Note: This tutorial was originally written for Publish or Perish version 4 and all screenshots come from this version. However, the information as such is also applicable for the latest Publish or Perish version 5.
1. Install Publish or Perish
2. Enter your search terms
Click on Author Impact in the left-hand column and enter your first initial and name in the Authors field.
- Use quotes around the name (e.g. "a harzing").
- It doesn't matter whether you use caps ("A Harzing" or "A HARZING") or lower case letters ("a harzing").
- The order of the search terms doesn't matter either, you can use "a harzing" or "harzing a".
3. Execute the search
Click on the button called Lookup [top right].
That's all! If you have a lot of publications, you might need to wait up to a minute or so before PoP can retrieve all of them from Google Scholar. However, for most scholars results will show up within 1-20 seconds. This is what my results looks like.
In case you are wondering….. those funny blue “h’s” in front of the cites indicate that this publication is part of the set of publications that contributes to the h-index, i.e. the h-core set.
