Google Scholar Citations is a part of Google Scholar that allows authors with Google Scholar Accounts to track citations to their articles, find who is citing their work and view citations over time. It also provides several citation metrics. Information on an author and their work can be found by people doing a Google Scholar search.

  1. Login your Google account.

  2. The Citations sign up form will request you to check the spelling of your name correction, to enter your affiliation, etc. 

  3. You will see a list of articles in the next page, and then add the articles which are yours.

  4. Once you're done with adding articles, it will ask you what to do when the article data changes in Google Scholar. You can either have the updates applied to your profile automatically or you can choose to review them beforehand.

  5. Finally, you will see your profile. Once you are satisfied with the results, make your profile public.
