outstanding role in the creation and consolidation of the fields of
Library and Information Science (29 profiles) and Bibliometrics (10
profiles). These profiles are already accessible on Google Scholar.

work from bibliographic oblivion and keeping their memory alive are the
main motives behind this project. We want to provide these authors with
a digital bibliographic identity, in order to improve the visibility of
their scientific production, and learn about the impact their work has
had on the scholarly community, thanks to the citation counts Google
Scholar provides.

the goal is to test the capabilities of Google Scholar Citations for

activities ceased many years ago (in some cases, more than two

of citations to these works, making note of the potential technical
issues the study of these cases may bring to light.
