General search: Advanced author
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 Google Scholar searches and to some extent for Microsoft Acacdemic in the latest Publish or Perish version 5.
The Publish or Perish General citation search can be used for advanced author queries.
Finding out what specific authors have published on a specific topic
In the search on the Google Scholar h-index [General search: find articles], you noticed that there were two author names (Harzing and Jacsó) that occurred several times. You therefore wonder whether these authors have published additional work on Google Scholar.
To find out you can run an advanced author query by combining an author name with the words Google Scholar in the All of the words or The phrase field and ticking the title-words only box (see screenshot).
Please note: This type of search can also be conducted in Microsoft Academic.
