Google Scholar

I've enables the Google Scholar Gateway plugin - what's the next step - how do I go about pointing alerting google scholar to the page it generates?

Hi Andy,

Google's XML-based Scholar harvesting was implemented, as far as I know, as a proof-of-concept, so you'll need to contact them with the URL in order to have your site indexed. The URL to the Google Scholar extract page is something like http://[url-to-journal]/index.php/[journal-path]/gateway/plugin/GoogleScholarPlugin, where [url-to-journal] and [journal-path] are of course adjusted to suit your own installation.

Since there were a few minor bugs in the 2.1.1 release of the Google Scholar plugin, I'd suggest downloading version 1.10 of from and replacing the version in your installation with it.

I believe Google is moving away from XML harvesting and towards a meta tag-based approach in the future, which we've accounted for in some of the new features in OJS 2.2, which will be released soon.
