Google Releases 2016 Version of Google Scholar Metrics

From the Google Scholar Blog Post by Anurag Acharya:

Scholar Metrics provide an easy way for authors to quickly gauge the visibility and influence of recent articles in scholarly publications.

Today, we are releasing the 2016 version of Scholar Metrics. This release covers articles published in 2011–2015 and includes citations from all articles that were indexed in Google Scholar as of June 2016.

Scholar Metrics include journal articles from websites that follow our inclusion guidelines, selected conference articles in Computer Science & Electrical Engineering and preprints from arXiv and NBER. Publications with fewer than 100 articles in 2011-2015, or publications that received no citations over these years are not included.


In this release, we have added per-language pages for five new languages – Russian, Korean, Polish,Ukrainian, and Indonesian.
