Another digit in the googleplex
Thu 17 Nov 2011 12:23 PM
Google Scholar has now added author pages, in addition to indiscriminate academic search. It has to be set up manually, but an author can distinguish themselves from other scholars who just happen to have the same name. This is handy for me, because - although I have managed to eclipse the doctor P.D. Magnus who writes about breast feeding - I still lag behind the chemist P.D. Magnus who writes about sulfone chemistry.

As most scholars do, I occasionally check to see how widely I am cited. The new page not only puts that all in one place, it also calculates aggregate impact scores.
