articles not appearing in Google Scholar

Postby jlaherty » Tue Nov 12, 2013 7:11 am

We run more than a dozen journals on one installation of OJS, version and all the journals running on our URL stem,, show up in Google Scholar, but 2 that run on their own unique URL (though still on the same installation as all the others) do not. They are and We're puzzled by this. Do you have any wisdom about why GS would be treating these differently? Is there something we need to do, and what - to OJS to GS?

Many thanks,
Jennifer Laherty, Indiana University Bloomington

Hi Jennifer,

I can't think of any reason -- unless you have a robots.txt file excluding the site from indexing? Your meta tags appear to be accessible as usual, so all I can suggest is that maybe Google hasn't gotten around to indexing it yet.
