Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites. Google Scholar helps you find relevant work across the world of scholarly research.





Google Scholar can boost the worldwide visibility and accessibility of OnePetro's content. Google Scholar works with publishers of scholarly information to index peer-reviewed papers, theses, preprints, abstracts, and technical reports from all disciplines of research and make them searchable on Google and Google Scholar.








Google Scholar uses automated software, known as "parsers", to identify bibliographic data of your papers, as well as references between the papers. To read more on Google Scholar's software and requirements visit Google Inclusion.

  • New papers are normally added several times a week; however, updates of papers that are already included usually take 6-9 months.
  • Indexing OnePetro's content for inclusion into Google Scholar can take up to six (6) months.











Google Scholar Citations provide a simple way for authors to keep track of citations to their articles. You can check who is citing your publications, graph citations over time, and compute several citation metrics. You can also make your profile public, so that it may appear in Google Scholar results when people search for your name, e.g., richard feynman.

Best of all, it's quick to set up and simple to maintain - even if you have written hundreds of articles, and even if your name is shared by several different scholars. You can add groups of related articles, not just one article at a time; and your citation metrics are computed and updated automatically as Google Scholar finds new citations to your work on the web. You can choose to have your list of articles updated automatically or review the updates yourself, or to manually update your articles at any time.
