Google Scholar Author Profiles

I just discovered a great new (?) feature of Google Scholar called author profiles.

There a two great benefits:

  • You can “follow”  authors and automatically get an email alert whenever they have published a paper, in my opinion a great way to keep track of what is going on in your research field.
  • You can “follow” citations of authors and for instance automatically get an email alert when somebody cites your paper.

A minor but still interesting point is that you can create a public or private author profile where

  • all your publications are listed,
  • metrics like citation count, h-index, i10-index and so on are computed,
  • and you can enter a link to your current website.

My public Google Scholar Author Profile can be found here.
