5.2 How to perform a general citation search

To perform a general citation analysis:

  1. Enter the relevant parameters in the various fields (see General query pane for an explanation of each parameter);
  2. Click Lookup or press the Enter key.

The program will now contact Google Scholar to obtain the citations, process the list, and calculate the metrics, which are then displayed in the Results pane. The full list of results is also available for inspection or modifications and can be exported in a variety of formats.
