Google Scholar for Academic Research: Scholar Results, Profiles & Alerts

Using Results, Profiles & Alerts

A few other Google Scholar features that may be helpful are the Cited by links, author profiles, and options to set search alerts.

  • Cited by links can be used to view a list of authors who have cited an article since it was published. Reviewing the Cited by list can help you identify additional sources related to a research topic.
  • Setting up a Google Scholar author profile can be useful for sharing citations for your publications and to keep track of who may be citing your publications.
  • Google Scholar also provides options to set up email alerts, which you can use to keep up to date on topics and/or authors related to your research interests.
