Issue with Google Scholar

Hi There,

One of my client has his Journal Website i.e.

Since very long then are publishing abstract and citation, but none of them are getting index by Google Scholar… Although all Meta and technical requirement as guided by Search engine are been follow.

Still we don’t see any results, thereafter we are reaching you people to see if you can help us in understanding the issue and get this indexing.

Looking forward to your kind response!

I even tried requesting for inclusion with this link
But there hasn’t been any reply from Google Team

Hmmm. There’s quite a few help topics regarding Google Scholar and OJS:

With that being said, here’s the things I’ve tried:

I’m also getting a similar indexing issue: when doing a search for articles from recently published journals (1-2 years), only one or two articles appear.

Google Scholar search “source:stanford source:intersect”

Our OJS journal

One article from a 2018 publication that appeared

Since we follow a format for publication and we fill out the metadata in a standard way, it’s a little baffling that some articles are indexed but others aren’t. Will follow-up if/when I find something useful.

I would like to be sure if my meta-tag is true or not for a conference paper to be indexed in Google Scholar:

<meta name="citation_author" content="Svendsen, Svend">

Hi @Hakan_Tol,

Are you using one of PKP’s applications? If so, which one and what version?

No, I don’t use PKP’s applications.

Hi @Hakan_Tol,

This forum is for PKP software; you’ll need to check with Google Scholar for information on indexing if you’re using other software. Maybe this is helpful: Google Scholar Help
