|Delete the currently selected text from the text field.
|Copy the current citation analysis data as text to the Windows clipboard, from where they can be pasted into another application. This command combines the statistics (as per Copy Statistics > As Text) with the actual citations (as per Save As CSV).
|Copy the current citation analysis data in CSV (Comma-Separated Value) format to the Windows clipboard, from where they can be pasted into another application.
|As CSV with Header
|Ditto, but prepends a comma-separated line that describes each of the fields on the subsequent data lines.
|Copy the current citation analysis data in tab-delimited format to the Windows clipboard, from where they can be pasted into another application, in particular into spreadsheet programs such as Microsoft Excel or OpenOffice Calc.
|For Excel with Header
|Ditto, but prepends a tab-separated line that describes each of the fields on the subsequent data lines.
|Splits the selected merged citations into their original items.
|Checks all citations in the Results list and recalculates the citation statistics.
|Checks all citations that are currently selected (i.e., highlighted) and recalculates the citation statistics.
|Unchecks all citations in the Results list and recalculates the citation statistics.
|Uncheck 0 Cites
|Unchecks all citations in the Results list with 0 citations and recalculates the citation statistics. This is useful to exclude spurious references that Google Scholar sometimes returns.
|Uncheck CITATION results
|Unchecks all results that have Type CITATION. These are results to which Google Scholar found references, but for which the original work was not found online. This happens for many books and book chapters, or for non-print works such as software programs. It may also indicate that the reference that Google Scholar found misquoted the original publication's details or appeared in a format that Google Scholar could not parse correctly.
|Unchecks all citations that are currently selected (i.e., highlighted) and recalculates the citation statistics.
|Allows you to rename the current tree or list item; only applies to a few types of items
|Opens the properties dialog box for the currently selected item. This current applies only to the Query folder and Query items on the Multi-query pane, and has the same effect as clicking the Edit... button in that pane.
|Looks up the current query, using the internal cache if possible.
|Looks up the current query, bypassing the internal cache and contacting the server directly.
|Lookup Pending Queries
|Looks up all queries that were marked for later lookup or that failed during a previous lookup.
|Looks up the citing works for the currently selected results.
|Mark for Lookup
|Marks the selected query, or all queries in the current folder, for lookup later.
|Recalculate the metrics for the selected query or queries, for example after the result preferences have changed.
|Displays the next query page (in the sequence author impact, journal impact, general search, multi-query).
|Displays the previous query page (in the opposite order as above).
|Author Impact Analysis
|Displays the Author impact analysis page
|Journal Impact Analysis
|Displays the Journal impact analysis page
|General Citation Search
|Displays the General citation search page
|Displays the Multi-query center page
|Open Article in Browser
|Opens your web browser and displays the currently selected article or its abstract. This command is only available for articles for which Google Scholar returned an article URL.
|Open Citations/Related in Browser
|Opens your web browser and displays a Google Scholar web page that contains the citations to the currently selected article. If the article has no citations, a web page with related articles is displayed instead, if available.
|Check for Updates
|Contacts the Publish or Perish web site to see if any software updates are available. If so, you will be asked if you want to download and install these updates.
|Check for Announcements
|Contacts the Publish or Perish web site to see if any new announcements are available. If so, they will be downloaded automatically and displayed in the announcements panel. The Publish or Perish software executes this command automatically once a day if the software is running.
|Opens your email client and starts an email message to Publish or Perish technical support in which you can provide feedback about the program.
|Take Online Survey
|Opens your web browser and navigates to the Publish or Perish online survey.
|Donate to Publish or Perish
|Opens your web browser and navigates to the Publish or Perish donations page.
|Clears the entire results cache. This forces subsequent queries to access Google Scholar directly, which might be useful after a (suspected) update on Google Scholar, or if you have reason to believe that the cached results are somehow invalid. However, it will also slow down subsequent queries because their data has to be retrieved from Google Scholar rather than from the local cache.
|Performs on-disk garbage collection. This marks results files that are no longer in use by any existing queries and moves them to a trash area. Next, files older than the on-disk backup copies age are permanently deleted. Finally, entries older than the maximum cache age are removed from the HTTP cache.
|Permanently removes all contents from the Trash folder. Be careful if you use this command; once the Trash folder is emptied, its contents cannot be retrieved.
|Generates an error report about the most recently encountered query error, then opens your email client and starts an email message to Publish or Perish technical support in which you can describe the problem.
|Opens the Internet Properties dialog box that allows you to set options for Internet access through the browser. Note that this sets the system-wide options for Internet Explorer, so any changes you make here also apply to other browsing sessions that use Internet Explorer.
|Opens the General preferences and Queries preferences property sheets that allow you to edit some general program settings.
