Re: [xmca] Publish or Perish indices

Hi all, I just looked up the Harzing website. I don't have a PC or
Linux, so I cannot try it out. This software uses Google Scholar, but
I am aware of studies that show a direct correlation between google
scholar and ISI results. So while this software may show more
citations of your work, it is not more relative to other indices, if
the research I had come across a little while ago is worth any.
Cheers, Michael

An internet research network I subscribe too is worrying about its
reputation and those who publish in relevant journals. At MCA we get
requests designed to show assess its academic weightiness. Thought this
might be of interest to some of you. Check yourselves, or a journal,
or a nemisis out and tell us all the sordid details!

Dr Anne-Wil Harzing at the University of Melbourne provides a software
program called "Publish or Perish" that retrieves and analyzes academic
citations based on Google Scholar which has better coverage of
(citations in) books, conference proceedings and a wider range of
journals and retrieves more citations in Social Sciences, Arts &
Humanities than ISI
