Multi-query center: List view
Note: This tutorial was originally written for Publish or Perish version 4 and all screenshots come from this version. Publish or Perish versions 5 and 6 show the multi-query center at the top of every screen for easier access. Its basic functions are similar to PoP4, however.
The list on the right of the Publish or Perish Multi-query center displays queries similar to the queries that you enter on the other pages, but presented in a condensed format.
Queries can be moved and copied
Queries can be moved between folders by dragging and dropping them with the mouse. They can also be copied (Ctrl+C), cut (Ctrl+X), and pasted (Ctrl+V).
Example of results in multi-query center
The screenshot below shows the full results of the queries shown in the Multi-query centre tree view. Please note that the results can be sorted on any column: simply click on the column heading. By default the queries are sorted in the order in which they were executed. The list below has been sorted by hI,annual.
List view columns
The list view displays the following columns. At present it is not possible to change the columns that are displayed, but this might change in a future version of Publish or Perish.
|Query||An abbreviated rendering of the query parameters, intended as a reminder about the query. To see all query parameters, press Alt+Enter to open the Edit Query dialog box.|
|Source||The source of data (e.g. Google Scholar, ISI, Scopus, Microsoft Academic Search)|
|The number of results (~papers) returned by the query.|
|Cites||The total number of citations returned by the query.|
|Cites/year||The total number of citations in the query divided by the number of years spanned by the results.|
|H||Hirsch's h-index calculated for the query results.|
|G||Egge's g-index calculated for the query results.|
|hI,norm||Normalized individual h-index for the query results.|
|hI,annual||Annualized individual h-index for the query results.|
|Query Date||The date on which this query was last performed.|
|Cache Date||The date on which the query data were last retrieved from Google Scholar.|
