+@IJC_journal Yet Google Scholar has failed to find and add the citations in the ten books I found to my score for my article on Spinach.— Dr Mike Sutton (@Criminotweet) March 18, 2017
The article in question is: SPINACH, IRON and POPEYE: Ironic lessons from biochemistry and history on the importance of healthy eating, healthy scepticismand adequate citation Here
You can see the citations count for it in my Google Citations account Here
This finding proves just how influential IJC blogs are in terms of gaming Google Scholar.
Within days anything cited in the IJC is recorded by Google Scholar. Bit this case reveals also that Google Scholar is massively undercounting citations to work in published books.
The conclusion is surely that Google Scholar is not much good as an indicator of your impact if the publication citing you in relation to your orignal published work does not include a full scholarly reference to your publication source.
The IDD method can help you find where you have been cited in the publication record. What Google needs to do now is to use it in its algorithm. On which note, I suggest that Google first take control of its RankBrain AI robot that is currently really screwing things up on Google searches. See my blog on the facts about that problem. : https://www.bestthinking.com/thinkers/science/social_sciences/sociology/mike-sutton?tab=blog&blogpostid=24126
