  • Microsoft Academic Search automatically extracts citation information from scientific documents, which are crawled from the Web or provided by publishers. Currently most citation information is extracted from web documents. However, we are working to increase the citation coverage from publishers.

    Here are some other reasons why our citation number may be smaller than that of other services:

        We try to filter out citations from documents which have not been formally published as scientific papers;

          We filter out duplicated publications;

          We haven’t extracted citations from non-English publications.

    Please check back later for citation number updates.
