No indexing in Google Scholar

Postby polesello » Wed May 14, 2014 2:01 am

Hi all, we have some journals that are NOT indexed in Google Scholar, and they are in one only installation of OJS (version 2.3.6).
In particular:

I checked all tecnical issues (presence of metatags in articles, robots.txt allowing crawling) but still no results. I sent also two emails to Google Scholar technical support two months ago, but they replied with a generic answer (see techical guide to indexing, verify, etc).
I thought that indexing was almost automatic, but unfortunately it is not.
Anyway, the journals are perfectly indexed in Google (not Scholar).

Any ideas on something I have still to verify?

Hi polesello,

Unfortunately I can't tell you much. OJS 2.3.6 is a little old but does have the required Google Scholar tags, so it should be picked up by Google Scholar. If not, only Google can tell you why.
