Google Scholar citing references
The Google Scholar citing references pane in Publish or Perish shows information about a citing references query. A citing references query is performed when you select one or more results in the results list of another query, right-click on them, and select Lookup Citations in Publish or Perish. It allows you to view and edit the attributes of the selected citations data query.
This dialog box contains the following fields and options.
Enter the title under which the citations query is displayed. You can choose any name you like; Publish or Perish doesn't attach any particular meaning to the data title. It is preset to the name of the query that contained the citing references.
After changing the Display title field, you must click Apply to make the change permanent.
|Cited works||[Read-only] A list of the works whose citations were (or will be) queried. The list length is limited to approximately 2000 characters; if there are more works, their citations will be queried, but the works themselves will not be listed in the Cited works field.|
Multi-function button with the following functions.
Note: The [Default] function is obtained by clicking on the main part if the button; the alternate functions appear on a drop-down menu when you click on the drop-down arrow on the button.
Note: It is not useful to perform multiple direct lookups for the same query shortly after another; this merely increases the load on Google Scholar and increases the chance that your computer may be temporarily denied access by Google Scholar. We recommend that you only use the Lookup Direct function as a last resort.
|Apply||Make any changes in the Display title field permanent. If you edit the contents of the Display title field without subsequently clicking Apply, then the original contents of the field will be restored when the pane is refereshed.|
|Revert||Restores the Display title to its previous state. This function is only available as long as you have not clicked Apply.|
Multi-function button that copies the results or metrics belonging to the current query to the Windows clipboard in one of the following ways. See Exporting your data for information about these formats.
Note 1: The [Default] function is obtained by clicking on the main part if the button; the alternate functions appear on a drop-down menu when you click on the drop-down arrow on the button.
Note 2: The labelling and order of the Copy commands has changed somewhat between PoP 5.x and PoP 6.x, but their effects have remained the same. The following table shows the menu commands in PoP 5.x and PoP 6.x order.
Multi-function button that creates a new query object, as follows.
Note: If you click on the main part of the button, a new query of the same type as the current one (i.e., Google Scholar) will be created; the alternate functions appear on a drop-down menu when you click on the drop-down arrow on the button.
