Can the Author Remove the Patents?
It is known that the information of citations in Google Scholar is extracted from the scholarly journal articles within the Scholar database and also from the U.S. Patents contained in the Google Patents database.
The authors have the option to remove the patents as the source of citation data and/ or the option to include citations from legal journals and opinions from the state and federal courts. If a publication has been cited by those sources, it will contain a ‘Cited by Link’ in its entry. If you click this link, it will bring all of your published works and patents that have been cited by others.
It’s important to note, Google Scholar doesn’t index all scholarly articles, thus, some articles citing items under study may not be counted. Furthermore, Google Scholar will also include citations from an array of sources cited by calculation.
