Google Scholar Citation Profiles Receive a Makeover
We’re rolling out a complete visual refresh, along with several usability improvements.
Your publications are taking the center stage, while their aggregate citation metrics are moving to the sidebar. The “Follow” button is graduating to a more prominent spot, to make it easier for your fellow researchers to keep up with your latest articles. Working with a long list of publications is becoming more straightforward — you can load up to a thousand articles onto a page; and the “Merge”, “Delete”, and “Export” buttons always stay within easy reach on top of the screen.
We’ve also made it easier to print a nice, clean version of your profile. Your browser’s “print” button now removes the sidebar and the controls, and prints just the list of articles with a brief summary header. Pro tip: to print more than twenty articles, click “Show more” at the bottom of the profile.
