dLibra-based institutional repository and Google Scholar – small experiment

Recently we made a small experiment related to Google Scholar speed of indexing of resources from institutional repositories based on dLibra software. In order to check this speed, we have prepared an article in PDF format in compliance with Google Scholar guidelines and on 26 April it was published in the PSNC institutional repository (dLibra ver. 5.3.1).

After 8 days (on 4th May), one of the co-authors of this paper got two Google Scholar alerts:

These alerts were sent because the author has his own profile in Google Scholar Citations.

Of course it is not necessary to have a profile to get the article indexed, but thanks to these alerts we know that in this case it took 8 days to have a paper visible in Google Scholar since the day of its publishing on-line in dLibra-based institutional repository.
