Scholar profile.

Hi David,

thanks for your very detailed reply - great information! I was hoping to be able to find a way to add in instances where somebody else is citing/referencing something that I've written i.e. where one of my articles/chapters appears in someone else's reference list. Is that possible?

So long as that reference is

So long as that reference is available in Google Scholar somewhere then it should be ok. If it's a chapter then having it in the Symplectic system is an advantage as that will create a record in Google scholar. Without that a lot of chapters don't appear (though the books the chapters were published in should be there). For articles the chances are pretty good - I can look for some that you can't find if you like, though I probably won't get around to looking until Monday
