As an online and freely accessible academic search engine, this platform allows Researchers to search for academic content and resources. It contains information from academic publishers, university repositories, and other websites that have been identified as scholarly and scientific.
However, for academic content to appear in Google Scholar a complex list of requirements need to be fulfilled. For instance, there are different guidelines for inclusion for HTML articles (such as preparing article URLs; configuring the meta-tags in Dublin Core or Highwire; appropriate references section) and other aspects that are required for PDF files (setting up unique URLs; specific criteria of formatting the title with a font of at least 24pt, author names, bibliographic citation; marking the references).

Usually, after publication, each article published in any one of our academic journals is included in Google Scholar in 7-10 days (based on Google Scholar’s crawling algorithm).
