Track and manage your public access mandates


Today, we are adding a Public access section to Scholar profiles to help you track and manage public access mandates for your articles. If your public Scholar profile has papers covered by public access mandates from research funding agencies, you should see a new section that looks like this:
Click "VIEW ALL" to see the full list of mandated articles, and then click the title of the article to see its mandates.
Articles can be publicly available from several sources including the publisher, an institutional repository, a research area specific repository and others. The Google Scholar indexing system tries to include all publicly accessible versions that follow our inclusion guidelines.

For your profile, you can update the list of mandated articles and make corrections. You can also upload a public PDF to your own Google Drive; this makes the article publicly available from your profile and eligible for inclusion in Google Scholar.

Many funding agencies have added public access mandates to promote broad access to funded research. This helps researchers everywhere build on what their colleagues have discovered. You can browse a list of public access mandates from funding agencies worldwide and view summary statistics for each agency that include the level of public availability of mandated articles overall and over several recent years.

For more details, see the public access help page.

Scholar Recommendations Reloaded!


Your Scholar Recommendations just got better - fresher, more relevant, and easier to scan. If you have a Scholar profile and are actively publishing, your Scholar homepage should have recommended articles that look like this:
The list is organized by date with the latest articles on the top. You can skim over article titles, expand the summaries, and read the full article if available. You can also save articles in your Scholar Library to read them later. To do a more thorough scan, click on the “More articles” links.
On your phone, you can also swipe through the abstracts - and save the ones that caught your eye for comfortable reading on a larger screen:
The best part is under the hood. We have greatly expanded both the relevance and the coverage of the recommendations, so most researchers should find something new and interesting if they check weekly. You can, of course, check as often as you wish, or have the recommendations delivered to your email (click the blue "Follow" button in your profile to subscribe).

To bring you these recommendations, we analyze the articles in your Scholar profile. We determine relevance using statistical models that incorporate the topics of your articles, the places where you publish, the authors you work with and cite, the authors that work in the same area as you and the citation graph.

To get your recommendations, all you need to do is create your Scholar profile with the papers you have written. Recommended articles will automatically start to appear within a few days.

Follow Related Research for Key Authors

Scholar provides several ways to keep up with research in your area. You can set up keyword alerts, get recommendations related to your publications and follow your colleagues’ profiles.

Today, we are adding another approach to stay up to date in areas of your interest. Now, in addition to following articles by and citations to an author, you can follow research that is related to her work.

To follow related research for an author, simply go to her public profile, click “Follow” and select “New articles related to this author’s research”. Scholar will automatically scan all new publications for articles related to her research and will send them to you as an email alert.

This is particularly useful if you are a graduate student or an early stage researcher. By following related research for your advisor, your thesis committee and possibly a few key faculty members in your department, you would be able to see the research landscape from their experienced vantage point.

It is also useful if, like myself, you are an industry or medical professional who isn’t active in the research realm but would like to keep up. By following related research for leading scholars, you will be able to quickly view relevant articles in key areas.

The astute reader has no doubt guessed that this can also be used to get email alerts for research related to your own work -- go to your public profile, click “Follow” and select “Recommended articles”.

Query Suggestions for Detailed Queries


Last year we added query suggestions to help students explore topics they may not be familiar with. These suggestions go from a broad search to deeper and more specific areas. But many of you are already well familiar with your research area, and your searches are already specific and detailed. Sometimes, it's good to take a step back and go into a different, but related, space.

Today, we're adding query suggestions for detailed queries. They help researchers explore topics related to the original query. For example, consider the query suggestions for [semantic segmentation object detection]. They cover:
Semantic segmentation: [semantic segmentation rgb d images], [fully convolutional networks for semantic segmentation], [deep structured models for semantic segmentation], [indoor semantic segmentation], [fast semantic segmentation], [semantic segmentation scene classification], [semantic segmentation deconvolution network]
Object detection: [localization accuracy object detection], [joint object detection], [real time object detection]
Combination of concepts: [rich features object detection and segmentation], [semantic segmentation context for object detection]

Note that query suggestions appear below search results.
The new query suggestions span all broad areas of research. For example, see [prions protein folding], [global stock market portfolio selection], [test salmonella spp], [racial discrimination and gerrymandering], [gamma irradiation diamond detector], [binary planet formation], [aspect based sentiment analysis], [axial flow turbojet engine].

For now, the additional suggestions are limited to English queries. We plan to expand the coverage to more languages.
