ABOUT THE RESOURCE
For many researchers, Google Scholar is the first entry point for finding scientific articles. Including the collections of institutional repositories in Google Scholar search results provides instant worldwide visibility for these publications. This benefits authors, the scientific community and the institutions.
In 2019, EIFL co-organized webinars on DSpace and Google Scholar for EIFL partner countries: Belarus, Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Ukraine and Zimbabwe
In the webinars, Monica Westin of Google Scholar demonstrated Google Scholar indexing and what is required to ensure the inclusion of institutional repository collections. The webinars also addressed common DSpace repository indexing problems, how to identify and resolve common DSpace repository indexing problems, and how to check the coverage of your repository in Google Scholar.
