  • (2019-11-26, v:4.3) Fabrizio De Cesare: Calcolo dell'h-index in un periodo definito
    Come si fa ad impostare un arco temporale definito in cui calcolare l'h-index? Se si può fare, il risultato tiene conto SOLO delle citazioni degli articoli pubblicati nell'arco temporale indicato o anche degli articoli precedenti? Nel secondo caso, si può impostare il calcolo SOLO sugli articoli del periodo di interesse? Grazie

  • (2017-10-10, v:4.2.3) Pluge in not working
    The plug in will not work with a secure https url and Chrome will not take me to a http site no matter how I alter the settings. Any work arounds?
  • (2017-10-06, v:4.2.3) Plugin broken in Chrome 61?
    With the plugin enabled, a row of text appears on google scholar: EditDeleteExportBibTeXEndNoteRefManCSVLabelsLabel as:Create newManage labelsApply but these aren't valid links, and aren't formatted correctly.
  • (2017-05-23, v:4.2.2) Peter Schüller: problems with Umlauts / UTF8
    Hello GB. :) Names with Umlauts are not showing the Umlauts. For example the following list of publications citing one of my publications systematically miss the "ü" in my name. If I open it without the plugin, the ü is nicely displayed. https://scholar.google.com/scholar?oi=bibs&hl=de&cites=17671644118010690190 Best, Peter (Schüller)
  • (2016-02-15, v:4.2.1) Ramachandra Hosmane: scholar h-index
    It says scholar h-index added to Google Chrome. But I could not find it anywhere in Google Chrome. And I have no idea where to start. Please tell me how to use this application after it has already been added. I have spent 3 hours trying to find out with no success! Ram Hosmane (E-mail: [email protected])
  • (2016-01-26, v:4.2.1) Fabio Stefanini: google scholar mi ha bloccato
    Ho provato a calcolare l'h index per tutti i risultati di una query. Ora il mio accesso a Google Scholar, evidentemente perché è stato notato un accesso ai dati tramite script. Come posso risolvere il problema?

    Just installed it but I don't see any effect. Running IOS 10.11.2.
  • (2015-11-13, v:4.2.1) Amit Lakhani: CAPTHCA detection
    Add a feature that alerts when Google needs CAPTCHA so a result doesn't get stuck in the middle of gathering statistics
